Track recording unaccurate

In Locus Map Pro, for about a month, the track record is no longer working. In the map I can only see a straight line linking the starting point with the arrival point

Hi Agostino,


seems you have battery optimization on in your mobile - reduce it or switch off. More tips: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:gps_lost_fix_android6

Thanks Michal for your fast answer. The device location works, and I can see my exact position on the map. What doesn't work is the track recording. Anyway I am going to try to apply your tips, and then I will let you know if it's all right.

Hi Agostino, yes, GPS works and you can see your position on the map when your phone screen is ON but the GPS is switched OFF when the phone goes standby in your pocket - provided it is battery optimized. Please try to exclude Locus from the mode or switch the optimization off and let me know how it went.

Hi Agostino, I hope all is well now and Locus works as it should. Marking this topic as answered.

I disinstalled the optimization app, I installed GPS Locker and every time I record a track with Locus Map Pro I open GPS Locker. Doing so, Locus Map Pro now records my tracks well. Thank you for your useful support. I give a tip to Locus Map producers: why don't you insert a function like GPS Locker into your app?

Believe me Agostino, if we knew how to do it, we would have added it ages ago...
