Live tracking does not resume when app is minimized

dimm shared this problem 5 months ago
Solved

If initially app is minimized and track recording is turned off and mobile data is on, and I turn off mobile data then custom live tracking stops. It's OK. Then I turn on mobile data but live tracking doesn't start again until I open the app. Both in standart and Run as service mode. Battery saving is turned off for Locus map. Android version 9.

This is due to GPS turns off. I unchecked "Disable location when app is hidden" but it didn't help.

Hello Dimm,


double-check the GPS settings on your device and application.


1) Make sure Locus Map has all the system permissions for accurate location access.


If you have Android 10, select "always".


2) Make sure Locus Map is excluded from all battery optimization sources.


Detailed information can be found at this link on our website or here


3) in Locus Settings> GPS and Sensors> turn off automatic GPS shutdown


4) in Locus Settings> GPS and Sensors> Enable positioning supported by Google services


If the problem persists, contact us.

Have a nice day

Andrea

Made all steps describe here: https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:gps_lost_fix_android6 excluding "turn OFF RAM optimization" (Xiaomi Android 9) - nothing changed.

I have no problems with track recording. Option "Maintain GPS fix when track recording is paused and screen off" also works perfectly. So if I start then pause track recording and then start live tracking then GPS is keeped on.


But if I'm not recording track and want to use live tracking the GPS turns off after switching mobile data off when the app is minimized.
