Tracking points

When I use track recording the only points recorded are the start and the stop points. How come?

Can you please clarify your problem more?

When recording a route, do you only record the start and end point?

Do you have GPS turned on - it has located your location - is the GPS icon in the Locus green?

Did it happen to you for the first time?

Can you send a screenshot?

Thank you for the clarification.

Have a nice day




When recording a route the only points recorded are the start point and the end point, and with a straight track line between them. Nothing more is recorded.

It happens all the time on my new phone (Samsung Galaxy S10e) , but didn´t happen on my old phone.

Yes, of course the GPS is turned on and the icon is green.

Kind regards,



Hello Anders,

The most likely cause of the problem is an operating system performance optimization setting.

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 "all the time".

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

Detailed instructions can be found at or here:

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

4) in Locus Settings> GPS and sensors> Turn on location supported by Google services

Have a nice day
