I have a Samsung S10e. When im using LocusMap 3.x it is running with out problems. I made an update to LocusMap 4.x, silver edition. If I let the mobile run for a track recording, the mobile doesn't find the GPS satellites, only occasionally. So that I getn't a good track. I think, maybe from 50 positions, Locus registered only one or two. I think this is a problem between the mobile an Locus. But I can' give more gps-rights to the LocusMap 4.x. This time I use your version 3.610, it is running perfect, track recording is super. But in the future I what use the 4.x version. What can I do.

Hello,

please, at first, get Locus Map 4 permission for all-time access to the location and exclude Locus from all means of battery optimization so that the app can run in the background, see http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:gps_lost_fix_android6.

You can also try to set the position enhancement in Locus:

Open Locus settings > GPS&sensors:

  • Location filter > select medium or heavier filter
  • Google Services assisted location > turn it ON
  • Altitude manager > settings tab > SRTM data - select "Optimize GPS values" or "Replace GPS values"
  • Altitude manager > settings tab > Pressure sensor > turn ON (if available)
  • Altitude manager > settings tab > Altitude filter - select medium or heavier filter
