Live location sharing does not recover when mobile signal is lost and regained.

When I share my live location with family and then travel outside of mobile signal and then back into signal, the live location sharing does not resume. Is this a bug or is there a setting that I need to change?

Hello,

Live tracking should pick up where it left off when the signal is restored.

I think it will be a more likely problem with battery optimization. When there is no activity, the system kills Locus completely.

Exclude Locus from all means of optimization so that the app can run in the background.

Instructions on how to do it are summed up here: https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:faq:gps_lost_fix_android6

If it does not help, try to find help specifically for your phone here: https://dontkillmyapp.com/.

Please let me know if it helps.
