Hi,

please get Locus Map 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. Also, switch OFF Google Services assisted location in Locus settings - GPS&sensors.

I tried all these optioneel. When i leave the phone on it records the track. When i switch of the phone recording stops. When i switch on again it is a straight line betreden the off and on switch. What is wrong. My old phone never had this problemen. I have now A52 samsung.

What is the solution?

Hello,

this problem is caused by your device system battery optimization and/or missing all-time location access permission.

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 or here: https://dontkillmyapp.com/.

Allow Locus Map all-time access to precise location so that it can run in the background.

Without these measures the app will be either killed by the system when running in the background or it'll lose GPS fix. Sorry about that but these are Android measures which we have to respect.

The problem is not solved yet.

I asked samsung. There is a strang thing, in the setting of my phone and the batery setting you can select if a app will never sumbler. But when i want to add locus the app doesnot show up in the list to choose from. Why? Maybe this will is the problem?. Samsung advice to delete the app and reinstall or renstal the hardware to find out if it is a hardware or software problem.

Hi,

so perhaps reinstalling Locus Map could help? And please check if Locus Map is really excluded from the optimization according to https://dontkillmyapp.com/samsung.
