Galaxy Watch 6 doesn't update the position during recording when the phone's screen is off. The phone is Galaxy S22. How can I fix this?

Was that because we used the Basic plan instead of Silver or Gold?

Hello,

this problem is caused by your device system battery optimization.

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/.

I have tried all of these suggestions, but only one thing worked. The location permission had to be set to "Allow all the time" for Locus Map. However, this wasn't available at first. Then I went to the phone's Settings -> Location -> Recent access -> Locus Map, and this option appeared. Now it works. Thanks.
