Bluetooth GPS device freezing
I am using Locus Pro with external GPS module Holux M-1000 and mobile Lenovo a6000 (Android 4.4.4). I know BT GPS topics are not very popular, but I would to share the following issue.
Every few hours (e.g. 3 times in 5 hours or once in 2 hours etc.) it happens that Locus does not change the actual position (arrow) any more. It's still connected (green sat icon), but the position is not changing any more. If I look for visible satelites - no satelites are visible.
My workaroung: turn off and on GPS module, then connection is lost, then reconnected and then position is corrected. This is very annoying, I have several times missed the turning on bike ... :-)
My goal was to detect asap, that the connection was freezed and switch the gps (HW switch) off and on. I tried to add to dashboard: speed, visible satelites, accuracy - but all these values are frozen always - still showing the last actual figures.
I do not know if GPS modul always freezes or if the problem is in locus, but I think that locus should detect the problem.
I would like to have this problem resolved (to have no freezing any more) or at least detect immediately this problem.
E.g. is it possible to have time in seconds since the last gps fix on the dashboard? That could be great indication (next time I have to check if during the freezed mode, the last GPS fix time is being updated)
I am ready to prepare logfiles or try several things, if needed. Please let me know what I should do.
Thank you in advance
