Can I avoid wakelocking on tracking hike? (gain and lose GPS fix on time interval w/o wakelocking)
On this http://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/q/24568/16694 stack exchange site I have been suggested this application: http://code.mendhak.com/gpslogger/ for its ability to turn off GPS fix and thus removing wakelock on the device during tracking in between the tracking points.
This proved by my testing on 100 km hike in Slovakia on Nízke Tatry as very efficient, because when I tracked with the app, I only had the awake state for a few seconds to get the GPS fix and track the point and after that the wakelock was dropped which resulted in extreme battery life savings. Compared to any other tracking app including Locus, which keep the GPS fix on, even when I request to track a point only every 3 minutes or so (which is perfectly okay for a mountain hike), I get very poor battery life results. You can imagine that an average smartphone which is wakelocked and fixed with GPS does not survive more then half a day. I wanted to track 5 days straight. This was possible with a power bank and this new free app.
I noticed when I looked through settings that you offer tracking very similar to the one in this other app, with just this one small difference - there is no option to drop the GPS fix in between the points and lose wakelock which makes all the battery life difference I need.
Is there some option and I missed it? If not, would you plan to add it? If yes, it would make me a buyer of your PRO version, cause I like to have one app for everything.
