Tracker pauses itself

I have a Huawei p20 pro and when recording my tracks the tracker kreps pausing itself and i dont understand why. I start it and it starts tracking fine, but sets itself on pause after a few minutes or a few hundred meters. So when i open the app to check the GPS, its been paused, making the training information and track worthless. Is there any way of fixing this problem?

Look here ....



this behavior is most probably caused by your device battery optimization. Exclude Locus from it or turn it off. Various manufacturers have various methods, not all of them are included in the "battery optimization" settings section, they can be scattered over whole settings including security etc. All our knowledge on this problematics is summarized here: Plus two steps in Locus settings you can try but we are not certain they'll help in your case:

- go to Locus settings > GPS& Sensors > Google Services assisted location > ON

- go to Locus settings > Miscellaneous > Run Locus Map as service > ON

Nevertheless, on some Huawei an Honor devices we have been experiencing these issues despite the battery optimization is switched off or Locus excluded. More information here:
