I recently bought a CAT S42 smartphone to replace a many year old CAT S41 phone that is dying. Figured it was the next model in the line, should work as well with LMP as the S41 did. No joy. I returned the first S42 due to GPS problems, got a replacement and see the same issues. Debugging and problem isolation on this has been a real challenge.

It would be much simpler to just return the S42 and buy some other brand/model that is known to work well with LMP.

My usage is that I ride dirt bikes (motorcycles) in the boondocks. I use LMP for navigation, and for track creation for future rides. I need a solid, reliable GPS. Its got to be rugged, since I crash the bike a lot. I've destroyed 3 or 4 normal smartphones before I got my S41. Speed, style and price are not major drivers for me. It has to work great with Locus Map Pro.

I can't figure out how to turn on auto-record when Locus Map Pro starts up.
I'm running it as a "service" perhaps that is the problem. I've got "settings -> track recording -> automatic start set to "Car" but it doesn't start recording when I open the app.

How do I make it start recording when I open the app?

thanks

I have just replaced my old CAT S41 with a new CAT S42. I've been using Locus Map Pro for ages and love it. But its not happy on my new phone. I'm running version 3.49.1 of LMP. The phone runs Android 10

Over a 3+ hour ride, Locus Map Pro recorded only 100 points. I also run a Garmin GPSmap 64ST to record the track, and it recorded 1353 points. The LMP recording missed a lot of points, it says that the track is about 7 miles long, while the Garmin track says it was 18.8 miles. Clearly the LMP missed a lot.

I am guessing that this is either a setting on the LMP app, or on my S42 smartphone. But I have no idea what could do this.

I've attached the two GPS files

How can I debug this?
