Turn off the screen when recording the track
« on: February 07, 2011, 16:18:08 »
Hi,

is there a possibility to turn off the screen when I am recording the track? I don't have to look on the map all the time and this can save battery.
Now, when the screen turns off (or when I manually turn it off) i always disable the track recording.

Thanks for your help.

With Motorola Defy it works as menion described without any problem. (Android 2.1)
While turning off the screen I also lock it and have to unlock after turning on.

The GPS is still alive? Or do you have installed any energy saver?

I tried this with RMaps (same result) and with GpsCompass Map after I turn off the screen the lock screen appears and stays (track recording continues) and if I turn it off again lock screen goes off and recording is disabled.

I have custom ROM MDJ's CyanogenMod 7 (v.2.6) A2SD+   Android version  2.3.2
So that could be the problem  :|

btw. really great application!!!
