One more question
Do you have to pay special attention to the track recording?
I have noticed that the tracks with the old S2 are recorded very accurately, always nicely following the road.
With the new S23 it looks like the GPS switches off in the meantime. It is often recorded points only as the crow flies.
When I look at the satellite page or in the app GPS status, almost always immediately about 30 satellites are displayed for the fix.
Do I need to do something else in Locus like "enable satellites in background"?
The setting for cycling is: 10m |5 s| 25m.

It sounds like an aggressive power saving mode on the S23. Many people report such experience. I'd investigate Android power saving settings.

Hello,

one more note:
Today I recorded a track with the app Geo Tracker running in the background while I used Locus for map reading. While riding, the screen was mostly turned off.
The track recording was flawless, there were no dropouts or air lines between the points.

My experience today:
While Locus (blue track) only records aerial lines when the display is switched off, the app Geo-Tracker (red track), which runs at the same time, works perfectly.

You cannot view this attachment.

Locus Map Classic runs as a service.
Disable when the application is running in the background == off
Turn on GPS during track recording == on
Turn on GPS during guidance == on
Authorisation Location always for Locus Map Classic

Any hints?



Regards J.

Still something power management related on Android side. Vendor dependent.

Hmm. I do not have experience with the Samsung, but were you looking to: https://dontkillmyapp.com/samsung ?

Hi Menion,

Thank you, good hint.
Locus was optimized, Geo tracker was not. I have changed it and will test it.
I'll be in touch.

As promised,

after the change in Android for the app Locus Classic from optimized to non-optimized the track recording now works properly.

Thanks again
The request can be set to solved.
Regards J.
