Couldn't find a thread concerning this issue ... if this has been already answered, sorry for asking again, but would appreciate to point me to the answer.
Well it is a common problem that when the screen gets off gps gets off as well. I tried all the "promising" apps on play store like gps lock, gps too, etc. I switched off starmenia mode, switched off power saving none of these fixed the problem.
Although a couple of apps have implemented a fix like CamSam a radar warning app and runtastic the sports app.
Any hint, advice or solution is highly appreciated.
it has no sense to keep the GPS enabled if you are not recording a track, to save battery.
you can keep the GPS enabled if you record a track, or if you are following a route/wpt. navigation and the GPS is ON.
