Android app background execution

I went for running a couple of days ago, and I used a tracking app to record my time and distance. It’s an android app I had also used on the iPhone (komoot).

While it basically works well, it stopped recording after around 11 minutes. I suspect that the background execution of the app got suspended after 11 minutes, so the recording stopped.

Is there a way to get around this limitation?

Did you already check permissions? Maybe it needs a switch checked under app permissions. …

Have you tried using the native app OSMScout?
It has a tracking option, which saves tracks to .gpx.
If your Komroot app can import gpx recordings, you should be fine!
