Android Support stopping when Android Apps using location are being used

When ever I use HereWeGo or SportsTracker for a sustained period of time Android App Support stops working.

Device; Xperia 10iii running with Android App Support enabled and running MicroG.

I have only noticed the problem after the phone screen has timed out and I “wake” the phone up to see the screen. It would seem, though I cannot be absolutely sure about this, that the problem is related to the phone screen timing out or the phone “going to sleep”.

When I go back to the the app, (HereWeGo or SportsTracker) there is a message saying the app will be available after the Android Support App has launched. Note; I have not closed the app, it has been left running in the background and the app tile is still shown on the screen as an active app when I “wake” the phone up, it just not doing anything as the Android Support App has stopped.

It’s a small nuisance when HereWeGo stops as once restarted it can be set to continue the route but with SportsTracker it stops tracking. While you have a record of the portion of your exercise up until it stopped there is nothing after that which kind of defeats the purpose of recording the exercise.

I have checked for things like battery management and cannot find any setting which might be causing my problem.

Tonight I have updated to but there’s nothing I can see in the release notes that relates to my issue.

Does anyone one have any ideas?

I have the same problem too

I have no solution as yet. The problem is still happening. Hopefully others will report this issue and Jolla will be able to find a solution.

It has only been a problem on my Xperia 10iii. I haven’t had this issue on my 32 bit Xperia phones running Sailfish.

The other difference is I never ran Micro G on theses phone either.

What phone are you using? Are you running Micro G?

I have xperia 10ii and MicroG. I stopped trying to use Android navigation when I always had to reboot the phone. After a cup of coffee it never started working again. Not once.
It seems like random processes are killed for memory. A Doom game running in phone :wink:
Now I’m seriously thinking if android would serve me better.

Hello everyone, I think I managed to get the Android GPS app working. I tested it on the Trackbook app for 27 hours and it didn’t fail, I tested it on the Sports Tracker app for 16 hours and it didn’t fail, I tested it on the Relive app for 6 hours and it didn’t fail.
Solution before turning on the app, turn off the location, run the app for a few seconds and then turn on the location, it worked for me. As I said previously, I use the Xperia 10III sailfish
Test it and post your comments here so others can see if it worked.
