Hi,

I need GPS also in background, when the app sleeps (as most users will do or so I think).

In https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/background-location-tracking-and-android-10.123355/ I read that I have to add the line
SetServiceAttribute(Tracker, android:foregroundServiceType, "location")
to the manifest.

When I do this, I see "module tracker not found".

Ths is the whole manifest

B4X:
AddManifestText(
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" android:targetSdkVersion="29"/>
<supports-screens android:largeScreens="true" 
    android:normalScreens="true" 
    android:smallScreens="true" 
    android:anyDensity="true"/>)
SetApplicationAttribute(android:icon, "@drawable/icon")
SetApplicationAttribute(android:label, "$LABEL$")
'End of default text.
AddManifestText(<uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.location.gps"/>)
' aus dem forum
SetServiceAttribute(Tracker, android:foregroundServiceType, "location")

Does the original example work for you ?
Do you have in your app a service called Tracker?

If not, you should change the "Tracker" word in the SetServiceAttribute in the manifest to fit with the name of your service.

Stupid me! I did not see the example, have not much idea about the manifest editor. The example seems to work, further tests will follow :) Thank you!
