Android Question [RESOLVED] - B4A - 9.0 - GPS

Hello

I upgrade to 9.0, and noticed that when using the GPS and settings the update freq to start(1000,0) the events fired as if I used start(0,0). I have to have the app ready for tomorrow, so I downgraded to 8.8 and the events seem to fire correctly. I don't have time to futher investigate this, so maybe other can check it.

I think there might be an issue to background services in 9.0 as the app is being killed even though the necessary settings are applied to the device(s) to allow the app consume battery. I will need to further investigate this when I have time.

Regards

John.

You are most likely right. The background services are stable again since I stopped using the gps_NMEA event and used the location changed event. It's been one of those days as I am sure you have also had.

When the GPS_start is called with (1000,0), I assume that you pass this to the location service in android and it send you the rmc data and then fire the event, is that correct ?
