Hi All

I am reworking one of our apps to be more battery friendly. Currently the GPS service running is running with a partial lock and getting the GPS postion at regular intervals, let just say every 5 mins it turns on the GPS, get a fix and turns off the GPS.

This would be better handled by a service callback, StartServiceAt. I have read from other posts that StartServiceAt should be really only called from Service_Start, is this really true ?
