    have tried a couple of GPS 'keeping' apps in an effort to allow Endomondo, Sports Tracker and Map My Walk to continuously track my walks. However whenever the screen is off, whether locked or not, all these apps simply stop tracking until the screen is reactivated. 2 weeks ago I walked over 10 miles using Endomondo and it tracked only 3 miles before the screen timed out, then it stopped tracking until I checked it at the end. As soon as I activated the screen, it began tracking and linked the last known point (at 3 miles) and the end point with a straight line.

    When the screen is kept on, all of these apps work perfectly, and I have an old HTC Wildfire with a very old version of Sports Tracker on it, which works perfectly with the screen locked.

    This is annoying in the extreme as I am on a strict training programme to walk 100km in 26 hours this July for a charity event and need to keep records. Can anyone help?

    Hi, I have the same problem. I think this is due to an Android update.
    I've talked to the HTC support and they are not aware of the problem and do not have a work-around (yet).

    I've performed a hard reset of my M8, but it didn't solve the issue.
    Tried also a "GPS-keeper" app, but the GPS signal is constantly "killed" by android when the screen is off or sleep.
    So this doesn't work.

    I also tried a GPS status app to check if the GPS module is working and that operates perfectly with a lot of satellites.
    However; if the phone goes in standby/sleep (turn on/off button to off), the GPS signal is lost again.

    Have you tried the Android support? Any update regarding this issue?

    Hope to hear from you!

    I'm having the same issue with a Cubot phone - tried two GPS keeper apps but phone kills GPS when the screen is switched off.
    Does anyone have any ideas (I've turned off off power saving options etc.)
    Can a developer option be used?
