+Kolenka Posted May 2, 2013 Share Posted May 2, 2013 (edited) I tried today using battery saver to record a track. The screen and backlight turned off after the 30second time limit I set. However, unfortunately when I viewed the track later, it showed a straight "bee line" from where it turned off to where I then powered it back on. So it appears that allowing it to enter battery saver does not continue to record tracks or GPS locations. This sounds like behavior I saw with Auto Pause. It would tend to jump largeish distances when it detected a pause because it would wait for you to travel 100+ ft before turning tracking back on. Made the Auto Pause feature not nearly as helpful as I would have liked. Do you have Auto Pause on? As I can't reproduce it even sitting still with Auto Pause off (it keeps generating points while the screen is off). Wouldn't surprise me if there was a bug with Auto Pause + Battery Save, as Auto Pause is a new feature, and itself a little touchy/buggy. Since Kolenka is clearly an expert user, will be interesting if he can duplicate your results. Expert user? Maybe. More like bored engineer that likes to dabble.
