Hello

DMD Location Service (which is what takes care of recording GPX also will be stopped under these conditions):
– Screen gets turned off
– DMD2 is closed (not the same as when you simply move to another app, recording continues if you open another app without closing DMD2)
– DMD2 cannot continue to record if it crashes, not possible on any version of DMD2

The “Always” location permission is not good anymore, most devices will kill background services for battery management. Only solution is foreground service (with a notification) and while screen is turned on.

So basically to keep recording either leave DMD2 in foreground or open any other app without closing DMD2 and without turning off the screen.

The only thing that makes no sense to me is it stopping recording because you got a call, i will need to do some testing about this.
