Geo Tracker setup on Huawei devices

In order for Geo Tracker to record tracks in background correctly without interruptions on Huawei devices, you need to make several additional settings in the system:

Open System settings > Battery and make sure “Power saving mode” is switched off:

Next, on the same screen tap “App launch”, find “Geo Tracker” in the list and tap the toggle to the right of it. New window will appear, please make sure all three toggles here are switched on – «Auto-launch», «Secondary launch» and «Run in background»:

If you set everything up correctly, this apps list will look like this:

Also app will suggest you to turn off battery optimizations on recording start, if they are turned on (this is the default). Please confirm it, if you want the tracks to be recorded correctly in background.

    • Hi Heribert,

      This is a common issue with many apps since Android 8: Huawei has some specific restrictions on background recording, which prevent apps from working correctly in background. These settings can only be changed manually by user, and instructions just give you a guidance how to do that. If you’re using Geo Tracker for a long time and everything works fine for you, you probably don’t need to change anything and can safely ignore this instruction.
