I would like to have the GPS service start on start up. I have a location service that only works when the GPS is on. However GPS only starts when I urn on a app that uses the service. I would like to have it turn on when I start my Razr.
On my Motorola Droid Razr Maxx running JB, if the GPS is on when I shut down the phone, it's still on when I start the phone. It only goes off if I turn it off, then it stays off until I turn it on.
On my Razr the GPS service is enabled on startup but I cannot locate the phone using the location service (AVG Remote Management) unless an app that uses GPS is running. For instance I cannot locate the phone unless Google Maps is running. Remote access is useless then unless I always have Google Maps or a like app running all the time. There must be a way for the GPS to run in the background so that remote access can work.
I think that's an issue with whatever app you're using. Maybe you need to ask the developer of the app. I just look in my pocket and there's the phone.
I appreciate that and as indicated earlier in the thread I use AVG Remote. The service works great when the GPS is running, not just enabled. I am sure that the apps you mentioned also use GPS so the issue will remain the same. How do I get GPS running in the backgroud on start up?
Yes, the apps I mentioned use GPS, but apparently they do not need another app to be running/using GPS in order to work.
These apps will work in the manner you had requested, at startup without another app running which is using GPS.
