Does not work in background on Meizu M9 It works with map I have used in long time ago in windows mobile pathaway. I can also make new with touratech QV, but that all positives. List of problems: - tracking in background does not work, application stops tracking short time after device switch of the display but it is caused by mobile phone = Meizu M9 switches off GPS when screen is off. No way how to fix it. It is nature of this phone. - it is not possible to export all track, only one by one, too complicated - i have never figured out how to set custom data on edge of display that was easy with windows mobile - shows locked GPS even gps have lost fix. - sometimes it has gps on in bottom panel, but in menu it shows that gps is off I was very satisfied with windows mobile version. Currently I switched phone and I will give it second chance.
