Possibly enable GPS tracking with iPhone display off
Authored by: hamarkus on Apr 15, '09 03:32:45PM

iTrail seems to be tracking the GPS with the display off. But since I basically always listen to something while using iTrail I cannot exclude the positive effect of audio playing.
But I can attest that iTrail will require a restart every time I switch to the iPod module, which is annoying. Moreover, playing music and tracking GPS at the same time (plus in remote locations with weak radio signals) is one of the fastest ways to drain the battery. I get a maximum of about five to six hours doing so (which is a bit short for long outdoor trips).
