Verizon VX6800

One of our users has reported a bug with their Verizon VX6800 (branded HTC Titan as far as we know, correct us if we’re wrong). It seems that even though they disabled their power saving mode as described in this post, their GPS signal still stops when the screen goes out. Furthermore, they can’t turn the screen back on using the center button, they have to use the power button instead, which probably means that the device has gone to full sleep mode.

We can’t think of any reason why this would be happening other than the display screen being somehow linked to the power button. This way, when SportyPal turns of the screen, the entire phone goes to sleep mode.

Has anybody else encountered this problem and have you found a way around it?

    it works better but it still looks like when the screen blanks or goes off, that it is not logging GPS points in that mode. It keeps great track of time and distance but there are no points between when the device turns off and when it turn back on. Also, distances are measured in straight lines so the actual distance is determined incorrectly beacuse there are not enought points to acurrately measure/calculate. That said . . . nice improvement from 1.0.2. Keep up the good work.

      Well, it’s not much better if it still can’t get any points when the screen is off… We still have no idea how we could solve this.

    Is it possible to have an options page that we can control if the screen turns off?
