Add a setting that will disable "pause updates automatically" when in Trip Mode #48
One thing I have found challenging is I almost always leave "Pause Updates Automatically" on, in order to save battery since I spend LARGE chunks of time in one location. Typically my house. The problem is when I am doing a trip (typically walking) and my movement is so slow that Apple determines that I am not moving. Apple then pauses the update automatically and my trip ends
So my proposal is a setting that when activated:
I don't know what you would call the setting but in essence it's "Don't pause updates during trips".
I've found in the time since I wrote this I have switched to not "pausing trips automatically". I've found it doesn't seem like it impacts battery life THAT much, obviously the cellular impacts battery life much more. So lately I've just left it as always tracking location but only sending every 30 minutes to the server.
For now, I don't plan on pursuing this feature unless we get feedback from others that it would be useful, then I could always put together some code for it.
