    Thanks Xavier. That appears to fix it. For reference the sequence is:

    Settings > Apps > Avenza Maps > Battery > turn on Allow background activity

    Thanks. I know how to turn location services on and off. The app works fine as long as it is on the screen, but it doesn’t record points whenever it is in the background or the screen is off. None of the other GPS tracking apps I use share this problem. Is there a fix for Avenza? Or is it just crippled on certain versions of Android?

    I have also found that on my phone Avenza doesn’t record points if I switch to another app even if the screen stays on the whole time. When I bring the screen back to Avenza the track jumps to the current location but nothing has been recorded during the time I had another app on the screen. I hope this helps you figure out what is going on and what I can do to fix it. Avenza Map is such an awesome tool, but this glitch makes it very hard to use on my phone. I have heard from another team member who has the same problem with a Pixel 3 running Android 10.

    Thanks for your help Xavier. I have followed steps 1 and 2. I can’t find any option for Always on in the Locations services settings on my phone. It still stops recording tracks when I turn off the screen. Do you have other things to try?
