Creating a driving rig

I have been inspired by designer2k2 work (https://www.designer2k2.at/en/mods/elektronik/156-raspberry-pi-wardriving-setup) to create a car rig that I could mount on/under my parcel shelf. Having never worked with raspberry Pi or Linux really, this will be new to me, hence why I am thinking of using ...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Great, I will go for pausing for the time being, doing some other tests to see why it is only when Tasker launches WiGLE that it is not able to run in the background properly.

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Sorry to double post, but I have some further questions: Based on leaving WiGLE running all the time, and using Tasker to automate the pausing and scanning... 1) a) Does pausing the scan stop it getting GPS location? I am aware of the background listener, but I want to know that the battery will not...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

I have some results that may or may not make sense, and I am still investigating and trying things out (N.B. I have reinstalled WiGLE and left settings as default, including the speech with has given me more insight): -It is fairly clear to me now that if Tasker is set to start WiGLE based on whatev...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

I have received "Lost location" and "no GPS fix" when the app is left for a period of time, and today after clearing the data and cache, I did think it was a GPS jamming toast, but leaving the app running in the background, after a period of time it does indeed say "WiFi appears jammed, turning off,...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

I don't know what to say really, I just know that it all seemed to stop working about a month ago now. This morning I have cleared the data, meaning I needed to set the app up again, and left the GPS jamming detection on this time, which confirms that when the app is re-opened that the toast pops up...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Sadly it has been rebooted a couple of times recently, and the same lack of location when the phone screen is off or the app is not active is happening :( I am 90% sure it was an automatic OS/UI, or security patch for March that is the issue and has changed the 'rules of the road' for WiGLE and anot...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Sadly I do not bring great news; the drive(s) were a failure. Driving across town, I left it to do its thing via Tasker with no interaction from me, and I can see it picked up no networks / no locations. Drive to the supermarket, where I left it again to do its thing via Tasker, and this time I open...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

I have some positive news, I think. I went out for a walk this morning, actually walking the same route as last week, and the run was over 3000 and new WiFi over 900. This was opening WiGLE manually and not using Tasker event, but so was the same walk last week. I left the app running in the backgro...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Thank you for offering up things to try. Notes/questions: 1. the GPS toast probably pops up a lot saying "found location"/"lost location" - I'd treat that as a red herring, but the first suggestion below will give you a sense of how accurate your location is over the course of the drive by superimpo...

WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

I am not sure what has happened, but in the last week, maybe, WiGLE WiFi on Android no longer seems to get any locations when the screen is not on the app. To give some background, I use Tasker to start the app itself when on car Bluetooth connection, and it uses the idents later on to upload and ex...
