I notice that sometimes the GPS registration of my location (via google timeline and google fit, but also via Wikiloc, which I use for walking routes) is absent.
I notice that sometimes the GPS registration of my location (via google timeline and google fit, but also via Wikiloc, which I use for walking routes) is absent. I suspect that this is related to the fact that I often have my 4g disabled (I often do not want to have mobile internet, to be not disturbed / tempted) and not carry out activities on my phone during that time (for example on the bike, then my phone is just in my pocket and I do not do anything active with it, apart from listening to music via Spotify, but without using the screen or otherwise interacting with it).
I find that sometimes quite irritating, because I like to keep registering my location. In Wikiloc it is even very problematic, because my phone can not indicate whether I'm on the right route or not (so I might walk incorrectly for long times
With my old phone, a Sony Xperia Z5 Compact, I do not have that problem (even without a sim card inside), so I suspect it is something specific for this phone.
I do not have battery saving on, so it's not that I let software disable certain functions (atleast, not that I'm aware of).
Does anyone have any idea how this happens and whether this can be prevented?
(a related issue, I suspect, is that Spotify stops playing after 10 minutes if I have turned off my 4g and I have not set Spotify to offline mode).
