    Hi Stephen,

    Thank you for your post! Changing some settings can often help in cases where tracking is not working when the app is backgrounded. The settings in question are the following:
    1. In Avenza Maps, change the location source to internal only by doing the following: Avenza Maps > Settings > GPS Settings > tap the selected option under Location Source to adjust to - Use Only Internal Sources
    2. In your device settings, change the location permission for Avenza Maps to "Allow all the time": Settings > Apps > Avenza Maps > Permissions (the path may vary slightly on different Android devices)
    3. OS-level battery-saving settings also seem to sometimes affect the GPS when the screen is off. Make sure that Battery Saver mode is disabled on Android: Settings > Battery > Battery Saver.
    Please reach out to us via https://support.avenzamaps.com/hc/en-us/requests/new to let us know if any of those settings fixes the issue or not, and if you have any questions please reach out via the provided link. Thank you!
