Hi all,

I've downloaded GRG GPS Watch and the only issue Ive got is that my screen timeout affects the gps signal. I have a Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 and can only set it to a max of 10 mins (there is no option for never) any ideas?

Cheers

Paul

I think the best option is to download one of the apps that prevent your screen from turning off.  There are several available with good reviews. 

Here are a few links:

Hope that helps.

Great - thanks for feeding that back as this will hopefully be useful for anyone else with Android phones.

Hi

I've started to use the GPS stopwatch on my Samsung Galaxy III however have noticed that I keep getting split timings - any idea why this might happen? I've got the screen rotation and screen lock off. Could I be losing my GPS signal?

Hi Gill,

If you don't want split times, you can change the Auto-Split setting to "Off" instead of every mile/km.  The Auto-Split setting shouldn't affect the overall time for the run though.

Thanks John, I'll try that next time I use it!
