Home Forums Sailing Journal Tracking Stops during race? Puzzled?

    The first few times I used the phone app (Android) it worked fine, giving me full coverage of the race. But the last three tracks have stopped recording during the race? Yesterdays stopped towards the end of the 1st leg and then restarted for the last third of the race?

    The races last between 1.5 and 2 o hours and occur during the afternoon. The phone has plenty of charge.

    Any ideas on resolution would be appreciated

    Regards

    I’ve had a lot of trouble with this also, to the point where trying to record races on my phone is nearly useless–it almost always drops some portion of the race.

    I’ve taken to also using a backup handheld GPS and extracting/uploading a .gpx file, but still lose all of the data that I would get by mounting the phone (heel angle, etc) so it’s kind of disappointing.

    If this due to app crash on your phone, then standard handling should help:

    restart the phone, stop all running apps (I do it by clicking on square button on phone, and then it shows “Clear all”) , and then start raceQs fresh. Good luck.
