Laps not recorded when battery low?

Postby metro2084 » Mon Oct 15, 2018 7:27 am

I got this message about 10% or low battery on my iPhone X in the middle of the session. Since I was in gloves I couldn’t press “ok” so the message stayed on the screen.
When I got back to pits I was amazed that only about half session was recorded. Pretty sad, cuz I set my best time of the day then (as per transponder) but it wasn’t recorded to the LapTimer :/
So, does it really stop recording when you get low battery warning?

Thanks.

The app is inactivated when a system alert is coming up. This is like pushing the app to background. This is the reason a missing power supply is shown as a warning (yellow alert), and the connection is shown in illustration #3 of Quick Reference.

oh, wow, thanks. Good to know. So there's no way to keep tracking in the background still, right?

Not yet. I will probably add this feature for the upcoming Harry‘s Biker app. There are many issues with background recording however, especially video will never work.
