    GPS app and battery usage

    Advertisement



    I have loaded Gooogle Maps and Nav4all on my 8310...
    Is it my imagination or does G-maps want to use the GPS all the time, it just seems like once I navigated w/ it my battery drained much faster. I don't think Nav4all does this but cannot say yet.
    Any input on which apps do & don't suck the battery dry even when not in use?

    are you sure you are killing the application and not suspending it to memory?

    Coming from Treo land and being a BB Newbie I was unaware you could do that. I assumed that ulike WM when I left an app it closed... at the risk of sounding more ignorant than I may have already how do I make sure... I have noticed some apps in the Advanced-Applications list are bold

    Re: GPS app and battery usage

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~that is a very helpful thread... Wierd thing is when I exit nav4all it always asks if I am sure I want to exit.. But it is still bold in the app list.. Maybe NBD but it does not seem to be the same battery drain as Google maps. This could all stem from my basic ignorance of the device. Is the GPS always on even if I am not using an associated app?
