Keep External Bluetooth GPS connected
When the external Bluetooth GPS is connected/tracking my location, and I minimize Maps Pro or switch to another app, when I come back to Maps Pro it is no longer tracking and I must reconnect.
Additionally, it would be great if the app could connect to external GPS when I start it up.
Automatic reconnect has been added to Maps Pro a few months ago
Background work is still limited because of Microsoft restrictions. But since the last version of Maps Pro, your bluetooth device will be automatically reconnected with Maps Pro once you go back on the app, or when you turn the device off and on
Hope that helps,
it wouldnt be as painfull if the GPS could reconnect automatically
After checking out what Microsoft made available to developpers, you can't track in the background in Windows 8, you can only track while in the foreground. In the background, you can only get the geolocation information every 15 minutes, so that is not enough for most usages.
If Microsoft decides to enhance their Software Development Kit, Maps Pro might be able to do it but for now it is impossible due to system restrictions
