Android 8 Oreo background issues

Aaron — Sep 21, 2017 07:36AM BST

Can you advise if there is a way to keep the app running in the foreground.
Since updating to Android 8 Oreo, the GPS does not continue to record after the screen times out - as the app is read as being in the background, and the system limits it's use.
This is due to a Android 8 changing the behaviour settings that limits background usage.
I have played with the setting in the app, but nothing keeps the app as a foreground app.
If there is a way to do this in the current app, if you could advise.
If not, can you advise a timeframe for an app update to include this.

We're working on a fix for the Android 8 issue. The changes we've made are being tested now before they are release in a day or two.

Please keep an eye out for updates.
