Google Maps on CODI
« on: January 23, 2020, 04:54:52 pm »
Has anybody been able to figure out how to keep Location services running for Google Maps when using the latest CODI update (v1.1.1.13) for the new CODI navigation feature?

Google Maps notifies it has 'lost the GPS signal',  once I close the unit for CODI navigation. Restarting location services from the CODI does not appear to get Google Maps back in the saddle...

There definitely seems to be a problem with the location button/function and codi -- mine works when the case is closed but the location icon shows up as 'location not activated', and that's probably why I am not seeing maps on codi, I am only hearing the voice of the gps. There are similar problem with functions for media players (other ones that google ones); all in all, it seems that codi behave inconsistently (from app to app, from phone to phone).

Check battery saver mode isn't on before you shut the cover; this seemed to be the cause when I had the problem last week.  You may need to adjust the level at which it auto turns on if you are close to running out.

Many thanks Tom. That worked for me.

Solved in my case: you have to enable the notifications in google maps (settings --> apps and notifications --> Maps --> turn notifications on). The little location icon remains shown as not activated (on CODI on the top left of the screen), but I can live with it.

I probably should have said, I don't see maps from Maps on the CoDi, but directions from Maps (eg turn right in 2 miles).
