Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

fix confirmed - it's remarkable that Google would change such a core behavior at the very end of a release lifecycle.

Pixel update RQ3A.210905.001 breaks GPS

GPS no longer updates when the device is locked after upgrading Pixel devices to RQ3A.210905.001. (Android 11 September). Beware, upgrades will render your devices unusable for stumbling. We are researching options.

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

I take that back. GPS appears only to function with the screen on. Furthermore in the case of this update (RQ3A.210905.001), adding

Code: Select all

android.permission.ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION
has no effect - GPS does not update when the device is locked.

Re: Trilateration query

What you're proposing actually maps somewhat to the clustering approach we use. discarding low-signal points generally isn't necessary, if you're weighting based on the square of signal strength per observation. Trying to infer anything deterministic based on structure is extremely difficult since W...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Just upgraded a Pixel 5 to RQ3A.210905.001 - it had silently set WiGLE to "battery optimized" without asking.
Upon disabling, the app behaved as expected.

Re: Trilateration query

That's an excellent question, and analysis. Because we're a sort of "Wikipedia" model, accepting contributions from everyone (lots of users, lots of instances, lots of gear with varying radio and antenna characteristics), we aim to become more accurate over time, but we don't ever achieve perfection...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Because WiGLE is written as a foreground Service (https://developer.android.com/guide/com ... d-services), ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION shouldn't apply, per https://developer.android.com/training/ ... ermissions.

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

It's worth making sure "battery optimization" or "adaptive battery optimization" are turned *off*.
We've definitely seen that make a difference in past instances.

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

thanks for helping out! Still trying to think of what would shut the GPS off when the screen is off. It's a conditional setting Apple provides now, but not common in Android (it would require either a developer setting, or an app that made it happen intentionally, certainly something we don't do!). ...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

hm, the camera's just for the QR-scan for account login, and "phone" is just to deactivate TTS when you're on the phone. I'm linking this thread to a twitter post in hopes of getting some independent confirmation from other folks with 3as. It's a major problem if it's widespread. If not, we can get ...

Re: Sorting functionality

You're not missing anything - the lack of "order-by" is one of the major shortcomings of WiGLE's api/v2. v3 is arriving endpoint-by-endpoint, but I don't know when we'll get around to search yet. You're very welcome to use the API and sort the results, but as with all elements of the panopticon, the...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Well that's not good news. 1. check the permissions under Settings -> Applications -> WiGLE Wifi Wardriving" -> permissions: make sure it has the stuff it asks for (sometimes Android "optimizes" these for you starting in 11, and withdraws them on your behalf) 2. Did you get an OS upgrade recently? H...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

that definitely doesn't happen on other Pixel 3a devices. A few questions:
- are you running a custom OS build?
- Do you have unusual power saving measures engaged?
- have you allowed permission for fine-and-coarse grained location?
