Apps interference over GPS

[ Edited ]

Hi,

does anybody know what's going on when several apps are trying to use GPS/Location service at the same time?

As I see it, if I use LocationListener() the settings I used in my BlackBerryCriteria are "locked" on GPS, and

other apps like Bblackberry Map has to use them as well.

Maybe I was doing something wrong?

Re: Several GPS based apps

Sorry, the situation is following:

My app uses GPS/Location with LocationListener().

When my app goes in background mode, and I try Blackberry maps I see that BlackBerry criteria I set in my app is used in BB maps as well.

If I exit my app completely, BB maps uses its own, different criteria.

So, how can I avoid it (apps interference over GPS) or is it possible at all?

The problem is that in my app I use fastest criteria when in the BB maps I need more accurate one.
