I'm using the QML mobility location 'Position Source' class to pull gps location on the phone. It works perfectly for the most part except that it stops gps as soon as the screen shuts off. Setting 'run_in_background' on the bar description doesn't help, unfortunately. I notice that you can easily set 'canRunInBackground' with the C++ usage of QtMobility, however I'm not very well versed in C++. Is there a way to allow the QtMobility Location to run in the background too, or am I forced to rewrite the whole script just to include this property?
Yup, while the screen is on the results are logged, but as soon as the screen dims, the results stop. The QTimer functions seem to work just fine even with the screen off, so I was hoping there was a way for QtMobility. Guess I'll have to look into the C++ side. Thanks.
