Last easter i went to do a hike and at some point, in a open wide area, OSMAnd ans Maps.me (both based as far as I know in OSM) lost its GPS signal and it was not possible to position me in the map.
At the same time, i was recording the route in my crappy “mi band 5”. I think that mi band is using google maps?.
Google maps was positioning me, unfortunately there was no data availability and i hadn’t download the map for offline use in gmaps (i did in maps.me and osmand)
the point is that both apps using OSM maps lost gps signals and both apps using gmaps were able to position me (but no map was available).
I think it is the third or fourth time this happens.
then this apps trying to get the GPS position, kills the battery.
at some point both apps got the GPS signal, very strange.
Once i had data, the mi band 5 track was able to show the full trial.
OSMand, where i was recording the route too, cancelled the tracking automatically.
Lucky i had the trial downloaded from wikiloc and loaded in osmand + mapsme, and more or less i could follow the route.
Any idea why this happens and what i can do to fix this behaviour?
obviously the phone GPS was OK.
While trying to get the signal, i restarted, killed etc… the apps and phone.
