Battery ManagementThe gps receiverof the iPhone consumer a lot of power. A fully charged battery lasts for about 5 hours tracking. Longer intervals between locations results in longer battery life. With 3 minute intervals and the iPhone in sleep mode you will be able to track for 13 hours. TrackLog needs the most power when in background while another application is active.
- Keep Intervalls as long as possible.
- Keep TrackLog in the background for a short time only.
- Go to the sleep mode while TrackLog is active in the foreground (recommended).
- Kill TrackLog after you're done tracking.
- If you will be tracking for several hours, connect your iPhone to an external power source.
- Put your iPhone asleep while TrackLog is in the background.
