Hi,

Would it be ok to give location permission only when the app is in use (as a battery drain prevention)?
In case if I want to use it together with gmaps or waze.

Thanks!

Hi, at this point the application only works with the background location access. However, it only accesses your location while the service is running. If the application is stopped, the location is never accessed.

So I better chose the "Allow all the time permission"?

Yes, otherwise the app won't even start.
Thank you!

And huge thank you for such a great app. Just heard about it from Vortex's trip video. Hopefully will test it out soon on my trip. Amazing job!

(I think I found a bug with PIP on my Google Pixel. It is really slow when I come back to the normal fullscreen mode from PIP. It distorts icons but after a bit resizes them to a normal ratio).

Thanks for the kind words!
Regarding the bug, I'm having the same experience on my Pixel. I'm investigating it.
