Update location not working correctly

Hello Caltopo team,

I am able to use the update location button to find my location on an offline map. However, subsequent attempts to update location do not work correctly. The location will always show the same (original) location. I have to close the app from the app drawer and reopen the app every time I want to update the location.

This feature was working correctly on a trip July 11-13 but by July 27-30 it stopped working correctly. As of 8/24 it was still not working correctly.

If it matters, this is on a Pixel 3 with the latest version of Android Pie.

Best regards

    You're right. This happened in the 0.4.1 update. We know about it, and think we have the problem pinned down, we are actually working on it today. For now if you either long press the location button to turn on "follow me" mode or start a track it should update and then continue to update correctly.

    It will be fixed in the next beta release for sure.

    Thanks for letting us know about it.
