Pause GPS tracking on the Android app

I've using Android App Version 0.5.9. While recording the a GPS track, there is no ability to pause.

When doing multi-day hikes, I like to pause tracking overnight to save battery and to avoid GPS bounce distorting the track statistics. Other apps like Strava, ViewRanger, and apparently previous versions of CalTopo have this feature.

Other users have raised the issue in discussions 213 and 249. However, these discussions have been closed, and hence I am unable to comment on or subscribe to theme.

Therefore, I'd suggest keeping a single issue on track pausing open until the missing feature is actually released. This would help keep all conversation in a single place rather than requiring users to open new duplicate issues.

    Hello, and thanks for adding to the discussion. It's fine to post again with an additional request for the update. We have this on our list to develop, but I'll be sure to post that we have more users asking for it!
