I'm not a tech guy and have no idea how to jail break an iPhone. I just know that when I put it in airplane mode, the Gaia GPS app shows my exact location using GPS when I bring it up. And I've confirmed from long hikes that my battery is barely being used when I do this, because I only lose a few percentage points.chumley wrote:@neilends
There might be an override available on a jail broken iPhone, but the GPS most assuredly does not work while in airplane mode on iPhones.
See bottom of this page: http://help.gaiagps.com/knowledgebase/a ... leshootingPlease note:
If your phone is in airplane mode, the GPS won't operate, and Gaia can't record tracks.
Geeeze, this explains a lot. Tibber take note!joe bartels wrote:The authority on accuracy is not Garmin nor a smartphone. I've hiked in a group with three Oregon 450s. We never had the same results. jj & I typically have very very near results with the Fenix. It's on your arm in great satellite view and we don't sit around. The best results out of any device is an unobstructed satellite view. If I have HAZ Tracks running it is in the top pocket on my pack near the outside. On one trip I placed it on my hip belt and got poor results.
Nope. The gps is still attached to the cellular radio. I will have to test the battery drain when out of service area and still on.The Eagle wrote:new iPhone 6's?
Have they changed the way crApple does the airplane mode?
