Hi,

after installing the last version of trekbuddy I experienced that the batter is empty after some hours and gets warm. I uninstalled the application, but it didn't get better. After reinstalling the OS by the service it is ok again. Now I tried it again, and installed tekberry once more. The same problem. Battery is low after some hours and gets warm. I have to bring it to the servce again to reinstall fimware and OS. Did someone have an idea what could be the reason for it.

Thanks for helping
Clemens

What version did you used before? I'd like to track the changes in source code that might have caused this problem...

On Blackberry it is 4.6 and for TrekBuddy I tried 0.9.96. I didn't install an earlier version.

I can see power consumption related change in 0.9.93, and also in 0.9.96, but 8310 user reported problem with battery drain for 0.9.95, so I assume it's the former change.

I could provide you with 0.9.97 development build, fairly stable, if you feel like trying, just tell me if you install OTA or via PC. Thanks.

EDIT: Do you have Settings->Location->assisted GPS on or off?

I have no problems with my Bold 9000, latest TB and latest 5.x F/W (610).

"Try Assisted GPS" is checked here.

With full battery I was geocaching for 6 hours and more some times using TB, so I personally cannot say that TB is very battery consuming.

So (to me) it seems not be a problem that is TB related.

JSR-179 allows users to specify preferred power consumption criteria, so I will introduce settings option to control it.

Together with another, already supported criterion - try assisted GPS ("cost allowed" in JSR-179 terms), it makes interesting combination for users to play with Twisted Evil

(not sure how this document is up-to-date, though)

hi kruch, i tried both, asssted gps on and off. after gettin my mobile back today with new installed Core Application V5, I used blackberry maps with gps. The high power consumption started again. After 5 hours in holster and no application running the battery was empty. Tomorrow I'll change the blackberry device. I think it is a problem with the gps hardware.
