A number of users reported having issues with the reliability of track recording on FATMAP.
We have been investigating and the good news is we’ve found the problem. The bad news is we can’t fix it quickly.
We’ll spare you all the technical details but due to the memory requirements of the high resolution 3D map data and the way iOS and Android manage their memory usage when apps are in the background, we can’t reliably record tracks until we completely re-write the recording engine or the map engine – and that won’t be possible in the next few months. We’re very sorry.
Quality is very important to us so we moved the feature back in to beta and took the button off the main screen.
We know many of you were enjoying track recording without problems so there is a way to get the feature back. Just go in to the settings menu and you’ll see an option to bring back track recording. Just be aware, it might not work as well as it should.
Thanks for your understanding.
