I suggest you ...

Current weather/location tracking takes too much battery!

Since the recent changes (app has improved a decent bit btw, good job!), Quantimodo requires constant GPS in order to record locations or weather. This is MURDER on my battery! It's used 20% of my Google Pixel in the past three hours. The user should be able to select a static location for weather, at the very least; I know this has the potential for faulty data, but when my battery drains this fast I won't be able to use the feature at all!

As for location data, maybe an option to poll GPS at regular intervals, or perhaps pull from Google's location data (if the user is comfortable with that of course).

The main thing is that right now, location and weather are unusable because they leave the GPS on all the time.

Thanks, Shabs!

I’ve separated out the weather logging from the location tracking. Now you should be able to enter your location at the bottom of https://app.quantimo.do/ionic/Modo/www/index.html#/app/import

I’ve tried adjusting the settings of the background GPS logging to reduce battery usage. However, the ongoing GPS logging is inevitably going to have significant battery consumption. I’ll keep trying to figure out how to optimize further, though.
