GPS lock lost - Workaround?
I made 2 changes that possibly 'solved' the problems. I think it would be good if those having the same problems try this workaround and report their findings here. Hopefully that feedback help TT to fix this long standing bug.
POWER SAVING --> EXTRA
I have good phone. Nothing high-end. I'm quite sure the speed of my phone isn't causing the spinning problem but still it could point to a bug in the TT software.
This is an android setting. I think it makes no difference but I mention it anyway.
In Andoid 7 there are 3 levels of location.
High Accuracy = GPS + WiFi + Bluetooth + Cellular
Battery saving = As above without GPS
Device only = GPS
My reasoning for using GPS only was that many location signals may actually confuse TT. When not driving the chances of trying to use WiFi is much higher than when driving.
That said, I don't think this is causing the problem because it's a very well tested Android service and I never had location fixing errors with any other app requiring a location.
