Thanks guys, I was aware that later Android tries to use GPS for “better bluetooth scanning” but I have other devices that I just deny GPS location services for and they still work fine, as the screenshot shown says “While it is not required, it is recommended….”, this is not the case for Mooshimeter, it is an absolute necessity, otherwise it simply doesn’t work.
Although I would prefer the Mooshimeter to work without GPS, it would at least be nice if it told me it wasn’t prepared to work unless I do switch on GPS. As I said, it’s less of a problem for me know I know, but I was starting to think I had a duff device or something up with my mobile as all my other BT devices are working fine with GPS off.
I’m not overly concerned about privacy, I just prefer to have gps off to extend battery life, having to turn it on to connect to the mooshimeter isn’t the end of the world, just a niggle.
