Dawn, your question-I don't know much about this stuff (even among very small), but I don't think resolution of your device will need a kick of battery. I think the enlightenment of this problematic thing.

I'm trying to understand where the vast gap in consumption (dedicated versus GPS unlocked).

If it diminishes the circle screen unlocked and minimum brightness off, will get needed?

I reckon so.

Try to remember how long you held your old Nokia battery with small screen before moving to smartphones

One of the problems with unlocked it processes performed in the background by the hardware and the operating system.
A dedicated GPS there are very few "these processes" mainly because the operating system is designed to be used as navigation device and does not give support for diverse applications.

You may be able to get a good time with it any software unlocked + you can remove all the ה"מיותרים stuff but I still can't believe you're going to get to a dedicated device.

Maybe the very question of whether Smartphone app can replace dedicated device depends on the type of trip we do?
I think a trip to an area where you can recharge your phone every day or two and use the application to make the navigation or an emergency is very realistic. Adventure in rough terrain without villages and cottages on the road may require a dedicated device.

You might need to change the approach to this question and come from the nature of use and the user's gait.

Agree with Arthur.

In general there are a lot of prossim on the operating system for phones. Believe dozens of people even.

The question is whether you can create a navigation application to shut down all processes on the device, and all communication (except Maggie GPS of course) and then you can move your phone to GE mode GPS only and save all that battery be needing yours

Don't have the application do that.
First of all, transfer to flight status. My phone in flight mode can last for days without almost become lost. When communicating, all processes running in the background and try to sync things just don't work (I guess you can go through the accounts, and synchronization of each individually, but I'm not sure it will save a lot).
But because the resource that robs most battery screen is certainly close enough that the GPS antenna behind him, when I turn on the screen to activate the navigation app and find my location, the percentages are starting to drop.
If you try to keep the battery as much as possible, turn the screen only rarely try to find the location on a map before you launch the GPS antenna, it can last for a few days probably. As Arthur said if it's the only means of navigation, and in rough terrain, not marked, it is not recommended. The battery is over quickly.

GPS antenna in unlocked takes more than a dedicated device?

That I don't know. But unlocked in flight mode, and I run it just to play with Backcountry Navigator and start GPS, two battery consumers heaviest they screen and my GPS. You can handle it, but everything else did not affect almost

In determining the rate oruxmaps sampling and GPS ichaa screen after a few seconds and wakes up in a single touch.
In reserve batteries or external battery as well.

GPS and navigation software working flight mode? Or every time you took a flight mode and returns?

Think there is no connection between flight mode to GPS. I.e. don't have cellular reception.

The same about someone experienced with the Magellan 320?

GPS antenna can also work in flight mode, that's something else applications
Not every application can work. only those that can work with local maps (as stored on your device) can work in flight mode (e.g. oruxmaps is one), and boys, or Google maps (I gave them an example, hope I didn't try to steer them in the field), pillar and even oruxmaps. in case you want to use a map of the network will be relatively limited-flight mode or download to a map of the area where you are while you are connected to the Internet Once you disconnect from hainterat and stay out of this area, without map or map in low resolution. Of course, in this case there is nothing to talk about the rest of the information they use.

Therefore, it is clear that in any case have oplein maps to a file, the path you are.

Another way to reduce energy consumption of O'Rourke's screen is to move to night mode. Tablecloths and black screen appear will consume less power.

I wonder what will be the situation needs a plane + oplein + option maps the screen + sampling less often.

Hope you had a chance to examine the issue in the coming days and take notes.

Thanks for the answers arrive.

With dark screens only OLED screens (where pixel black is really a non-pixel, and therefore don't need energy). LCD screens, the black is really "black", and consumes energy, just like any other color. Most devices are already with OLED, but worth checking out specifically with your device before you just dark.

And less frequent sampling-I'm not sure what you mean. If you're the picker to save it for later, so if you save every second sampling/5 meters it eats more battery than every five minutes/100 metres. But generally, to conserve battery power, anyway not sampling the track itself. In this case, when you turn on the GPS navigation application, he receives a total system. You can't control when and how many times per second it will continue to ask ("where am I now? And now? And now? And now "). It will be depends on the application itself, and what that Android provides him, and all kinds of optimizations. But anyway, you can simply turn off the GPS antenna right after you get the fix. You already know where you only want to look at the location on the map. No need to leave the antenna operates across the peaks.

I think it is inaccurate. Lighting behind the pixels ", just dim lighting, and a smaller provider get darker screen. It is saving battery. It's not an absolute, to darkness only.

This has nothing to do. There's actually a specimen by sampling hardware and by application. By sample app changes nothing nearly as far as needed. So little is constant consists of two things:

Power for calculations)

1) for saving power consumption in memory

Yes hardware power is given to "adjust". Search for "changing polling rate android gps"

About monitors here some old article that explains the difference in uniform lighting all have LCD screen, no matter what color pixels. In AMOLED (not OLED, as I wrote earlier), separate lighting for each pixel, and black is just pixel pixel light which "off". So there will be a difference in battery usage for such screens, if you change the background of your phone to black background, for example.

Of course, if you're talking about screen brightness-definitely recommended, auto brightness and put on the lowest brightness you still manage to see. The problem is usually under a strong sun tours so low clarity would be difficult to see the screen.

As for sample-I do not know how one can easily play with the sampling rate of the antenna itself. But just wait for the peaks (whether sampling hardware happens one or a few specimens rapidly), then turn the antenna. Sounds like a simple solution for use in GPS, minimal and increase battery life.
