Thank you for the app, it’s surprising that this basic functionality doesn’t come built-in with the device.
Would it be possible to either add an option to autostart tracking when GPS is ready, or to allow the user to start the tracking despite GPS not being ready yet? My problem is that if GPS isn’t ready right away, I forget to manually start the tracking when GPS becomes ready later. (I’m used to ignoring the device buzzing during activities.) I don’t mind missing GPS data at the start of my walks (before satellites are found), tracking the time is more important for me.
Also, for my 735XT at least, the up arrow button has a long-press options menu, which (among other things) allows you to lock the buttons. For some reason this doesn’t seem to work in Simple Walk, as the up arrow button only brings up another data screen. I don’t know if it’s possible to implement (or pass through) the options menu in apps, but I’d like to be able to lock the device for walks too.
