    Let me preface this by saying that I HATE running so when Endomondo didn't track most of my run with GPS, I was PISSED.

    While using Cardio Trainer the same thing started to happen and I figured out mid-run that it was Smart Actions turning the GPS off when I turn the screen off. Now my question:

    Will turning off Background Data while the screen is off affect the running app (while leaving the GPS on)? If so, I'll just dump the screen off action altogether.

    Thanks for the help.

    I don't believe that Endomondo uses background data to track you directly (since it uses GPS) but it obviously does communicate that infomation while sync'ing with the web so I don't know for sure if that happens live or only once docked.

    I didn't even go into that much detail when I thought of the question but that's enough to make me delete that Smart Action. Thanks for responding.

    Wish I could have been more helpful with better suggestions, but I hope it at least resolves the issue at hand.

    Your response was helpful. I think I'll see how long the charge lasts without the screen off action.
