    After lots of trials i found some smart actions combinations that make my battery go a long time.

    Here is a shot of the battery screen. Phone on since 5 am. 4.5 hour round of golf with golflogix open. Web surfing texts calls.

    After golf today.

    So use this program to your advantage

    Also golflogix alone used to put me at 0% after 4 hours. Being at 90% after 18 holes is astonishing

    Smart Actions says my device "BIONIC" is not compatible!

    I am reading this on the Bionic forum and mine is rooted. Can someone help please? Thanks.

    It all depends on how you use your phone. Set it up for your needs. Currently at 70% battery after 18 holes of golf and very light use after. Off charger for 15 hours

    Is there any way to use this to reboot? I miss all the power button options on Eclipse.

    There is really no need to turn GPS off unless you have an app that polls your location periodically & you can't stop the app. The GPS radio isn't like the wifi radio, which is actively searching for a connection. The GPS setting is basically Enabled (ready to go but not necessarily "ON") or Disabled (unable to be used by an app).
