Prevent from power/battery savers

To work properly MyCarTracks runs in the background. All major devices come with their own battery-saving features which are good for your battery life but what they actually do is block apps running in the background. This causes that MyCarTrack is also blocked which results in not recording all your journeys and then you think our app doesn’t work properly. The same applies also to any battery saver apps (Advanced task killer, Battery doctor, Juice defender, …) you can install on your device.

Make sure that MyCarTracks is not blocked by any battery saver app or feature. Here are some manuals that you can follow:
