Getting location data in background using mergExt

Post by Scoperzor » Thu Apr 23, 2015 1:32 pm

I'm wondering if anyone here has used the mergBgTask external to draw data from location services while their app is in the background?

I have only successfully been able to run up number counter in the background, but when I use the same technique to get coordinates from mobileCurrentLocation and insert into a DB every few minutes, the command stops running after about 3-4min. I need to get this data at a set interval until the app is closed by the user (or logout etc). Any way around this?
