battery life / power with requestLocationUpdates function

Postby steven_d » Fri Sep 04, 2009 10:21 pm

Hello @all,

i've read the following sentences in the android references:

"The frequency of notification or new locations may be controlled using the minTime and minDistance parameters. If minTime is greater than 0, the LocationManager could potentially rest for minTime milliseconds between location updates to conserve power."

My question is, how much power will be lost (and how fast!), if i track a route with both parameters 0 (minDist = minTime = 0). I don't want to write a app, which can only run for small tracks/routes...
