Does Telstra Air interfere with GPS apps on Android?

Answered

Strange problem. After downloading the Telstra Air app on to my Galaxy S9+ my Glympse app which I have used for years could no longer operate correctly. Tracking on the receiving phone was all over the place. I removed the Telstra Air app and the problem went away.

In the process of fault finding I tried the same configuration on my wife's Galaxy S8+ and got the same results.

It appears that the Telstra Air app is interfering with our GPS/Data. Has anyone had similar problems?

Instead of uninstalling the Telstra Air App have you tried to the Sleeping Apps list so that it doesn't run in background?

 

Settings > Device Care > Battery > Settings (Three dots top right) > Sleeping Apps

  • Yes it was, thank you

Sure did. But that was no help. Same problem. As soon as I removed Telstra Air my Glympse app works again.

I'm not discounting the Glympse app may have problems (I've emailed Glympse as well) but I use it much more often than Telstra Air and need it working daily.
