Android Overlays Issues:

Certain Android operating systems (Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, etc.) have settings that restrict smartphone functionality to save battery or limit memory usage. However, these restrictions can affect the proper operation of Geovelo.

Please check the following points in your settings: (Menu titles or paths may vary depending on the brands)

- Location Permissions

Go to Settings > Applications > Geovelo > Permission > Location.
Ensure that the "Always allow" option is active here.

- Battery Usage

Go to Settings > Applications > Geovelo > Battery or Battery Usage.

Ensure that the "No restrictions" option is active, or that the application is not on the list of optimized applications for your smartphone.


- Go to your smartphone's settings, then to battery, battery settings, and deactivate the "Background power-intensive applications" option.

- Check the battery optimization settings.
Go to Settings > Applications > Menu (⁝) > Special Access > Optimize Battery and make sure that Geovelo is not one of the optimized applications.


The same issues can be present on Xiaomi phones. In addition to the previous points, go to your settings > Security > Manage apps > Geovelo and choose "Do not restrict."
