How long can I run MotionX-GPS before I run out of power?

MotionX-GPS is optimized for minimal power consumption on the iPhone and iPad. Make sure you have selected the Optimized mode under Menu > Multitasking. This mode will continue to record your track or navigate while the app is in the background or when the screen is off.

Power consumption also depends highly on other things running on your device. To maximize battery life turn off wifi, bluetooth and 3G.

You can also reduce the screen brightness to the lowest level for your environment.

MotionX-GPS can also record a track or continue navigation while in the background with the screen off. Taking all these steps can extend battery life to up to 6 hours on the iPhone and 10 hours on the iPad.

See our online tutorial showing step by step instructions on extending your battery life.

Additionally, you may use an external battery pack to extend your iPhone or iPad battery.
Here are the external battery packs we recommend.
