Hey guys, if you've read my others posts you'll know that I absolutely love this thing. It's really good but there are one or two things that feel unpolished. Today was the first time that I let my phone's battery run out while I was riding. I didn't do it on purpose, it just happened. As soon as the phone turned off, I saw a little bluetooth icon appear on the beeline. Then, a few seconds later, the beeline turned itself off. Is this what is meant to happen?
Since I'm in the middle of a ride, I don't want the beeline to quit on me. If I'm using route mode is it inevitable that this will happen because it always need to be in touch with google maps? Or should it have carried on working? I have auto-reroute turned off, so I would have thought the beeline would have downloaded the route and would carry on working. If not, I'll know that in future I really must keep my phone's battery topped up, but it was a bit of a shock when this happened. Fortunately, I was near the end of my ride and I actually knew where I was going, so it didn't spoil my journey. If I'd been in the middle of nowhere and relying on the beeline, the experience could have been very different!
