    Motion X Issue.

    I've been tracking rides successfully for years using an iPhone 4 and Motion X. Now with iOS 7 installed, I'm having issues. If I do get a track of the trail, it's very truncated, or maybe just the first 3/4 of a mile, or nothing at all. The only thing that has changed in iOS 7, and whatever ever update Motion X did for iOS 7. Any suggestions to make Motion X work correctly?

    I have since tried a reinstall of Motion X and that did nothing to fix the issue. I also haven't been able to get Runtastic to work. However Waze works fine for me, it just isn't a tracking app.

    This is what I got from motionx support: " Can you please confirm that from Menu > Setup > Multitasking, MotionX-GPS is set to Optimized or Always On?
    Additionally, if using iOS 7 could you please check that Background App Refresh is enabled. This can be done from your iPhone's Settings > General > Background App Refresh. Please ensure Background App Refresh is On and the switch for MotionX is also enabled."

    I thought that I had tried leaving Background App Refresh on, but I'm not sure. It does dramatically decrease my battery life when I leave it on.

    There's a few things that I like about iOS 7, but they sure Microsofted all the settings.

    My Motion X has worked on my last 2 rides. I'm not sure what setting change did the trick, but I have it working now.
