Did you have a problem logging a track with an app that is compatible with Skitude? If so, we have quite a few options to suggest that could help you solve your problems.

Make sure you’re using the latest version of the app

  • Open Google Play on your mobile and look for the app
  • If there’s a new version available, please update it

Uninstall and reinstall the app

  • Open the “Date and Time” option and make sure the time zone is set correctly.
  • Make sure the option “Automatic date and time” is activated.

Give us permission to access your location

  • Activate localisation for the app. To do so, open the settings on your mobile, select “Localisation”, look for the app and make sure that localisation is activated.

Activate GPS on your device

  • Open the settings on your mobile
  • Select “Localisation”
  • To get more accurate localisation, select the “High precision” option

Reset A-GPS

  • This app lets you configure the best satellites again

Disable battery optimisation and energy savings.

Did the app stop while you were logging a track or did it not log the distance correctly?
