I did not try the GPS functions yet, although i had an idea a few years 
ago, but that's already available.

It was to track your own kid with their mobile phone, so it would always 
send out the location, so you know as a parent where he/she is.

Hope you solve your issue.

>>> Typical fitness apps (such as iCardio by FitDigits)  can read various sensors including a Heart Rate Monitor via Bluetooth, and one’s location via inbuilt GPS. When you start an activity like a run or a workout, the app goes through an acquisition phase, and won’t start recording until the sensors are functioning. This is made clear to the user by a display.

I know how to start the location function on the device and I know how to handle the position via ‘locationChanged' and/or ‘mobileCurrentLocation', and these work. The big problem is at the start of such a sequence. I can use 'mobileStartTracking Sensor “location” ’ to get going, but experience shows that this takes an unpredictable amount of time, sometimes of the order of seconds. You would think that the locationChanged messages wouldn’t start firing until the start tracking process had done its job, but it seems this is not so, and nonsense locations can appear at the beginning of the sequence. At least that’s my experience.
