Thank you for your further information. iPhone appears not having a similar ECO mode for Camera Connect App and does not show up in the background app list. iPhone would go to Low Power Mode when the battery is down to 20%. I have restarted my iPhone once recently, it seems to perform better. When I walked on two parks recently, I have got a few pictures very close to the correct location (normally just after activating the app), and many other pictures are lumped into one location (so the error can as large as 500m).

Not sure but I suspect that Chris might have been referring to the Eco mode on the camera, not on the phone.


Andy, correct! I was referring to Eco mode on the camera.
