GR III geotagging with a phone


I would like to ask if anyone was able to get geotagging working on GR III reliably.

I don't have the camera but I have K-3 III and the system for geotagging seems the same as it is on GR III.

For me, everything seems fine and it works OK .. but I lose the Bluetooth connection between my camera and my phone every time I turn off the camera while my phone is sleeping. It would not reestablish until I wake up my phone.

So .. I can't just have my phone in my pocket and keep using the camera because if I turn it off or it turns itself off automatically, the GPS info will not be saved because the BT connection drops.

I can't figure it out. I have Samsung S9. Contacting Pentax and the App developer was with no response.

Anyone can share a success story? Can you just go for a walk set up phone-camera connection once and then have your photos geotagged during an extensive period of time, say hours?

Any ideas for how to set this up would be highly appreciated!
