    Default myLocation App in iOS 7
    Can anyone confirm that the myLocation GPS tracking app is actually updating the myLocation.txt file automatically in A7 devices? Or earlier devices for that matter?

    I have SIG CHANGE turned on and when I click MAP and GPS is shows where I am.. But the only way to get the myLocation.txt file to update is to toggle SIG CHANGE off then back on.

    Is anybody getting perfect operation of this tweak on their iPhone 5S?

    But if this thread is permitted to stay - I sure would 'love' an answer to my question rather than all the other 'Off Topic' banter..

    There isn't a specific myLocation thread. Do you mean the GPS weather theme thread? And do you mean the answer to my current question is there? I'm subscribed to that thread and it hasn't been updated since MJ placed her MJWalls announcement in there.. Nothing recent on myLocation there. Last post before MJ's advertisement was June of 2013.

    Honestly I don't really care, but that was/is the main My location thread. The gps weather widget was kinda just an after thought in that process, mylocation was the gem there.

    OT: No, it doesnt look like mylocation file updated by itself for me. I had to open the app again to get it to update.

    Thanks, Simon!! Just wanted to make sure I wasn't alone. Who do we contact about that? Bushe?

    And that other thread hasn't had a substantive post for 7 months. That's why I thought it might be nice to have myLocation in the title of a thread.

    Thanks!

    Crazyvivek was the creator of MyLocation, but it was Bushe that updated it for iOS 6.1.2 if I remember correctly.

    Ah yes.. Now I remember.. Think we can get Bushe to update it for A7?

    After a bunch more testing.. The GPS switch has to be on for it to work along with SIG CHANGE and it will only update when you toggle GPS switch. Toggling SIG CHANGE doesn't update the txt file either.

    RETESTING has confirmed that all that's really needed for myLocation.txt to update on a 5S is a launch then close of the app itself. No toggling of the switches inside necessary. Leave SIG CHANGE on and then just open the app then close it - and the myLocation.txt file will update and update your widget on 5S. Can someone else confirm this?
