Default Loss of Escort Live alerts when Galaxy S9 screen turns off


I have a Max360 and a Galaxy S9 that has an issue where if my phone screen turns off, I lose the speed limit sign and advanced warnings other Escort detectors have marked.

When I first got my Max360 with my Note5 this feature would work with the screen off, and I'm pretty sure on my S9 until the latest Escort Live update..This makes me believe an Android system permission for the app isn't set correctly.

It's not really that big of a deal, but I'd rather not run my screen if I don't have to, plus at night it wears on my peripheral vision.

Samsung Galaxy S9 all software kept current (including OS updates)
Escort Live v
Max360 firmware updated about a month ago (I can check the exact version when I get home from work, if that will be helpful)

I skimmed through other posts but didn't see this issue.

Any advice? I'd be happy to provide any information to help solve this.

Thank you!

Android 8 (Oreo) introduced this by reducing how often location services can be accessed by backgrounded apps. One forum member found a way around it.

IMPORTANTLY be aware that neither Escort Inc nor myself endorse or support this workaround.

Awesome, thanks for the unofficial "fix"..

I'm not afraid to experiment, at my own risk.

Thank you for the reply! I'll post back if I have anything noteworthy from the experiments.
