Playmemories mobile bluetooth location tag don't sync


When using PlayMemories mobile location tag after upgrade to Android 9, my phone Sony XZ1 Compact doesn't recognise the the camera after it has been restarted, when the phone has a black screen. I have to touch the power Button on the phone, then bluetooth contact gets back.

Re: Playmemories mobile bluetooth location tag don't sync

Exactly the same thing is with OnePlus 5 and many other phones.

The app doesn't connect to camera until you wake up the phone.

When the screen is off it doesn't connect. Once you turn on the screen even without unlocking the phone it connects and then stays connected even when the screen goes off.

This crap is totally unusable. Every time you're goinf to take a shot you have to remember to turn on your phone screen.
