Slopes won't start a recording

If you can't start a recording with Slopes, there are a couple of things that you should check.

Location Permissions

Slopes needs location permissions to be able to use GPS to record your activities. If it's an available option on your phone, we recommend turning on "use precise location" or "high accuracy".

Here's how to make sure that Slopes has location permissions:

  • Go to the Settings app on your device
  • Go to where you can manage location permissions
  • Find Slopes
  • Set your preference

GPS Connection

Slopes needs (good) GPS signal to record your day. If we don't receive any GPS data, or if the quality of the data received is bad, then Slopes cannot record the runs and lifts you did, nor can we calculate speed, distance, vertical etc.

During recording, you'll see a GPS strength indicator in the top left hand corner of the screen. If it's looking weak, give our GPS Tips a run through.

There is a known issue with a number of Android OEMs where the device will restrict apps running in the background in order to save battery. To avoid issues and disappointment, we strongly recommend following the troubleshooting steps specific to your device before recording with Slopes.
