Hi i have the same problem.
The background task is automatically stopped after about 5min…

I have the same issue

please notice that nobody in this thread has provided any code or even said what platform they are having issues with… if you think you have found a bug, please share some information so people can help you :wink:

This is the task that is running in the background but after 5 min or less stop sending location.

TaskManager.defineTask(LOCATION_TASK_NAME,  ({ data, error }) => {

    if (error) {


      // Error occurred - check `error.message` for more details.



    if (data) {

      const { locations } = data;


       LocationAPI.sendCurrentLocation(locations[0].coords).then( res=>{


        console.log("Se esta enviando")



      console.log("en el task")





      // do something with the locations captured in the background
