Dump1090 Export

1. Don’t kill my APP

Before we start to explain the different export possibilities please read this first

If you want to use the export function, you probably just put Dump1090 in background and switch your screen off.
Since Android 6 – Google introduces Battery Optimization policy.
When you start Dump1090 you will see two notifications that the Driver ( RTL-SDR Driver) and Dump1090 runs – that meet’s Google Policy to inform user that a APP is still running in background.

Unfortunately some tablet / phone manufacturer have a very strict battery saving policy which even breaks Android specifications. For example they just kill a App running not in visible foreground after x minutes.

To prevent that, you normally have to add BOTH apps on the Battery Optimization Whitelist (not optimized).
