Settings - Installed apps (select app by the name "Forest Navigator")

- Battery saver - No restrictions

The navigation function consumes extra energy and the battery may run down faster than you expect. If you often use a cell phone for walking navigation, purchase a model with longer battery life or take an additional power bank. It is a good idea to have a simple button cell phone as a spare. Typically the time of operation of such phones is much longer than modern smartphones.
