The Arccos Caddie app should use between 40-60 percent of your battery during an 18-hole round (older devices, and older operating systems may use more). Samsung brand devices tend to use more battery than other brands especially the Samsung S7.
Battery use is also dependent on the phone and integrity of the battery itself, as well as the length of the round.
If you are experiencing difficulties getting through an entire round without exhausting your phone’s battery, it could be because other apps are also running simultaneously. Closing other apps that you are not using can significantly improve battery life. To do so hit the apps button on the bottom toolbar and swipe through all of the apps you want to close.
Some other tips for Android devices are:
- Try turning off mobile data (DO NOT put the phone in airplane mode or Low Power Mode, as your GPS in the phone will not work properly)
- Turn off WiFi
- Turn on Do Not Disturb
- Turn off bluetooth (only if you have all second generation sensors)
- Screen brightness and length of time the screen is on can have a large impact on battery. Try lowering the brightness and screen timeout to the lowest acceptable values for both.
