Hello, guys.
I am experiencing one problem with my HTC 8X with WP8. It seems that my GPS coordinates can only be used by one app. When I try to use 2 apps for my track logging - (like CycleMaster etc.), only one can create gpx file with the GPS data, another app returns the empty track data. When I use one tracking app, it works well but while I am taking photos on my route, the camera app cannot fill GPS coordinates in a file/picture attributes.
Is it a problem of WP8 or HTC 8X? Is there any way to bypass the issue?
Many thanks in advance!

The inability to run two background GPS apps at once (like a track logger + Here Drive) is a platform limitation to keep battery life sane. The thing of not being able to get geotagging in your photos while using a tracking app is very weird though. Either HTC-specific or possibly just an issue with your phone would be my guess...?
