GPS on for Navigation only

This project consists of one event that triggers based on the Maps/Navigation app being open.

For this to work, you must have accessibility enabled for Tasker.

When triggered, Location Services and GPS are enabled. When the app closes or is no longer in the foreground, the exit task fires. The exit task checks to see if the Location Consent, Settings, Navigation or Maps window are still present. If any of these are, the GPS will NOT be disabled. This is done to prevent the GPS from disabling while you might still want it open.
