I have the android app installed with 300 seconds update frequency, 0 distance and 0 angle. But, the app sends updates randomly and often within seconds, no where near the 5 minutes it should be. In fact, my geocoding hit went through the roof overnight as it had sent nearly 1500 geocode requests.
I've since put the distance limit on the geocode request but the client still sending updates continuously.
Have you looked at the data?
Sorry for the delay.
I cleared out the cache and data on the phone and reinstalled the app.
The app then started working correctly with regard to frequency.
