According to Apple's docs...

https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/LocationAwarenessPG/CoreLocation/CoreLocation.html

..there are two ways of tracking the user's location while the app is suspended/has been quit in iOS.

1. have live GPS continuously monitor the user's location (e.g. a navigation app).

2. only notify the app when significant location changes occur (e.g. a mile or more). This saves a lot more battery life.

I've been able to successfully get #1 working in Corona SDK (by following this thread http://developer.coronalabs.com/forum/2012/01/17/location-events-background)

But does anyone know if it's possible to implement method 2 in Corona SDK?

Thanks for your help!
