I have an active2 and s21 ultra. If I use Google maps to navigate and use navigate pro on my watch, the watch stops updating after about 3-4 minutes until I open the phone. I've turned off battery optimization on maps but no luck. Any tips?

What phone model, software version (Settings > About Phone > Software Information > Build Number [last 4 characters]), and mobile carrier do you have?

Compatibility with other apps, particularly the active2. Not interested in changing apps. Plus this seems to be an issue with the GPS service so it's unlikely this would resolve it.
