Position lock disappears when the screen is locked [not relevant]

I decided to test the voice navigation in Pure Maps while walking. It turned out, that it won't update position when the screen is locked. Initially I thought that's a problem with the application, but further investigation revealed that every time the screen is locked and unlocked, the position lock has to be acquired again.

It looks like the position lock is lost when the device screen is locked.

I'm not sure if it's a bug or expected behaviour, but there should be at least a way to allow position lock while on lockscreen, so I'm tagging this with both bug and feature request.

Tested on Xperia XA2 Plus (dual sim), with all positioning options enabled.

I just tested with some other application, and the position lock is active while screen is locked. Indeed it seems the problem is with the application. I'm closing this question then. Thanks for the information!
