Useful but doesn't work when locked

I've only used this app once so far but I found it really useful and accurate, it just helped me to feel more confident that I wouldn't get lost so thanks :) The only problem I had was that it stopped giving me instructions when I locked my phone, which was quite impractical. I felt vulnerable holding my phone in my hand whilst walking around because it would be easy for someone to grab so I wanted to lock it and put it in my bag whilst using headphones but when I did it stopped directing me. If this was possible, it would be perfect.
