    I tried to add the "LocationTracking" to WMAppManifest.xml, but neither the code that I think was shown:

    <BackgroundExecution>
    <ExecutionType Name="LocationTracking" />
    </BackgroundExecution>

    None of the following would work either:

    <BackgroundExecution>
    <ExecutionTypeName="LocationTracking" />
    </BackgroundExecution>

    <ExtendedTask>
    <ExecutionTypeName="LocationTracking" />
    </ExtendedTask>

    <ExtendedTask>
    <ExecutionType Name="LocationTracking" />
    </ExtendedTask>
