I did have my phone on standby, but that shouldn't matter, right?

Having the phone locked or in stand by avoid it from accesing to the GPS data. The same happens to Google Maps, if you have a GPS location and you lock the phone you will see as soon as you unlocked it it will be in cell location mode.
So I recommend not locking the phone though I know sometimes that's a must.

I used this apps the day before yesterday to save my car location while I was doing a walk around downtown and I worked great when I wanted to go back to the car.
