    I want to run a dash cam (running at the background), and using multi window to run GPS app (Maps) and another app.

    Would running 3 apps at the same time be fine?

    If you can make it work the only problem would be heavy drain on the battery. Plan on leaving the charger plugged in to run it for very long.

    You can run multi applications at the same time. Settings -> Device -> Multi window.
    But as Crashdamage said, it would be heavy drain on the battery. :oops:

    I'm pretty sure it's a Samsung thing in general… my S4 had it.

    A similar thing can be accomplished on just about any device with root and the Xposed XHalo FloatingWindow module.
