We have released a new version of the GPS tracker mobile app for iOS. One noted change is that the new version requires motion and fitness permission. This permission is required for the app to detect if the device is moving or stationary. When the device is moving, the app starts to track. When stationary, the app sleeps to preserve battery. When the app updates to this version, this process might be unattended.  In this case, the app has not been granted the permission. You need to open the app and press the Yes button to grant the permission. Or you can grant the permission manually on Settings app -> FollowMee -> Motion & Fitness.
 
The new version simplifies the app settings. It removes track interval and other settings. It adds a new tracking power setting. The default setting is medium, which gives you a new location update every 5 to 10 minutes. If you want more frequent update, choose the high setting, which updates every 1 to 2 minutes. 

If you have updated your device to iOS 11, Previous versions of FollowMee might become unreliable in iOS 11. You should update the FollowMee app to this version.

Thank you for all your support.

You cannot use the remote control service to enable motion and fitness. This is the phone setting. You need to do it on the phone locally. You can grant the permission manually on Settings app -> FollowMee -> Motion & Fitness.

I think next time you have any new released, it''s better to communicate with user more (may be email too). I almost had a fight with my gf. It''s quite sensitive dude.

Hi - I''m finding that it''s not triggering my geofence for 7-10 minutes afterward. How is motion triggered? I have tracking power set to high. Anything I''m missing? I leave my house and the app doesn''t update for 7-10 minutes....

Thanks.

We will have a new version for iOS coming out in the next few days. This version will improve the tracking performance. Watch for v5.2.
