hi.

I have an iPhone with followmee installed and want to turn on full vehicle tracking. The phone will be left in the vehicle and plugged into a switch ignition USB port so it works correctly as and when the vehicle is moving etc.

What I would like to know is what are the minimal settings I need to use on the iPhone for followmee to work correctly. Basically, turn off or disable anything on the iPhone that followmee does not require to use.

Is there a guide somewhere or could you let m know.

Thanks

You need the following iOS settings in order for the app to track in the background.

- Location: always
- Motion & Fitness: enable
- Background App Refresh: enable
- Use Cellular Data: enable

Right now, the tracking is not snap to the road. The tracking is taken place every 1-2 minute when the device is moving. But we will work on the service to allow tracking to snap to the road.

Just a follow on question.

How much data would this use per day / week / month ?

Vehicle gets used from 8am - 6pm everyday.

My carrier hasn''t enabled 4G on my sim card yet and it only seems to be connecting on 3G and the tracking isn''t updating for some reason.

The app uses very little data. Each upload uses 100 bytes. You will expect a few MB each month. You should also update the app to the latest version. The new version v7.0 improved connection with the server.
