Sophisticated, battery-conscious background-geolocation with motion-detection.
The most sophisticated background location-tracking & geofencing module with battery-conscious motion-detection intelligence for iOS and Android.
The plugin's Philosophy of Operation is to use motion-detection APIs (using accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer) to detect when the device is moving and stationary.
When the device is detected to be moving, the plugin will automatically start recording a location according to the configured distanceFilter (meters).
When the device is detected be stationary, the plugin will automatically turn off location-services to conserve energy.
Also available for Cordova, NativeScript and pure native apps.
The Android module requires purchasing a license. However, it will work for DEBUG builds. It will not work with RELEASE builds without purchasing a license.
(2018) This plugin is supported full-time and field-tested daily since 2013.
