Location sharing for the app doesn't work
The app tells me that I don't share the location. However Iphone settings don’t even have the ability to share a location for this app. IPhone and application software updates are up to date.
Developer Response ,
Hi hjjfddjnmm, thank you for your feedback. After you connected your Hövding to the app, open the apps menu (bottom right) and go to ‘App settings > Data sharing’. Make sure that ‘Location’ is set to ON, then tap ‘Save’. Tap ‘Go to settings’ and make sure that 'Bluetooth', 'Background App Refresh' and 'Mobile Data' is ON. Then tap 'Location' and choose 'Always'. If you have updated to iOS 14, also make sure that 'Precise Location' is ON. Ride safe!
