Not reliable

If i compare my location using this app and a similar app this app shows me drifting and waypoints not recognized. Documentation needs focus. Its a great effort and i want to support this project. Perhaps i didnt set up my backend correctly. i tried the containerized recorder and mosquitto made by this author of this app as well as mosquitto broker in the standard ubuntu repos. lots of quirks along the way but eventually got to see two phones on the map. I get badge notifications on the icon of my app but cant find any notifications in the app when i launch. So though maybe i am close to my goal and missing something i am tired of trying any further.

Not relisble

Tried both the GPS geo fencing feature as well as the beacon. Nothing works reliably.
For example I hold my iPhone and set a geo fence center based on current location. I move around few minutes later come back to the same spot and it is not within the geo fence anymore.
Struggled with this app for 2 months and giving up.
