The most sophisticated, battery-conscious background location-tracking & geofencing SDK for iOS and AndroidBuy Now
A highly configurable, cross-platform background location-tracking plugin implementing the latest native APIs. Backed by over four years of R&D and constant support, the plugin performs in a wide variety of applications, such as fleet-tracking, fitness, security and emergency / disaster-responseRead our docs
The plugin samples the accelerometer periodically while tracking in order to power-down the GPS as soon as the device is determined to be stationary, while stopped at a traffic light, for example.
Background Geolocation's geofencing system is the most advanced available, allowing you to monitor unlimited Geofences! Geofences can fire on ENTER, EXIT and DWELL transitions and can optionally persist on device reboot or application terminate.Read our docs
The plugin can be configured to automatically start and stop tracking using a simple cron-like format. The scheduler can be configured to start on device boot.Read our docs
iOS is far more strict than Android with apps running in the background. When your iOS app isn't currently requesting continuous location-updates, iOS will immediately put your app to sleep. However, the iOS Background Geolocation plugin has a clever and acceptable mechanism to keep your app running in the background, 24 hours-a-day without engaging continuous location-updates.Read our docs
Background Geolocation performs well in a variety of environments. During June 2016, we took an Android Nexus 5 & iPhone 6s, both loaded up with the Demo App, for a two-week circumnavigation of the island of Iceland, where the plugin performed marvellously in a variety of environments from mountains to desolate emptiness.Browse Map of Iceland
HTTP & Persistence: The plugin persists every location it records into a SQLite database and optionally transmits to your server with its own configurable native HTTP service.
Scheduling: The plugin can be configured with a cron-like schedule to automatically start / stop tracking for any particular period.
Motion Activity Recognition: The plugin records the device's "motion activity" and appends this meta-data to each location it records (eg: "on_foot", "in_vehicle", "on_bicycle", "still", "running")
stopOnTerminate, startOnBoot: The plugin can be configured to continue tracking even if the user reboots the device or terminates the application.
Each key is bound to a single application identifier and valid for unlimited devices.Eg:
