    Hello,

    I am using Autolocation on 3 smartphones to manage tasks on my home automation system.
    On both Android Pie and Oreo, Autolocation is well switching Geofences.
    On the third smartphone, which runs Android Marshmallow, the geofences are not identified.
    Localisation is activated and working well on the phone, if using a place in tasker it works.
    Could you please help ?

    Regards

    Hi. Did you maybe disable something in Google Play Services on that device? Is it rooted?

    Hi
    The phone is not rooted, but what do you mean by disabling something in Google Play Services ?
    The phone is the one of my daughter so I manage her usage using Google Family, may be it generates some disturbance ?

    Thanks. Did you maybe not enable the AutoLocation Geofence Monitor on that particular device?

    Hi,
    I double checked everything and here are the parameters set:
    • Autolocation privileges in Android : Storage and localisation authorized
    • Autolocation "modules" activated : Geofence Monitor and I also tried to activate Location monitor with option "Force Location monitor to help Geofences"
    When I have a look in the logs I have:
    • For Geofence Monitor, I have the log below and nothing more :
      • Added Geofence Toto
      • Added Geofence Titi
      • Added Geofence Tata
      • Starting Geofence Monitor with this input:
    • For Location Monitor, I have a lot of logs based on the movement of the phone.

    Hi All,

    A little UP for this topic. I went a little bit further.
    In tasker I set a profile and task to stop and start Autolocation Geofence monitor every 5 minutes.

    This action forces the refresh of the geofences.

    Could we imagine a problem related to battery optimisation or something like that ?

    I am having the same issue on Android 10 / Pixel 3XL.

    I think that it is more an issue with the autolocation than with the tasker app.

    When in the autolocation app in the geofenced area and yet the autolocation geofense kept claiming I was outside?? This morning, I was at work (35 miles away) and autolocation claimed I was inside.

    Battery optimizations for both are set to not to optimize.

    Hi. Are you maybe stopping the AutoLocation Geofence monitor at some point? I actually use it every day and it works really well for me.
