Currently confused about implementing the geofence plugin …
Maybe I’m just missing the obvious, but I thought that the geofence plugin worked all of the time as a standalone? Whatever I try it always needs something like Google Maps to be actively monitoring the device location, in which case my notifications are sent. Without this I get nothing.
Perhaps it’s so obvious that there’s no need for this to be in the documentation?
So. Do I also have to have the geolocation plugin actively watching the device location in order for the geofence plugin to know when a geofence boundary has been crossed? Does the geofence plugin not watch the location itself? Or maybe this is a quirk of emulators (both Android and IOS). I get the same thing on a real IOS device when tethered and using the ‘debug’ menu in Xcode to fake the location.
Hopefully someone can just clear my confusion up for me. If I have to have the geolocation plugin active (and I guess background-geolocation for when the app is in the background) in order for the geofence plugin to detect when a boundary is crossed then so be it. It’s just that the documentation makes no mention of this and seems to indicate that there are no additional requirements other than itself.
