How to: keep your GPS always on

When delivering, GoPeople needs to track you at all times. To track you, this means you've got to make sure your GPS is turned on. 

Importantly, GPS is used to determine how long you've been in one location, if you're on time (or running early or late) and whether you've followed your route.

So if you wish to raise a Dispute (such as a Waiting Fee or EWT accuracy), you need to have your locations services turned on so we can investigate.

GPS is also used to give you jobs that are closer to you or your home.

If you don't have your GPS on, you might not be able to see any jobs on the 'Jobs' screen on the app.

Apple Users

Alternatively, you can go into 'Settings', select the 'GoPeople' app and make sure 'Location' is always turned. (Also, while we're here, make sure your camera can use the GoPeople app too).
