    Outdated Google Play services (Android) 

    Updating your Google Play services through mobile settings can help you resolve the issue.


    OS Location Settings are at Low Accuracy

    When the OS Location Settings are at low accuracy, the GPS can be slower and less accurate in capturing the exact location of the vehicle, to avoid this your OS location settings should be at High Accuracy. 


    Location Permissions disabled 

    Check Motive Driver App Permissions via Phone Settings and make sure Location Permissions are enabled.

    Some other Solutions you can try are;  

    • Device Reboot can also fix some temporary issues with locations not appearing.
    • Log out of the Motive Driver App. Reinstall the App and log back in.
