What are location tracking modes?

We offer 5 modes of location tracking - three default and two based on custom time or distance intervals. They differ based on two factors: frequency of location updates and battery consumption. The higher the frequency, the higher the battery consumption. Based on the use case, different location tracking modes are advised. The types of location tracking are:

Roam.ai utilises a dynamic approach based on the frequency of updates and the way a user is moving. The faster a user is moving, fewer location updates are required to track the path of the user and fewer updates sent to the server, thereby saving significant battery life The table below shows at what distance you will receive a location update depending on the movement of a user and what location tracking mode is being used.
