Admin should provide correct Host URL which can be found in Admin -> Settings -> Mobile Apps section. Each symbols matters, including last slash symbol ” / “, otherwise connection will not be possible.
When this message is display, please ensure battery saving mode is disabled as it might cause connection problems with the server.
In case the SSL certificate is installed on your server, please make sure it is installed correctly and it is not returning a warning message saying that the connection is insecure.
This is cause by driver phone being set to battery saving mode which deactivates GPS feature which is required to obtain driver’s current location.
The system saves last received driver location, so if your driver battery goes into saving mode it will display last available location but from that point doesn’t receive information thus showing driver not moving on map.
If you see this error message “You must have a driver account to use this mobile app!” when login to driver app that means you are using wrong account type. The driver app was designed with driver in mind so only driver type accounts can use it. Admin can access his account by using internet browser e.g. Google Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari etc. To create new or manage existing driver accounts go to Users -> Drivers tab.
