    Maybe I just lack leadership qualities but using a Galaxy S6 I cant get 'follow me' to work.
    GPS is on wifi and bluetooth off but no joy. Any suggestions please ??

    Yes I think so. It does POI and Course Lock etc. So I imagine it must be a GPS issue.

    Make sure you have a data plan on the device and that GPS is active. If not it will not work. When you press "follow me" do you get an error message, and if so what does it say?

    Android devices have GPS regardless, you're referring to Apple devices. But yes, enabling GPS on the device would be a requirement...

    GPS is enabled.No error message, it lets me set it up but when I press apply it just doesn't follow me.
    I'm going to try it again using a mini Ipad with GPS. Many thanks.
