Location updates

We currently use a web object that contains some javascript code that constantly checks the location in the background and sends the data back to filemaker go (or FIAS) via the url scheme. See this old thread for more info on the script FMGO 13 , webviewer crashes  (it randomly crashed before IOS 9 but it now works fine)

 

On the first use we'll get 2 authorization requests to access the location.

One for FMGO/FIAS and the other for the actual script.

After that, users will be asked for the authorization (from the script) every 24 hours.

 

Not only that, the script request looks unprofessional

It looks like this

"/" Would Like to use your current location

 

 

I haven't found a way to either modify the "/" in the authorization or to eliminate the daily request completely.

 

Maybe the solution would be to create a module/library in xcode that would take the location in the background and send the info to the bundled sdk database via the url scheme (database is on the device not online). I'm not sure if it's actually possible and how to get started with that option though.

 

Or maybe there is a way to modify the javascript to get a better authorization request.

 

Anyway I would appreciate any suggestion to improve the current system.

It works well but those incessant requests are annoying.
