FM Go 16 Location Services broken

Has anyone else managed to get Location Services to work with FM Go 16?
With earlier versions it was simply a matter of enabling it on the device by going to Settings->Filemaker Go->Location, and allow location access "While Using the App"

This option has disappeared in version 16.

Consequently the script step 'Location ( 100 ; 40)' fails.

Also I get access denied error (code 2) if I try to get a location from within my web viewer window using the following Javascript:

window.navigator.geolocation.watchPosition(updateLocationPin, watchPositionError);

I've tried it on two iPads, with the same results.

My current thinking is that the FM Go dev team forgot to add Location Services to the required capabilities when compiling the app for the App Store.
On the other hand it may just be me and a stupid RTFM issue. ( I hope so as that would be a quick fix).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Barry.
