If you do not see the location marker appear on your mobile device, be sure to wait for at least 10 seconds timer.jpg with the app open to allow the beacon within the service to interact with your device. For best results, launch the Xplor app and leave it open to speed up the connection

If the icon still does not appear, here are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot:

 Bluetooth and Location Services

Ensure both Bluetooth and Location Services are switched on
The Bluetooth beacons located at the service requires these 2 settings to be enabled to interact with your mobile device.

iOS
Settings > Bluetooth
Settings > Privacy > Location Services > On
Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Xplor > Always / When Using
Note: Be sure to also allow permissions for the Xplor app to use location services

Android
Settings > Bluetooth
Settings > Location > On
Settings > Apps > Xplor > Permissions > Location > On
Note: Be sure to also allow permissions for the Xplor app to use location services

Why Bluetooth and Location Services?

Xplor uses beacons within the service. When your smartphone is in range of the Xplor beacons they receive signals and you are sent a push notification to sign in or out. 

With your permission, 'Location Services' allows Xplor to use your smartphones' bluetooth feature to determine your approximate location to your childcare service.

This ensures that you cannot sign in or out remotely and must be at the service to do so.
