Able to Geofence without user intervention?

Hi, I am attempting to create a geofencing notification flow where when a user enters and leaves a predefined area a email would be sent. I am able to get everything up except running it, when I try to run the application, the flow checker seems to be fine but there seems to be an error when the flow is not installed. "Flow xxxxxxx cannot be installed" 


Update: The flow now works(using the test button on console) when I remove everything else leaving only the geofencing and an email trigger.  Have yet to move from fenced location, will have to try it out later.

Hi @BinaryPixels 


Let us know the outcome later on, please.

Hi @danielbazetto 
So far I have tried it with the flow app running onscreen with GPS turned on on an Apple device(ios 13.6 ). 
It seems to be only working when the location symbol is filled(i.e when turning on maps and switching back to get a GPS lock). 
Otherwise when the location symbol is hollow, the email does not trigger. 
The location settings for the Flow application is set to Always
