MapmyIndia Intouch will enable the live tracking functionality in your mobile app and allows you to get the powerful features from Intouch IoT platform for your telematics devices. Inotuch SDK for iOS lets you easily add MapmyIndia Telematics cloud services to your own iOS application.

Using this SDK, Your app shall fetch the live location from the end user mobile phone at the predefined condition, It could be based on the movement of the user, or fixed time interval or the combination of both. You can customize the data polling conditions. Along with that you can get the details about your other telematics device live locaion and analytics around that.

Get your Publishable Key.

We use your Publishable key to identify your account details and assign all your users device under single account. to get your publishable Key.

After getting the publishable key, you can start with the IntouchDemo app, or Integrate the Intouch SDK in your app.

Setup a Project

This guide allows you to add a live location tracking to an iOS app.

Xcode IDE recommended Xcode 11.0 only.

Step 1. Download the IntouchDemo App.

to download the IntouchDemo App Project. And then open this project.

NOTE:- This is only applicable in Demo app

Drag and Drop the SampleTest-Bridging.h file (which is provided in the project) to your Briding Header in Build Setting of the project.

Step 2. Set your Publishable key / Project Initiation

Add the publishable key to [My ViewController] file.


For Privacy Policy of Location

Location Permission Map Prompt(Always allow)

For apps granted Always Allow location permissions, iOS 13 will periodically display a “map prompt” The “map prompt” displays the location points collected by the app. In testing, we’ve identified that this prompt will be triggered after 3 consecutive days of background location use, and will continue to appear periodically with continued use.

Add Location permission into your plist file



  1. Add transport security settings Into your plist file.

  2. Add ProviderID(UDID) and token(DeviceToken) to Info.plist file this can be any random value according to your choice.

  3. Run project on your device use simulator instance.

Step 3. Check your location on the Intouch dashboard

Setup a project

  1. Open Xcode Project.

  2. Create a new project as follows:

    • Create New Application
    • Select Single Application
    • Select Next
  3. Enter your app name, project location,Bundle Indentifier language(Swift) and minimum API version as prompted. Then click Next.

After this Xcode will contain two files viewcontroller& Appdelegate, Setting , StartBeacon

  1. Create Setting and Start Beacon Screen Through Storyboard(Reference demo app for this.)

  2. Go to framework and libraries option in General Settings of the project click on embeded and sign-in.

  3. In capabilities go to background mode it should be enabled background fetch,& location updates.

Add following compulsory lines to your applications for Upload app on Store

Drag and drop file in project  to run script in build phase.
File path is ------ bash "yourStripFIlePath/"

APP delegate

Add below function for fetch background data

func  application(_ application: UIApplication,performFetchWithCompletionHandler completionHandler: @escaping (UIBackgroundFetchResult) -> Void) {

Initialize InTouch SDK

Initialize the SDK with your Publishable Key

Add your Publisher key in client Id and Client Secret and add deviceName.

Intouch.shared.intouchInitilization(clientID: "", ClientSecret: "", successResponse: { (Success) in print(Success) }) { (error) in print(error?.localizedDescription) } }

Client ID and Client Secret it will contain the Publisher Key. After Successful get the token we hit the api for create device. after this you get the traking code // set your device name for tracking this device name will be show on Intouch panel.

Create device

After successful API confirmation we get tracking code for Track the location.

You cannot use the MapmyIndia Intouch SDK without these function calls. You will find your keys in your API Dashboard.

There are option to add vehicle Type and Tracking Mode without choose these option tracking will not start.

Location Permission

Add these lines into your Controller file

Import CoreLocation
Import beaconframework

Set delegate UNUserNotificationCenterDelegate private let locationManager = CLLocationManager()

override func viewDidLoad() {
if Intouch().shared.isTrackingEnabled {

locationManager.delegate = self

private func storedAuthorizationStatus() -> CLAuthorizationStatus {
let authorizationStatusRaw = Int32(UserDefaults.standard.integer(forKey: "AuthorizationStatus"))
return CLAuthorizationStatus(rawValue: authorizationStatusRaw) ?? .authorizedAlways

func locationManager(_ manager: CLLocationManager, didChangeAuthorization status: CLAuthorizationStatus) {
switch status {
case .denied:
self.showAlert(status: "Denied", msg: "The user explicitly denied the use of location service for this app or location service are currently disabled in Settings")
case .restricted :
self.showAlert(status: "Restricted", msg: "The user has not yet made a choice regarding whether this app can use location services.")

Call the below method to track your app user's phone live location. Make sure your internet connection will be on that time.


Call the below method to Stop Track your app user's phone live location.

We put these lines for stop beacon tracking and sensors like gyro, aceelerometer., barometer , motion detectors.

option Redirect To Intouch

Set Vehicle type and Priority configration from below code.

 Intouch().IntouchUserGender(gender: "")
Intouch().IntouchVehicleType(vehicleType: "")
Intouch().pollingConfigrationMode(priority: "")
