Pokemon Go Adventure Sync Not Working Fix

Unable to track your walking milestones? Here's our guide on how to fix the Adventure Sync in Pokemon Go.

Pokemon Go is a mobile game that revolves around catching the wild and wandering Pokemon. But when the game made its debut, it was all about walking miles to catch a certain type of Pokemon. Do you remember when Poke-walks were trending? Thus, sometime later Niantic introduced Adventure Sync. It is a feature that can track your walked distance even when the app is closed. Some players are unable to make it work and for some, it doesn’t track at all. So, here’s our guide on how to fix the Adventure Sync not working in Pokemon Go.

How to Fix Adventure Sync Not Working in Pokemon Go


Since it requires several permissions, there can be many reasons for Adventure Sync to not work. Mentioned below are all the potential methods to fix the Adventure Sync:

For iOS users, follow these steps:


  • Head over to the Settings and select the Privacy option.
  • Select Location services and then, select Pokemon Go.
  • You need to switch the Location permissions to “Always“.

Set the Location to High Accuracy

If your location accuracy is not accurate, it can mess up the Adventure Sync. So, make sure that your Location is set to high accuracy.


Turn Off the Battery Saver Mode

As the Battery saver mode interferes with the location accuracy, we need to switch the mode off. If you are connected with Google Fit or Apple Health, it can cause issues for the Adventure Sync, too.

So, make sure to disable them all. Although make a note that the Battery Saver setting in Pokemon Go does not interfere with the location accuracy.

Set the Date & Time to Automatic

This potential fix has been suggested by several players.

  • Head over to the Settings and select the Date and Time setting.
  • Then, turn on the Set time automatically for Android users.
  • And for iOS users, enable the Set automatically setting.
  • Also, make sure to enable the Set time zone automatically setting.
