Question [Q] "Onguard Weather Alerts" Dynamic Location Broken?

I came to the S5 from a rooted CM11 Galaxy Nexus. On that device I was using Onguard Weather Alerts for severe weather notifications. It seems that it does not work on my S5 for the "Dynamic Locations". It works just fine and as expected if I specify a static location or locations.

Has anyone noted any issues with dynamic locations/follow me settings in background apps? If you found the issue, what was it?

(Location services is on, and set to high accuracy. Foreground apps seem to be able to use dynamic locations/follow me without issue.)
Currently using a VZW Samsung Galaxy S5 and a WiFi-Only Xoom (and an employer provided iPad)

I can't answer your problem, but I can tell you that Onguard stopped working properly a long time ago. I am a SkyWarn weather spotter in Missouri, and I would not recommend using this app to save your life in severe weather. I recommend signing up for severe weather alert texts from your local National Weather Service office, as well as text alerts from your local tv news station if available.
