Android phone with Offtime app - reasonable to expect geo-location to work too?

Are there people out there who have the Offtime app or something similar on their child's phone? I find it works great for restricting his usage, but ever since I installed it, the Friend Locator (Life 360) app that we use within the family for tracking each other has stopped working. It works ok on Wifi, but not on data. That means if he's late home I can no longer see where he is, etc. I've gone through all the online trouble-shooting, but nothing works. I've installed an alternative tracker, but that didn't work either.

So, I just want to know if anyone has these two apps, or similar apps, working successfully together? I'll switch apps if necessary - I just want something that works as well as Offtime does for managing phone usage, and also lets me see where my son is.
