I registered so I could say thank you for this new feature. Once we have the 'Groups' option Locus is perfect.

Great work, all the development is appreciated.

- disabled simplification of icons at low zoom levels
- better refresh of point screen when users location change (still not perfect)
- and some small optimization on background

What about to see also the message by "on hover" or in "pop up"?
Currently we see only the nick and have to tap, to read messages.


For now, we do not need feedback with requests of a new features. Own plans are already defined. When feature became working as we wants, then we may discuss about another improvements.
i know...  ::)

I was also thinking about it, but if this is needed will show time. Because currently you sit home and play with it. It needs to be tested in the field to see if message is really so interesting.

Hi
I know there is a feature request freeze but just to clarify on a planned feature, it would be really good if the simple webpage part didnt require login, or if it could be set to a specific user centered on them, this would be really usefull as currently Gyntas system does this perfectly and as we can only have one livetracking service at a time, i wouldnt be able to change over for daily use untill it does.

Thanks Menion
Al

Q:
Customized live tracking needs a update time X, a moving distance X and a accuracy value to send an successful point.
What conditions are needed in Locus live tracking?

Q:
Quote
we are currently working on an extensions called "Rooms", where only owner of created "room" will define who will be there, so who will see you and other people in same room. This feature will be available to everyone with small monthly fee. Work is in progress, estimate release to public is till end of May if all went well.

1. means LoCoins, right?
2. So, to enter the "room" i will also need PRO AND LoCoins?

1. yep
2. nope. I was thinking about it, but in the end I found it too ... usually known as "milch-cow", which I do not want :). So only user who wants to create and manage private room will need this "paid access". But all invited users should use Locus Map Free without any problems and without payments. So for example only one user in group of friends needs to have Locus Map with this paid access. All other don't have to care about. At least this is a version we are working on it. It may change, but should not.

EDIT: ah, your previous question: you define just a refresh time, because this is only parameter that is considered. Because every refresh means not just a sending location, but also receiving other locations (other users), it needs to be done even if you don't move.

Patience please. "Private rooms" is current task, access to tracking out of Locus as you wants, is next in row.

Could we also request the live positions as a KML? Either for one single user or for a group or room or whatever? Then we could provide simple google earth / google maps / gpsvisualizer / gpsies / godknowswhat links to friends & family... no need for a Locus map web service.
