I set up a custom live tracking service for Locus.
It can be accessed at
Let me know if there is any issue with it!
It seems that the latitude/longitude parameters are mandatory when creating a custom live tracking; I think it would be very useful to let create "view only" live trackings to see the positions / traces of other people without transmitting your own position. When these parameters are omitted, of course the minimal distance and accuracy should be ignored, and the absence of movement or disabling the GPS should not prevent live tracking to work.
I have not tried to see if the server can return a kml/kmz file, instead of a gpx?
Also, I did not find a way to rename a live tracking setting.
Finally, maybe some parameters could be set to be sent only when starting or stopping the tracking, and not for scheduled connections; this would allow to differentiate someone who stopped tracking non-voluntarily (no battery, no signal...) or voluntarily, or to purge previous positions.

I have set up a live tracking CGI on my server, but instructing my friends how to configure it in Locus is complicated (with all the parameters to the URL etc).
Would it be possible to support an action URL, like for downloading offline maps, so I can send my friend an URL to click to configure live tracking with all my custom parameters? (Locus Map Classic)
