Hi all!

So far I definitely have been using Live Tracking with Google Drive successfully  :D
[I've been using this tutorial for setting it up:
http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/manual ... oogle_docs]

Now I receive the information that all gadgets will be deleted in the week of 22.07.2013 !!!

That means not less than that the Map Gadget will be deleted too and I will no longer be able to get a graphic view of my uploaded data.

Regarding the info on Googles Support Site (https://support.google.com/drive/answer ... pic=15165#)
it looks like there should be a way to enable the 'lost' Google Map Gadget in another way!

Please help me in this!
I definitely feel unable to find out how I should do this on my own!
A 'fixed' tutorial on this issue would be most appreciated!  :)

Thanks ringen00

Hello Ringen,
  I'm sorry, I have your email marked since May when it arrives, but I wasn't able to find any solution and I in the end forget to answer. Now you wrote here and also on support email, so I'll follow communication here, because I hope, someone more skilled with these Google docs stuff, will help us :)

  It's generally a problem. When this service is based on using gadgets and Google disable this ability, there is not much other possibilities. Anyway it sounds quite weird, there there will be no possibility to visualize data from spreadsheet into some map view. I personally do not work with Google docs and even manual your used, is updated method from OsmAnd tutorial. So I hope, someone skilled will know best way for this ...

Hi menion!
Thanks so much for your quick reply!
I really do hope that someone finds this tread now2 and can help :-)

What about the original tut from OsmAnd? Won't there be any update?
How do I find the original?  :)

Now they changed their wiki too:
http://code.google.com/p/osmand/wiki/Ho ... neTracking

Unfortunately the given solutions are not helping me in any way (not understandable)!
It looks as if they have just given up on this feature and tell you to set up your own server and stuff . . .

I really do wonder that this amazing feature seems not to be popular enough.

Is it 'enough' for most locus users to save tracks in locus or mytracks?
How do they watch it on a big screen then?

There must be a way to visualize the uploaded data in Google drive!!!
