Quote from: alf on February 19, 2017, 12:10:26HelloMany thanks for this live tracking.It is fast (no need to wait a long time between the start of live tracking in Locus) compared to GPSies.A feature that I have been unable to figure out is how to display on the Locus live tracking web page map any information other than the user name (for example the latitude and longitude of the user).As the map doesn't seem to display the coordinate grid, I have not been able to find a way to know the coordinates of the displayed user position.It is highly possible that I am an idiot and cannot figure out how to display the coordinates.But if this is not the case, will it be possible for a future implementation of the web page to display the coordinates when pointing to the position icon ?This will be very useful in the following case:The locus user is considered by the user follower as injured (the follower has no news, the user has not arrived to destination, etc...)The user-follower (wife, son, friend...) is able to use the Locus live tracking web site and see the last known user position on the map.The map doesn't really give a clear and obvious hint about the user coordinates (for example, the user is on an area with little markers like large water body or a vast snow plain).The user-follower wants to give the last known user position coordinates to rescue services,If the user-follower had a displayed grid on the map, or if the latitude and longitude were displayed together with the user name, the user-follower will then be able to give the latitude and longitude of the last user position to the rescue services.Thanks and regardsAlf

My family got iphones, sms is perfect for anti-nerdy family members. App is called DRADIS https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.prototypezero.dradisIts exactly the service for my needs and comes with a handy widget... I would love to see Locus with same functionality!This reply is not meant to promote anything, just own experience about important subject. Just my 5 cent..
