Tracking trigger for Automate or Tasker
« on: February 28, 2018, 09:04:34 »

I'd like to start "Live Location" in Whatsapp or Telegram to a specific contact automatically when I start tracking - ideally only when tracking with a specific tracking profile.

Does anyone know a trigger for tracking with Locus in Automate or Tasker? Or does anyone have a ready to go receipt for this workflow?

Before you ask: I don't want to pay for a live tracking service, which is the reason why I don't want to use Locus Live Tracking (furthermore it didn't work in my test cases).

Good day deelite,
Locus app currently does not support any communication you need for this action, sorry. Interesting is, that this is something I was really thinking about during last week, which is first good step to make it in future.

I think this can be done, but not 100% clear on what you want
ive done soemthing similar
i use tasker to do manual updates and also start live tracking using gyntas c-me server and using tasker

tasker sending automatic telegram is a bit more complicated...

feel free to PM me if you dont want to clutter forum...
