Just another step, if you disappear and open Locus from the background while you have the phone signal you appear again on the map

@lor74cas - I already have set the max 5 minute update.
I can answer my own question now - simply subscribe to premium live tracking. Very cheap. Can have 240 minute or infinite time. @milan.cejnar could promote this fact.

But it is certain that if I lose the signal and then resume it, LT will come back to life?
There is no problem to subscribe to LT premium I aquired a lot of coins I do not use just to support the developers.

@Andrew Heard Thank you for mentioning this, it is true that private groups can set the "time out" to longer time.
But @lor74cas is right, this seems like a bug and increasing the time limit will only mask the problem somehow. I will add to my live tracking issues to solve.

@lor74cas Might only be a bug on the web, will have to try with two phones. The live tracking not reporting any failed transmissions might not be a problem. If there is no connection available Locus will notice this and postpone the attempt until the connection is available. The same should apply with GPS I think, so there should be no attempts to send the position until GPS fix is available.
But I would expect that as soon as a GPS or a connection is available there should be an attempt to synchronize position immediately (if last scheduled attempt had already been missed). So this is definitely not intended behaviour.

Up

If I can't count on the fact that LT works continuously for me this service is not reliable and therefore I can't use it.

@lor74cas Hello, I am sorry about that, I have this problem in my task list but the service seems to be working reliably at the moment and there are no other reports regarding this specific issue. That does not mean anything and I will definitely investigate but I have set it to be a lower priority than some other tasks which is why it is taking a bit longer.

Regarding the problems with new web pages, we actually have problems communicating with our contractor and therefore we are unable to solve it at the moment, but we are very much aware of the situation.

Again, sorry about all the trouble, but I think the core LT functionality is pretty solid although I cannot dispute against that there are some major incoveniences at the moment.

Best regards
Milan
