Does Locus have any offline communication scheme?
« on: March 15, 2022, 17:32:31 »
Hi,
There may be no cellular signal when we do outdoor activities.
But I still look forward to we can see each other on Locus.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks.

That is nothing Locus can realisticly do.
But there is Briar, which connects Smartphones by WiFi and BT - as long as they are in range of each other, including daisy-chaining.
Yet mind - a smartphone, regardless of app, is not a cellular tower :-)

There are also existing methods how to enable communication over the LoRa system, like here, but as far as I know, no "Ready to use" solution so far ...
