Would be great if the live tracking was connecting updates into a trail. This way you can see where someone was, which way travelled.

Hi

I also think that this opportunity will increase Live tracking's usability

What about such variants?:

To show a track of selected user/all users for the last period of time

Ideally, to see other user's track that was recorded from moment when this user (not me) started Live tracking.

To add setting "Allow to see my track"

If this functionality is impossible or complicated for development - display arrow from user's label for showing current direction and speed.

After some testing I'm very happy with buddy tracking. Great(!) feature!

And yes, seeing the track of my buddy (buddies) or at least the latest part (some points) would be VERY useful.

Especially when tracking several buddies.

One buddy you can keep in focus and estimate his/her track. But with several buddies this becomes impossible. I know where they are right now but not where they are moving....

Yes, this would enable more control over my lonely bike trips for my wife!

The requested upgrade is similar to the current behavior of GPSies's live tracking website.

They are similar, but I think these two methods have slightly different goals.

Live tracking is good for quick coordination when traveling a group of people on the route. By this reason it's enough to show only last part of a track.

GPSies website is more suitable for viewing and analyzing recorded tracks. They are not convenient to use in motion and with a slow internet.
