Support multiple live tracking servers

Now that Locus has its own buddy tracking, it might be a good idea to support multiple live tracking services at the same time. The GUI already allows configuring as many servers as I wish, why the limit to just one at a time?


Example:

1) Locus buddy tracking server for Android buddies travelling with me.

2) My own webpage for friends/family/web&forum crowd.

3) An IPhone compatible live tracking for Apple buddies travelling with me.


All these things could be fed by Locus simultaneously, and I cant really see a reason why not.

I just had exactly the same idea.

This will also include GUI changes... the entries in the live tracking server list need a "running" indicator (checkmark/greenthingy/whatever) that I can simply toggle with a single tap. No more "startup procedure" and annoying errors like http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/live-tracking-startup-procedure-is-very-cumbersome-in-real-life

Totally off-topic, hence inline.


What application do you use for 3)? Or just hypothetical?

Hypothetical so far. IPhone users are more or less fucked, navigationwise. But your server can prepare a simple gpx download link that they can click on and import, at least that works with Galileo iphone app.
