Locus Map free v4: Synchronize Tracks with cloud. Which Cloud?

Is this the cloud of the google profile ? Or is it a Locus specific cloud ? I guess its the google Cloud.


We use Locus for our Rescue Team.

If we use the same Google-Account on 4 Android Devices , Is it then possible to synchronize tracks and points between this devices ?


Ok, maybe its better to share Necessary tracks manually. So that the Tracks can be modified/corrected.


My task is to share Regions which have been searched for missed persons...


Any Ideas which is Best way?


I would say: to see where others are NOW, use Livetracking.

And Additionaly the Group Leader shares The searched Region as closed Tracks in a .kml File.

Kml because Waypoints and Photos can be saved and shared in one File.

Also thinking about Locus API and an additional tool to manage some Tasks. Is there a collection of Commandos, which Locus API can handle ?

Hi Markus,

for the synchronization, Locus Map 4 uses its own specific cloud.

"If we use the same Google-Account on 4 Android Devices, Is it then possible to synchronize tracks and points between these devices ?!

- yes. Any change or edit is synced so if you prefer the possibility of independent track edits on particular devices, manual sharing is the better option. I think your workflow is ideal for this usecase.

Thanks. And yes i like Locus Map 4. Looks like faster Map handling. And its working, no need to stay at LocusMap Pro. I will share a question about special Abo for Resque Teams.
