Livre Tracking, buddy walking nearby does not see my live position in LocusMap screen
Me and my buddy tried out Live Tracking today. The setup is:
- Both use Locus Map Pro 3.39.4, Android Pie
- Both have data on, internet working correctly in the area
- Use the same route
- I enabled Live Tracking (Public group)
- My buddy doesn't enabled Live Tracking
During the hike, I can see my shared position in my own LocusMap screen. However my buddy doesn't see my position in his LocusMap screen. If one of us get lost, my buddy would not know where I am located.
I did see myself in https://live-tracking.locusmap.app/online-trackers/ using the browser. But without the route that I am following.
Google map "Location sharing" could do the same in better (private recipients, time limit, link to access the buddy position).
I would expect that Locus Map would show the live position of the buddy directly on the Locus Map screen. What are the advantages of Locus Live Tracking over Google map Location sharing?
