Livetracking freezes

UliRad — Apr 29, 2015 03:31PM BST

When I show a friend's livetracking on my browser,
I first see the livetracking icon flashing.
But when the next position data arrives,
the icon stops flashing and the icon does not
move to the new position.
To get the new position I have to renew the map.
I tried all browers - but no difference.
Is there a solution?

Out of interest - what app is the person using for live tracking? Is it OutFront or Endurance?

There is a cut of period of about 60 seconds which is used to determine if a person is still tracking live. If no data is sent with this period then the status changes from tracking to offline.

Thank you Nick for your reply.
Your hint is very helpful.
My friends and I use Oruxmaps
and Oruxmaps sends gps data to MMT
only every 120s.
Jose from OruxMaps will change that to
That will certainly solve the problem.
