Glympse like functionality?

Postby dmtalon » Fri Mar 02, 2012 6:48 pm

Is there any live tracking URL you can give out to friends/family while using Waze? I'm torn between the two, I like to send my wife Glympse's when I'm heading home, but at the same time I want to use Waze :-)

I could possibly keep both going, but that seems like an extremely battery hungry solution.

Thanks for the replies... I voted on a similar idea someone else already posted.

P.S. I'm on an Android device. (updating my sig)

Right, not blaming the app, just its associated requirements are battery hungry

Most of the battery goes to keeping the screen on and the GPS and data connection. The app itself does not take that much battery. Running both apps at the same time will run it down only slightly faster.

It's been requested, but at the moment they are working with stability of the base product, especially the map refreshes.

It probably is already on their, but you can make an official suggestion (or add a vote to one if already there) at the uservoice linked in my sig.
