To enable LIVE tracking of your current position, ENABLE the on/off slider in the system Settings of your phone.
The settings of the app are discussed here.
How to find the settings are discussed in Q8 in the FAQ.
If you want the server to send an email as well when tracking starts, enter that email address. You can add multiple emails, please separate with a comma.
Emails are sparse, you only get an email when your last know position is more that 30 minutes older than the current position.
The server will ONLY save position updates if you are moving. It will ignore any new locations that are within 0.1 NM from your last known position.
NOTE: BreadCrumbs does NOT display anything on the map itself, the idea is to keep others informed of your position. Hopefully you already know where you are!
Hint: Don’t send email to yourself, send it to your significant other. Then they automatically know you are on the move and they can check your position when wanted.
If you are worried about being tracked, please disable this setting, and no tracking will be done.
Once enabled, a new position is sent every 3 minutes to the server.
If you are out of coverage when a new position is sent, it will be saved in memory.
But not to disk! So please let the application run and it will try resending the position when its able to do so. If you kill the application before its able to send the track you will lose that data. Please leave the app running. If in doubt, bring it to front and and it will try resending all data, assuming you have not killed or rebooted your iOS device.
Make sure you tell your friends reload the position URL often, currently the page does not reload.
