Location information can be shared with other users on the logging screen.
Free users can also use this function, with some restrictions.

Paid users can create their own location sharing rooms.

As shown in the image above, the location of the shared user is indicated by a pin icon.

When you tap another user’s pin, the user name, date and time will be displayed.
If the user has not set a user name, “null” will be displayed.

For paid users, location information is updated in real time when other users upload their location information to the server.
Free users will be updated with other users’ location information at set intervals.
Free users are limited in the intervals they can set.

* Upload intervals to the server are approximate.

The “Delete” button (4) deletes a room that has already been created.

You can set your own room as the room to be shared by clicking the “Set to Share” button (5).

Location Sharing Notes

  • There is a limit to the number of users who can share a location at one time. (30 users excluding the room creator)
  • Depending on the user’s operating conditions, location information may remain even though it is not actually shared. (The number of people counts.)
  • Once a shared room is created, it can be used as long as it is not deleted.
  • The interval for uploading location information to the server is a rough estimate. It may be delayed due to communication conditions.
