Location of travel friends

With the real-time map function you can see the location of your friends on the page at all times Real-time Map.

This function can also be very useful when you go out alone, and you want someone with access to your username and password from the Sicami Tracks website to be able to see your location at all times.

Share location with Oruxmaps

For your and your friends' location to be visible on the map in real time, you and your friends must use OruxMaps, and it must be configured correctly to share the location with friends. It is the Oruxmaps application that sends your location and that of your friends. Oruxmaps, in addition to sending the location, will receive information about where your friends are and will show it on the screen.

The following link shows how to configure Oruxmaps to share location:

The procedure of adding friends from Oruxmaps is not necessary if it is configured from Sicami as we have explained previously.
