GeoLocation Sharing
What is GeoLocation Sharing?
Use GeoLocation to share your location with friends or family, or simply track your own location history for later use. Select the groups you currently want to post your location to, set the status message and an optional picture, and tap Start. Now whenever GPSToday gets a GPS fix or you tap "Set As My Location" in the map menu, the location will be posted to the specified groups. All members with permission to view posts in those groups will be able to see your location along with the currently attached picture.
How do I track my location history online without letting anyone else see it?
Make sure to select "Keep History" in the GeoLocation screen, and select to post your location to only one private group which no one else has access to. You can check the subscriber list of a group you own by tapping the Manage-Users button in the group info screen.
Login via your credentials at the desktop geoterrestrial website and open your private group. Click the "History" link next to your location post and select a date range.
How can someone who doesn't have GPSToday see my location?
First you must invite this person to join your private group. Then that user can view your location either at the geoterrestrial website, or by adding your location as a widget to their iGoogle page, or by visiting your universal mylocation url http://www.geoterrestrial.com/mylocation/username
How can someone see my location privately on the web, without having a geoterrestrial account?
Currently this is not possible for security reasons. Users who are not signed-in can only see public information, therefore your location would have to be visible to everyone to allow non-signed-in users to access it.
As a workaround, you can always create an additional username, grant it access to your location, and then send this separate username/password to anyone who wants to see your location. Remember, you can create multiple accounts using the same email address.
