Best free option

The app makes good compromise between battery life and accuracy. My only complaint is that you cannot remove old users if they change devices before leaving the group. No one has administrative rights, so these old users remain forever. Your only recourse is to form a new group without these old obsolete members, and have everyone migrate to the new group. This needs to be addressed.

Improvements needed but otherwise a good app

Works as supposed to, however, when tracking someone, it only tracks for a seconds until you are required to tap the continue icon. I’d prefer it continually do the live tracking until their destination is reached, without having to tap anything more or at least have this as a option.

Generally helpful

For the most part I can locate those in my group. It does seem certain members of the group frequently have to update their status.
Location timing is often delayed up to 10 minutes and in some areas is less precise than other areas.
