Can i attach more then one device into one TrackMe account ?
Yes. You can. Login to your selfportal here with login and password from e-mail sent to you. Uncheck "Accept coordinates only from known devices". Install app on your second (third etc) device. Enter the same e-mail as your service login. Start track and locate one ore more geo point. You're done. New device attached to the same account and ready to view and collect tracks. Dont forget to check the switch back to disable free access to your tracks.
How can i change active account on my device ?
If your device authorized for use more then one account, you may switch between them. Just enter another e-mail as account login and press "Enter" on onscreen keyboard. You can track and watch tracks of another account.
How can i inderstand the track is collecting geo points (works good)?
I got to check the way points ("Points") number are greater then cached points ("Cache") and increases while you moves.
Will the waypoints be stored when there is no network?
Yes. The way points are collecting and stored locally on your device until the network gets back. Then all the points will be pushed to the service cloud. It is important to know the cached points are pushed only while tracking active. If you stopped tracking all cached points will be pushed out in the next track session.
Why tracking stops after i switch off the screen of my device?
In most cases the reason is the Android closes the app or stops it. Starting from Android version 5 Google cares energy saving too much. Location detection want you or not is the energy demanding process and requires you include the app into the list of exceptions. Depending on the device model and Anroid version you using the exact path in settings may differ but the options "Background active apps", "Protected apps", "Application permissions", "Sleep mode exceptions" or something like that are defenitly presents in the settings menu. Watch application not required to set anything manually in settings. Only phone or tablet. Anyway it is better to look into you device manual to find appropriate setting to allow the app work in a background.
