Before I go and pay for FollowMee, I want to be sure it''s working. It seems to hardly be able to track.

Looking at the app, there it''s almost a continual steam of "GPS location not available" and "Network Location timeout".

I have another gps app that works fine on the phone, but the track is only kept local on the phone. This one is the one I want so locations can be uploaded real-time and tracked. But if it does not work, it''s not worth a penny.

Any ideas? Is there some settings preventing it from access network or GPS information? I''ve even turned up the Satellite timeout to 3 minutes.

Make sure that the app works before pay for the upgrade.

The app for Blackberry 10 is ported from Android. The Android runtime in Blackberry 10 is very buggy and limited. This deeply limits the function of the app. Hopefully these problems will go away once Blackberry update their Anroid runtime in Blackberry 10.

yea... I''ve deleted it now. It''s a useless piece of crap on the BB in it''s current state. Went on an 8-hour, 500km trip yesterday, and it logged 3 way points.

I also have the same problem on my Z10 (v 10.2.1.2977). If the phone is on everything works fine, but as soon as the screen goes off, it stops updating the location and the app logs "GPS location not available" and "Network location timeout" errors.

Would be really great if some solution would be found for this, either from FollowMee or BB, as this app seems to be really useful otherwise.

Is this a Verizon Z10? For some reason, the app does not work in the background.
