Location Share+ enables you to automatically share your location with up to five (5) check-in contacts on a selectable interval from every 6 minutes to 4 hours. You and your check-in recipients will be able to use the free ZOLEO app to view the most recently reported location and breadcrumb trail on a map (provided by Mapbox Outdoors).
