Livetracking sends your positions every 60 seconds to a server and obtains the positions of other pilots 20 km away. Very little data consumption, around 100 KB / hour.
If you want to see a track from another pilot on the map using Livetracking, you can select the pilot in the Livetracking menu. You will get the track from that pilot and its position when the server obtains his data.
You can send messages to other pilots also through the Livetracking menu.
