Tracking position bike

Hello everybody,

I go in bike alone and I would know if there is any app - possibly open source - that allows to my wife to track my position wherever I am when I’m riding.

Thanks in advance

PhoneTrack works well in combination with a Nextcloud server.

I have been using this successfully to track my devices online and share it for 2 years already.

Telegram has a live location feature.

Whatsapp also has a live location feature.

Gmaps also has one, I think

I don’t know any FOSS alternatives

lol why you guys downvoting me? These are some alternatives which you can use.

Other than the partial open-source Telegram, none of the suggestions you made are even remotely acceptable if you care about privacy. And with Telegram it is unclear what their servers do with the location data.

And yes there are FOSS alternatives that work well and are privacy respecting.

Yes I know they are not privacy friendly. But these are convenient to use. There is also nothing to set up. Setting up a server for running a location tracking app seems like a lot of work. His wife just wants to know his location.

To be fair, OP wasn’t specifically asking for an open- source solution. Providing commercial answers aren’t wrong and is helpful.

A similar question was recently posted on !privacy, maybe it can help you:

Is another open-source solution, albeit more geared towards tracking vehicle fleets.

I think OSMAnd can also track location to a server. At least with Nextcloud PhoneTrack it used to work, but maybe there are other server side implementations of that.
