Can I share my location information with other people?

My daughter and friends are going on a road trip, and we parents want to follow their journey down the coast. I have Automatic Pro. Can the other parents log in to see the trip details if I share my username and password? Can this be done from their phones if they download the app (as I have)?

In the mobile app, load your car, tap the car to get the map view showing its current location (even when parked).

Then tap the blue "SHARE LOCATION" button, then select "Live-Updating Map".. then SHARE.. and you can pick the duration (e.g. 24 hrs).

That will generate a link to show a dynamic real-time map of the car's location. Send this link to the other parents, they won't need to install anything.

Hi Doyle,

Matt is correct about the ability to share the location, but if you want them to be able to see information about where the car is parked, records of the trip, etc., then the other parents would have to download the Automatic app and log in using the same email and password that you do. They will then have access to all the information available.

Perfect - I will probably need to do both of these. Thanks Matt and Derrick!
