The Automatic App allows users to track a vehicle in real-time, however this information is curiously missing when viewing the Dashboard in a browser. Please add real-time location tracking to the Automatic Dashboard.

How to add the real time location on the dashboard? 
Any idea on how to keep your partner informed with departure and arrival alerts, and driving notifications?

I'm pretty sure the adapter only sends location alerts every 5 minutes. It stores the path of the entire trip locally and will upload it when a trip completes, however during a trip, I'm pretty sure (from what i have seen in diagnostics) that the device only uploads "current location" every 5 minutes (unless speed or breaking events are triggered mid trip)

Thanks for the reply. Any idea on how to add custom locations such as Home, Work, School etc.?

Sure, they have an open API, use that if you want to customize anything above the standard. That's the way I know most of the information I've gathered.

Can you share the API details?
