Location Manager User Location Tracking Add-on Description

The User Location Tracking Add-on includes a powerful button that adds your current location to a Google Map managed by CM Location Manager.

The add-on uses the HTML5 Geolocation API, allowing users to share their location from most browsers. If you are a developer, you can create a similar app and hook it to the API.

Logged-in and guest users alike can share their location from multiple sites and all markers can appear on the same map. And there’s no privacy concern – the users must choose to share their location first.


Simple Interface

With a simple button, users can send their geolocation information, along with description. The button is created quickly via a shortcode.

Multiple users can share their location from multiple sites and all markers will be displayed on the map.

The add-on registers every time the user shares their location.

As a result, the map will show not only the user location, but the travel path between positions as well.

The travel line is customizable to fit your site style.
