As well as showing a user’s location in real time, Komoots Live Tracking functionality will also show the route a user is following, an expected time of arrival if a course has been loaded and phone battery life level.

The app will show your phone battery life as well as your current location.

Rather than continuously broadcasting for the duration of an activity, Komoot Live Tracking will only update your location when someone is actually watching your feed. This will preserve both phone life and data.

Unlike some of its competitors, Komoot Live Tracking doesn’t appear to have an upper limit on the number of contacts you can broadcast up to at once, with your location accessible via a unique web link.

The feature is only available to Komoot premium subscribers (€59.99 / £59.99 per year).

Strava Beacon offers a broadly similar featureset to Komoot Live Tracking. This is also only available to paid Strava Premium subscribers.
