I often loose time when meeting my friend in new places, because it is hard to pinpoint a particular meeting place:
I am at the bus stop!
But I can't see you!?
etc for 5 minutes
Is there an app that both of us could run when we want to find each other?
It could probably use the GPS and possibly some other tricks.
- Open source (I don't trust proprietary apps with my location)
- Shows me the distance that separates me from my friend, and the direction
- My friend also sees the same thing towards me
- Show both our positions on a map in real time, ideally using local OsmAnd maps rather than downloading maps via the network
- Insert bookmarks, for instance "Tomorrow's picnic: we will sit here"
- Share a bookmark or your location with several friends
