Thank you for a quick answer💡

yep what @aHVzY2g said. But to elaborate: the ‘free’ map provider plan we are on implicitly does (‘anonymized’) analytics whenever their map pane is on, because of that (and not wanting to mislead people). I disable the map view when you have disabled analytics. That’s what that warning message is saying.

Someday would could either switch to a different map provider or pay for commercial access (which doesn’t do analytics). But someone would need to code this up.

Thank you @aHVzY2g and @geeksville.
However, several problems reported at the time were not resolved.
Now that I know that these are not related to the problem with live map view, we’ll report them on the same topic.

Forgive me if this isn’t the correct thread for this, but the map view would show my devices initially, but they would not update or refresh locations. I had to reboot my Android device in order for it to refresh the location. Is there a manual way in forcing a map location update?

the map view should be updating location periodically when the devices change position. But there is an open bug related to this:
