Hope everyone just had a wonderful Christmas and will have a prosperous 2018.

In the past few months, we had some changes on the web site.

- If you use our api service to embed your map on your web site, we have added the option for overlaying a kml file on the map. This option allows your map to show your current location together with your predefined route. You will see this option when you use the wizard to set up your shared map.

- An option is also added for enable auto refresh interval on your embedded map.

- In an effort to simplify our pricing model, we have removed the standard edition from the upgrade option. Right now only deluxe edition is available.

- In early 2018, we will convert the perpetual app license model into a subscription based model. We will release more information later on.

Is the subscription monthly, yearly or a lifetime investment?

I currently have 4 paid for licenses.
Are you telling me these will now expire in 2 years time?!?

I didn''t purchase a timelimited license, please reassure me this is not the case.

Wow! Are you kidding me?? So my once paid for license codes which btw is 3 of them, will no longer allow me to track my family unless I sign up for a monthly or yearly subscription! This is BS! And the only reason I chose you over other more reputable tracking providers , was the simple fact I think it’s absolutely ridiculous to pay an ungodly amount of money each month or year for something our phones naturally do to begin with.

The original app license was tied to your device. We cannot keep the original price model forever. We have on-going server related costs and they need to be covered.

For details of this change, see this post.

"Wow! Are you kidding me?? So my once paid for license codes which btw is 3 of them"...

dejaranae, you are not the only one... I paid for 12 devices in advance... some of them still unused.

I promoted followmee after a theft-case, but now I wont do that any more.
After those changes it is too expensive.
In case of theft, there should be some "hidden" tracker.
If stealth mode does not exist any more, then it has no use.

I will not pay every month for 12 devices at home!!!
This is completely stupid.
Then it is cheaper when sometimes a device gets lost or stolen.
Shame!!!

Searching and promoting something else is the only option.
