  1. 我用了它半個月, 我很喜歡它.
    我有一個請求, 希望一打開地圖, 路面情況是中等大的.
    現在第一個路面情況是最小的, 每次要放大5倍, 有點不方便.
    I used it two weeks, I like it.
    I have a request, I hope to open a map, the road condition is medium sized and now the first one is the smallest , each five times to zoom in a bit inconvenient.

  2. 不錯用…還有進步空間 是不錯用,但是還有改進空間………… 被追蹤目標開GPS在室內是無用的…但是在室內開3G無線網路,位置還定不準,差了約1000公尺……在室內開Wi-Fi定位算很好!!……加油!…感謝團隊的努力!! 103/1/2 補充說明: 被追蹤的目標開3G網路時~在戶外位置很準確!!~~讚! 今天(1/20)是怎樣?~系統壞了嗎?~~目標停留在昨天的位置,不然就是找不到目標,不然就是目標又回到昨天的位置~~~真是~亂了!~亂了!~亂了!!!---------今天(1/23)從1/20開始就一直是這樣的情況,~為何都不處理呢??~~本來都很好用,給了5顆星~~現在能改為一顆星嗎???!!!

    1. 您看到對方的位置是對方手機目前即時定位得到的實際位置,位置並沒有被記錄在任何地方,是對方手機app即時傳送給您的,所以對方必須有登入及在線上才能看到其位置,如果對方手機GPS沒有完成定位,就會看到最後一次完成定位的位置,GPS定位需花費時間而且在室內GPS是無法連線衛星定位的,在室內請開啟無線網路使用無線網路定位(,手機定位速度及精準度會根據各手機機型有所不同,若您還有疑問請使用app中的回報功能反映您的問題,謝謝!

    1. 您好,這是您的手機待機時網路被關閉中斷造成無法恢復登入狀態,手機待機時網路斷線問題,請到電池設定中關閉所有省電模式,另外到無線網路進階設定中將"休眠狀態仍保持WLAN連線"設為"永遠連線",您也可以連繫您的手機廠商詢問待機網路自動斷線問題,謝謝!

  8. I cannot permanently delete a contact. After delete I get a request for my ex girl to join my network, which I cancel that request 3 times daily, and it does not matter because she still ends up on my contact list. She cannot follow me since it is set to "no", but it is extremely annoying to have to cancel her request and delete her.
