When you pay for a subscription, you get the added benefit of viewing the battery settings of your connections. You can see what battery setting they have chosen whether it be real-time, medium, low, very low or plane or car. You will notice this by viewing the color around the user’s profile pic on the map and be sure to click on Active Connections under the Tracking Pulldown. When you click on the users profile, you will see a popup showing the time of their last update. If it is very close to the current time, then you know that is your current location. If it’s not, then you may question their current location.
