Starting 2020 inline skating activities we will have a easier way to meetup, follow and join along the way as we skate with a GPS service I will make available for anyone that will want to use, see, track and share their real time with friends, family and or other inline skaters which is perfect for organizers of the group.

Self-hosted real-time location sharing

Hauk­

Lets you share your location in real-time with friends and family for a specified period of time. Meeting up with someone? Send them a Hauk­ link, and they can follow your location live on a map until you arrive to meet them.

Hauk­ is a free opensource private gps application that respects your privacy and the server is privately owned. It does not share your location data to anywhere except the server you specify within the app. It also lets you share in a group so that unique link can be used by a group of people once the group uses the group PIN join in.

A unique random link will be generated for your location share when you start sharing; anyone with this link will be able to see your location in real-time for as long as you are sharing.

Hauk­ does NOT require emails, phone numbers, sms, or use or other applications such as telegram, whatsapp, meetup, facebook and similar in order to work.

Downloads

Download: Here­, F-Droid app store or google play app store.

If you'd like to see what Hauk­ can do, download the app and insert connection details for the demo server and test for 2 minutes meant for demonstration purposes.

Donations

These projects are all ad-free and I do not earn any kind of money during the hours we spend developing them. Donations mean a lot to us because they help fund costs associated with the websites, and because they serve as an incentive to further work on more projects of your interest.

App permissions

  • Permissions
  • Access precise location only in the foreground
  • This app can get your exact location only when it is in the foreground. These location services must be turned on and available on your phone for the app to be able to use them. This may increase battery consumption.
  • Run foreground service
  • Allows the app to make use of foreground services.
  • Have full network access
  • Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.
