No lines displayed on map


I’ve recently installed the NC PhoneTrack app in my self-hosted NC16. I’m using the PhoneTrack Android app for logging, and it seems to work very well.

However, I’m only seeing the current position of my device on the map (in the browser), but no lines (past positions). I toggled lines to “on” in the session config and activated “Show lines” in the options.

Is there anything else I have to do to make this work? Statistics say I have around 100 points, and it gives me avg speed and max speed, but no distance and duration. Is this perhaps related?

It’s probably a PEBKAC issue :wink: But I couldn’t find anything in the docs or this forum that helps me solve it.

Regards and thanks for this otherwise great app!

Meanwhile, I had upgraded to NC 17, but the problem was still persisted. :neutral_face:

So I started fiddling with the options both client and server side. Turns out that if I set the update interval in the Phonetrack Android app to < 60s (using 20s for now) and enable “GPS always on”, I get not only dots, but also lines on my map in the Phonetrack server app. :+1:

I’m not yet sure if the requests are different or sth. happens in the NC app. I’ve installed NC locally to debug the issue but haven’t found the time to do so.

I’ll update this thread if I find sth.

Ok, I probably found the solution: My (the default?) cutdistance and cuttime settings were too low. Or was I riding too fast? :wink:

I was not aware that the minimum distance related to the track lines display on the map. Now I set both values to very high values, and my tracks/lines are displayed.
