Amigos is a function based on the location of contacts allowing the user to see the positions of his friends on the map in real time (and vice versa) and interact with them while using the TwoNav and Land App softwares, which include this functionality.
• Locate your contacts on the map: Once your friend requests have been accepted you will be able to see on the map and in real time the locations of your contacts and the tracks they are navigating at this moment. You will also be able to define the data update interval (if the interval is greater, your movements and those of your contacts on the map will be updated more frequently).
• Navigate to any contact: Find the friend you want to reach, open the context menu of the contact and select 'Navigate...' (TwoNav) or ‘Go to…’ (Land).
• Chat with your contacts: Talk to your friends to discuss the adventure, open the contextual menu of the contact and select the 'Chat' option.
• Share files with your contacts: Share the files you want with your contacts, you can send them an activity you have done, a new route to follow, a Waypoint with a point of interest...
