Unlike other location apps, Glympse allows you to share your live location with others updated in real time. This means that under normal circumstances, the Glympse app updates your location every 5-10 seconds for the time period you have chosen to share your location.
The Glympse app does, however, require a data connection in order to share your location. The frequency of updates can change depending on network connectivity, battery level, speed and other environmental factors.
Also, to optimize power consumption (and help extend your battery life) Glympse decreases the frequency of location updates when your Glympse is not actively being viewed. When a recipient begins viewing your Glympse again, the Glympse app will begin uploading location points again so that viewers can again see your latest position on the map.
