Route-center (default): we query traffic patterns and directional routes to find the fastest route connecting the submitted coordinates. From this route, we determine a center point on the route. This is our most common method, as it follows roadways, and searches those for locations to meet. This method works best for medium and long distances, but when used for shorter distances (under 15km), it may result in center points avoiding heavy traffic areas, leading to out-of-the-way results.
Geo-center: we find the geo-coordinate between all submitted coordinates. This is useful for finding meeting places within short distances of each other. This method will not always return good results, as the geo-center may be in the middle of a lake, an ocean, or a national park.
Once enough users have invited their friends and colleagues to join the app, we will unlock direct friend-to-friend location sharing, saving you time by removing the need to enter their locations. The Location Visibility setting allows you to determine how friends will see your location.
In your profile, your Location Visibility setting shows how your location would appear to others if Findaspot were being accessed within another app, such as a dating app or a scheduling app.
You may set your Location Visibility to one of three settings:
Hidden - completely hides your location from other people (but not from Findaspot, so you can still use it)
General - represents your location as being away from, but in the vicinity of, your actual location
Specific - shows others your exact GPS location
In the future, your Location Visibilty setting will also apply to how those you connect with directly in the Findaspot app would see your location. Once enough users have invited their friends and colleagues to join the app, we will unlock this direct friend-to-friend location sharing capability.
