Welcome to QuoVadis Live!'s Support homepage. If you're a first-timer, QuoVadis Live! might seem strange intially but you'll soon find it easy to use. If you''re an experienced mapper, then you shouldn't be desorientated at all. Either way, you can find answers to all of your QuoVadis Live! questions here.
QuoVadis Live! is an online free service that allows users to fully develop their Situational Awareness or geosense, as we like to call it at QuoVadis Live!, so you immediately know when something that interests you has or is coming up around the place you're at or other places of yours, where and when.
QuoVadis Live! In latin "Quo Vadis" means "where are you going?" and pronounces "kwo-wah-dis". Therefore the question is: "where are you going now?"
Once you've defined geofences depending upon your account settings a notification is sent to you as soon as a contact of yours has reported a geolocation inside one of your geofences or a user has just mapped a geoevent which is to take place in one of these.
Yes it is! QuoVadis Live! is available on any mobile phone that supports internet browsing. Even the most basic ones. You don't need an expensive mobile phone to use QuoVadis Live!
People you are following and that are following you back - friends - can see the portion of your last reported geolocation you allow them to see. Visitors can also see through your user profile page the portion of the last geolocation you've reported and you allow them to see.

Yes! Thus if you're following QuoVadis Live! on Twitter you can be notified via direct messages to your Twitter account whenever a contact of yours is around or a geoevent is coming up in one of your places.

Furthermore QuoVadis Live! can automatically update your Twitter status with your geolocation as soon as you report it and also with any geoevent of yours as soon as you map it!

To map your geotour follow these steps:
Filming Locations is a category for geotours involving the sets of a particular film where each waypoint represents a location where scenes of the movie were shot. A YouTube movie can be attached to each waypoint so the user can watch the part of the movie shot in a specific location.
"Tracks" is for autobiographical geotours in which each waypoint represents a place where events involving the subject of the auotbiography have taken place.
Map legends is a convenient way to have your geotour's locations grouped by types and it enable users to select type of locations they want to see on the map. Furthermore if two or more locations of the same type are very close to each other they're represented on the map as a single marker with the number of grouped locations. This clustering allows an enhanced visibility of the geotour on the map.
For each type of location you define for your geotour, a legend item is created and added to the legend of your geotour map.▲

No. Your geolocation is never sent to Twitter and not shared at all for as long as you want it to be hidden.
The geolocation sent to Twitter depends directly on your geolocation privacy settings. Thus QuoVadis Live! followers see the geolocation as it appears in your user profile page and direct messages sent to contact of yours include the geolocation as only they can see it in Geotracks when logged to QuoVadis Live.

It's part of the authentication process. The only time your status will be updated will be whenever you map a geoevent on QuoVadis Live! and whenever you report your geolocation (if not in hidden mode). We'll also send you direct messages whenever a geovent matching your settings arises. That's all. And by the way, since we've implemented OAuth standards you certainly don't have to give away your Twitter user id and password.
Once you've mapped it your geoevent is immediately published. However if its content is inappropriate, it will be removed by our moderators ASAP. Please remember to read QuoVadis Live! terms of service before mapping any geoevent.
It's because for some reason it couldn't be detected. If you're using Internet Explorer try this: set the Protected Mode off and refresh the page.
