How does MapMyIndia Locate work?
Assume the person whom you want to track has already installed the app. They need a working net connection and built in GPS, if GPS is missing the location will be tracked using cell tower triangulation or Wi-Fi.
User can manually check in or the app will do that after specific interval / distance. It is during this check in process the current location is updated. In case the net is unavailable at that time a cache copy is created and updated as soon as the net connection is back.
