    Has anyone else used Glympse and found that it shows the persons first location but then gets stuck and doesn't ever update it?

    I've had this a few times now and it's quite irritating and make the feature practically useless.

    When it works, it is great however.

    I've had the same issue. My wife was watching me come home from work, and she called me wanting to know why I stopped half way home....turns out, I was just arriving at home and walking in the door. She exited out and went back in, and it refreshed. This has happened a few times. On 1 occasion, the only way to refresh was for me to stop glympse (expire the time) and re-send. It's an awesome feature, but when I send a glympse to someone, I fully expect it to stay up to date until it expires. This is definitely a bug that needs to be fixed.

    I have experienced it once, but didn't realize that was what happened until I just read this post.

    I sent a few glympses and people have asked what I'm doing in Seattle, because I'm actually in Dublin.

    keep in mind sometimes the GPS signal is lost then the update is lost. tested it several times and it worked fine. When GPS signal is lost it might be good to have something sayin last update 5 minutes ago or something...

    It does say last updated in the drop down. unfortunately, when it gets stuck it just hangs in the same spot and the last updated just increases as you'd expect. It doesn't recover.

    My wife always locks her phone with the top button. We've found that when she does that , her location freezes. When she doesn't press the top button her location is continually updated. We've tried this a few times with the same results.

    Now that's interesting. Can I get someone else to try this?

    I've started it leaving work every day for the last few weeks or so. My wife has reported that it has only worked twice. Every other time it shows me still at work. Pretty disappointing.

    It has never worked for me. The location it shows is always the original location.

    My family has this same problem as well. We have 2 Q10s and 1 Z10 in the house and Glympse probably worked about one time each.

    This is a really disappointing bug. I was hoping to use this feature as a selling point to convince other family/friends to try BBM, but...

    I've reported it to the BBM for Blackberry 10 discussion board under beta zone.

    I don't know where else to report it really.

    I'm surprised this hasn't been addressed by either of them. I know this is just one bug of many that BB10 may have and they can't address them all, but it seems like this affects a lot of people, especially who are on BB10.

    One thing I've observed is that the tracking will stop once we close BBM. Try leave it on active frame.
