i gave the beacon function a try to feel safer when commuting in winter times and i generally liked how it is implemented, but there is one thing which stopped me using it: having to manually send the link every time is just too much fiddling around twice a day.

please add an option for a permanent link which others can use to check out on you or an option to automatically send the beacon link when an activity is being started.

thanks 🙂

I support this 100%

Garmin's activity tracking generates a unique link each time, but can send out emails to people you choose when you begin an activity. I personally find this very annoying and therefor do not use it, I get frequent emails regarding one friends rides which I disregard and delete.

Wahoo on the other hand has a permanent link option, and I find it highly preferable. I believe it is an option to have a permanent one or different one each time.


Agreed, having to send (and start transmitting) every time is counterproductive. Keep It Simple, Sweety!


Simplify beacons



* permalink

* automatic start

* send a beacon after start

I need to click a few extra time before each session, if I restart - send again. This goes against my view on safety. If im late (since im allways are.. click and GO GO GO! A new and unique url for every session is contraproductive.


Nice but not important:

* "realtime" share with friends in the app


I agree with this 100%.
