I have long been a user of the Livetracking feature and have it paired with Strava Beacon. When I start a run, it automatically starts the livetracking and I get a notification that the livetracking has started, I also see that Strava Beacon gets sent out. However, Garmin connect never actually sends any location data so my wife can't track me. In Strava it says the user hasn't started the activity, in Garmin it shows a map and says no location data sent.
Garmin Connect has all permissions (location, sms, phone, etc.), the battery is not optimized (can run in the background), and it has background data permissions. I've gone over every setting for livetracking inside of Garmin Connect and it is all set to do what is needed.
As it's dark, cold, and icy, my wife would really feel better with my running if she could track my progress.
