Can I track the location of a mobile device that is offline?

With our location tracking solution you can get access to the location data of your users consistently, even if they are offline or traveling through a remote location. As soon as a device loses its internet connection, our SDK will continue to track the user's location but instead of sending the location updates in real time, it will store them locally onto the device. This file is merely a couple of kilobytes so it will not affect the device speed or storage speed too much. Then, once the device is back online, the stored locations collected during the offline period will be published in batches while the live location tracking resumes.

It is important to note that when we are talking about offline location tracking we are not talking about tracking without GPS, but purely tracking without an internet connection.
