On the "track view" page you have an option to select tracking time interval (long touch on "tracking" button) for continuous tracking or you can just search for your current location using GPS or Network.

It is very convenient feature that allows you to add points to your track manually while taking a tour, walking, biking, jogging, running or travelling.

Tracking time interval is an approximate preferable value. Actual time intervals greatly depend on reception conditions and may vary.
Use it wisely, extensive GPS usage can drain your battery fast.
We recommend to use short tracking intervals only with devices plugged into a charger if possible.
