Map widget Locate button: blue dot not moving?

I have the Locate enabled in the Map widget in my Experience. When I test it on my Android (Chrome browser) while travelling, I found that the blue dot does not move as I move, meaning that I need to press on the Locate button again and again to update my location. Is it how it is expected to behave? If I remember correctly, in AppBuilder, the blue dot moves continuously when the user travels. 

On the documentation there is just one line: Locate—Display the user’s current location, so I'd like to hear from the development team to confirm it's behavior.

Thank you!

I have the same issue. In Experience Builder you can only show your current locations. It looks like the API Locate Widget is available, just not the Track Widget. Will add this to the feature request forum.

That would be a great feature, to have location update as the mobile device is moved.  This would give the same experience as google maps.  And help with wayfinding.
