Those are two mighty big IF's.

Uh huh. And how many years have they been working on this?

Many people think they are already usable. At least they work reliably,
which puts them far ahead of glideport.

It is either impossible or difficult to do with any tracker I tried. If I was the developer of one of those trackers, I wouldn’t sleep until I could provide this very basic functionality.
If it's so easy, why don't you just do it yourself?

That limit is not from silly privacy concerns, it's EU law. 24 hrs
should be enough for SAR work. As I previously stated, 24 hrs on all
viewers would be nice, but there already is one that provides that.
