Amtrak Connect live train-tracking map: gone?

At least on Northeastern trains, Amtrak's on-board WiFi used to direct you to AmtrakConnect.com, which had a map that had live tracking of your train. It would show your train, in motion, on a map, with its speed, and the train's position and speed would constantly be updated.

Now that seems gone, at least on a long-distance train that I'm on. You can click on the "Track Your Train" page on the Amtrak website, but just shows a summary of your train's location and speed a few minutes ago, and it doesn't update in real time. For example, you can be cruising through Princeton Junction at 125 miles per hour, but the Track Your Train site shows you at Metuchen 7 minutes before doing 53 miles per hour, more or less.

Is there a way to get the live map back?

Thanks.

I reccomend using https://asm.transitdocs.com/ for train tracking. though it does tend to be 5-10 minutes behind live.

It's gone. My last bunch of Acela trips have been far less entertaining because of it.
