    8800 GPS Tracking On Desktop

    Advertisement



    I recently installed Google Maps for mobile on my 8800 and it is a great app. It provides real time tracking of your location overlayed on a map and/or satellite view. My question is: is there software to track the live location of your 8800 on a desktop computer? In other words, monitor where the 8800 is from a web app or something?

    Thanks

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I don't know about a standalone app, but Sprint has its locator service. It's a fee based dervice though.

    I'd like to see a data logger type of app that access the gps and logs your location over time. Then let you overlay it to Gooogle maps or something.

    To launch the gps, go outside with clear view of the sky. It should takes 15 minutes to work
    For tracking its location on BB there is also a third app called bbTracker that works great

    Can I answer my own question...? Mologogo is also a good third party app that provides gps tracking.

    Thanks
