BlackLine makes its money by selling tracking credits which expire monthly. They’ve got a couple of plans based on how much tracking you plan on doing, which you can easily scale up and down as the case may be. The bottom rung is $3 for 30 credits. Now come on, 10 cents to know where your car or buddy is is a pretty sweet deal, no matter how you cut it. Of course, the real issue is the hardware – right now only the BlackBerry 8800 is supported, but we can surely see BlackBerry 8310 compatability coming soon enough. For folks checking out this site, a GPS-enabled BlackBerry isn’t that much of a stretch, but the GPS Snitch is fairly steep, running $399.99. It has an impressive 5-day battery life, and works entirely independently (no need for Bluetooth pairing or anything like that).
For $399.99, the GPS Snitch is little more than a GPS puck with a built-in alarm – but if you’re in the market for some no-fuss car security, it might have a bit more value to you. Blip is really innovative, hip, and easy to use. It’s good to know that in a pinch, my friends can find me. We’re going to give the GPS Snitch 3 Moles out of 5 and the Blip software for the BlackBerry 8800 a 4 Where-Shares out of 5.
