livetracker

LiveTracker is a free application for BlackBerry that is currently in the BETA stage. The LiveTracker mobile client can be installed on any BlackBerry and sends out location data to the Skylab GPS server. This app could be really useful for anyone interested in a cheap way to get involved in geocaching. Try it out and let me know what you think.

Features:

  • Free Download: LiveTracker Mobile is available for free non-commercial use – download.
  • Background Tracking: Start LiveTracker and it sends the GPS location to our tracking server.
  • Free Tracking Server: For storing tracking data we maintain a tracking server – for free.
  • Share Location: Send EMail, PIN, SMS, MMS message to your location’s map representation.
  • BETA TEST: Due to the early stage of this application please report any bugs to us. Thank you.

    Installed the app but all it does is search for satellites. GPS is enabled and finds satellites just fine in BB maps. I have a verizon 8330. I have also played with app permissions but to no avail. Any thoughts?

    Yet another GPS app, the popularity of them is increasing. Good thing that they are becoming more and more interesting and offer more features. Would be willing to try it out for the “Share Location” feature, thats something for the e-mail, pin and sms compatability. Still mostly using Google Maps as I’m used to it, but the better and faster they make these apps the better.

    Perhaps this should read “any Blackberry except the Storm”, which is not listed as being supported. :(

    So uh…Is the download link down? Pretty useless if you can’t download it on their website

    Not very secure.

    All this app does is send your location to their website while it’s running.

    The problem is that the web address that you give out is simply using your blackberry PIN as the lookup value.

    There is no way to give each of your contacts a different link
    There is no way to prevent that contact you sent your location to from viewing your location later on except to stop using the software.

    So if you are OK with giving out your location and never being able to remove their access in the future without abandoning the whole thing then great.

    Also if you do decide to abandon the software then I don’t see any way to remove your last location so it will always show the last place you were at. People could just start randomly guessing BB PIN numbers to find people who use the service along with where they were the last time they used the program.

    I’m going to go drive out to the middle of nowhere, update my last location and then delete this thing until they have added some security measures to it.

    Yes, “any blackberry but the storm” might be a useful way of putting it.
    BB comes up with these catchy names, you should use them. i don;t know what # a storm is

    Hmm, yes if there’s no way to set levels of access to the location data it’s not worth me trying out. Tested Instamapper earlier on a bike ride, seems to work quite well;

    You need to install it in your friends cell phone first, then you can track him/her, hope it helps.

    I have tried it but its not working properly i am afraid…Spybubble is better tool for gps tracking and sms spying, it is not free, but works good

    If you want to trace a mobile phone number in order to find out information about who owns it, you are better off knowing how to do it. The internet is full of a lot of spam websites claiming to have the capacity to offer free reverse lookup service; users should watch because no such thing exist! Reverse lookup websites pay heavily for every report users get, how possible is it then to trace a cell phone number for free? Such arrant and misleading information should be told to the marines, where they need it the most.
