Seems a very basic website for something that offers so much.

Also it only gives a few models of compatability seeing all the gps devices on the market.

Is a PDA ( XDA in particular ) covered with this?

I am only suspicious as if you need to send them data, how do we know whats leaving our device? - files, etc ???

Does it need a GPRS always on service to work ? - will good ole WAP do ?

Thanks

I'm sure WAP would do, but CSD would work out horribly expensive.

What device & OS did you run this on?

Call me paranoid, but I'm not sure what they get out of this as it all appears to be free, but it must have cost them some $$s to set it all up and maintain the service. That said I'd be interested to give it a try sometime to see how well it works.

Cheers,
Chris

I've tried it on the iPhone and BlackBerry, and am looking at developing clients for it for MTX-65+G (http://www.tdc.co.uk/index.php?key=matrix), they are thinking of opening up the API.

We already run logging and tracking software on these devices, linking to Streetmap, Flash Earth or Google Earth for example, but this service looks to be excellent.

I'm sure they will be able to monetise it with advertising - much like Streetmap, a free service too.

just read the terms and conditions, as long as you are aware of them before hand then you can decide if this service is for you.

just a small snippet from their website


InstaMapper's GPS tracking software installed on a cell phone is intended to be used in conjunction with an unlimited data plan. You are warned that you may incur substantial data charges should you decide to use our service without an unlimited data plan. Under no circumstances shall InstaMapper be liable for any charges billed by your cell phone company.


Governing law
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Washington. Should a dispute arise, you agree that any legal proceedings against InstaMapper LLC shall be initiated in a state or federal court located in King County, Washington.



Kind regards Graham
