after setting it up and clicking on the "Start" you can exit from the scheduler app. no app will run in the background up until it reaches the specified time interval.

@orb3000: thanks

KML and XML Files directory
11. Use DecDeg2DecMin.exe, click on CONVERT

TO POINTS

12. Choose the KML file you just created from

Google Earth and it wil automatiacally

convert it to an XML file
13. Copy the XML file to your device's

\Storage Card\SendMyLocation\XML folder
14. Done!


Hi sir charlie. after clicking convert to points, where would the converted file go? the kml file say, saved on my desktop would disappear and searching on my directory, cant seem to find the file, also the converted xml file. (i guess they would have the same filename)

Great app!!

I noticed a pair of issues:

-Sometimes the app is not actioning. For example: the first time I installed the app (mail setting, 1 minute for testing purposes), only three times arrived the email with the coordinates. Soft reset and nothing, but open the app again, stopped the sender, restarted the sender, and It work fine, but not sure If this will happen another time.

-When my device is in sleep mode, at sending the email the screen turns on for few moments (in blank)






Requests:


Can you add a pair of thing for n0obs/lazy users like me? (they do not want to deal with xml files)


-The format of the coordinates in the email mesagge

Current:

2/22/11 2:54:23 AM @ No Data
LAT: 16.xxxxxxx, LON: -99.xxxxxxxx


Desired:
2/22/11 2:54:23 AM @ No Data
LAT/LON
16.xxxxxxx, -99.xxxxxxxx

This only for direct copy/paste this coordinates in
http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl




-Or even better: Can you add a clickeable link in the email, that positionates the location directly in Google Maps, via the default browser?
(I just tested it manually in Opera Mobile, and it works, but first need to access to "classic" site of Google Maps [not mobile])


Yes, there are a most advanced ways to use this useful app, but I think that in this way (positioning by means google maps, in the default browser PPC/PC) must be useful for noobs users like me


Best Regards
