Default [App] *TrackMe* GPS Tracking tool for Google Earth & Google Maps. Now avail. for WP7!



HISTORY

TrackMe is the conversion of the popular tool written originally for Windows Mobile 5 and 6. This version of Windows Phone 7 still doesn't have all the features than the original one, but if people keep interested I will continue adding them periodically. You can find the original thread for TrackMe here

WHAT IS TRACKME?

TrackMe is a GPS tracker. It uses the location services on your phone to retrieve your current position. That information is later used for displaying tracks (realtime or pre-recorded) with Google Earth, Google Maps or other tools.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

TrackMe uploads your data to a server. If you don't have an internet connection or you prefer not to use it while you are tracking, you can store your data locally on your phone and upload it later when an internet connection is available. You can use my server (free of charge) for uploading your data. TrackMe is already configured to use this server by default.

HOW CAN I VIEW MY DATA?

Once your data is uploaded you can view it by going to http://luisespinosa.com/trackme and using the web viewer for Google Maps developed by the community. You can also export your data to a KML or GPX file and use Google Earth or any other tool that accepts that format. Remember that you cannot view or export your data until is has been uploaded to the server.

WHAT'S NEXT?

As I mentioned there are still many features that are not available for WP7 yet. If there is enough demand I will keep working on this tool. Some of these features are the ability to upload pictures (extracting the GPS data and match them with your existing positions), force updates with your own custom icons and comments, extended trip summary information, send your location by email/sms, Geofence and many more.

I hope you enjoy this tool. If you have any comments or want to contribute please use one of the links located in the About screen.

Seems very cool, could perhaps use this as a way to find your phone if you lose it or it gets stolen

Unfortunately that's something you cannot do right now because you cannot have apps running in the background in WP7.

If you guys like TrackMe, do you think you can help me by promoting the app by writing some reviews in the WP7 marketplace? You don't have to give me 5 stars, just what you consider to be fair.

There is a guy who just uploaded an app called Track_Me that has nothing to do with me and he posted a negative comment for mine. It just says 'so bad'.
Very stupid doing that, because it's so easy to trace it and find out he is a developer.

Thanks

I've been using TrackMe on my HTC Touch Cruise for a long time and have been very happy with it.

But nowadays I'm using an Android phone and haven't found anything working quite as well as TrackMe did. I guess you haven't got any plans to also produce an Android version?

We are discussing that right now in the WM's TrackMe thread. You can take a look by going to http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=340667
