    Question GPS apps for my Storm

    Hey all. I am traveling to Brazil in September and I was hoping to find a free and/or relatively inexpensive GPS app to track my whereabouts for my family back home. I would also like to be able to upload pics directly to the internet so they can see some of the cool stuff I'm seeing. Anything out there that is any good? I played around with GPSed lite, but found it to be a little tricky and I couldn't figure out how to upload pics from my phone. Thanks!!

    I actually use google maps on my phone and I have played around with latitude, but I dont think I can upload pics. Is that possible?

    The real killer is gonna be the data usage.

    AmaZe

    There is a fully functional GPS app called AmaZe and its very accurate. It does need a data connection for the maps.

    amAze - Free GPS Navigation for your mobile phone!

    You can check out the Map Coverage page to ensure they have maps for Brazil. Pretty much all of Latin America is covered.

    If you are already using Google Maps then I would say Google Latitude is probably your best bet

    I would agree with using google stalker, I mean latitude. You could always send pics to people instead of uploading them to the interweb and then the people having to go and view them.

    I guess it would be good if you had kids and wanted to track them.
