    Another update.

    Found a cool app for tracking at InstaMapper - Free Real-Time GPS Tracking. Works great on the Tour. The only problem that I had was getting it to lock onto a GPS signal but that was worked out after reading the forums at InstaMapper. You have to disable the GPS-A setup on Tour used with VZW or Sprint. You do this in the settings of the app. Once I did that, it worked great.

    If you're not traveling, the software sends out updates every minute. If you are moving faster than 20 miles an hour, the software can send updates as short as 5 seconds. You can change the intervals at your discretion beyond 1 minute.

    The tracking website offers a simple mechanism to view the data being sent and you can also share the data with others by the use of a web link generator. You also export to Google Earth.


    All in all, this was the app that has responded the best so far. Very cool little app. I'll keep you abreast of any other experiences I have with the software.

    later,

    Pat

    :1244:If you are on Sprint try the Family Locator, works great. And I have Google Maps and Latitude on my Tour and it works with no problems. Or in App. World do a search for an app called AccuTracking.

    hey, i was also looking for a gps tracking app to use while biking. i found GPSed to be very useful. it lets me create maps of my rides and give me my average and top speed, direction, distance traveled, and all that jazz. and it's free
    Map your tracks and photos, share your position from your mobile | free Mobile GPS Tracking Service
    all i need now is a way to mount my bb to my bike so i can read my speed and see my location.

If you find one you like with the options you need, stick with it for a while and use it regularly. This will help it get more accurate. MMM.... And make sure all of your permissions are set to allow. I hope this helps and something we have suggested works...
    I am using Google Maps with no issue's. Like you said give it alittle time to "settle in".
