    You could also try Sanoodi SMap - www.sanoodi.com. I use it on my Storm and it's great for tracking & recording routes. You can view them in realtime on their website, upload to the website, save to GPX or KML files on the device and import into Google Earth. The on-device software also give realtime data e.g speed, distance & time etc.
    Excellent free software and good support. Well worth checking out. Not sure of compatibility with Tour though.

    Updated News - Although Blip works well, I can't seem to get it create a map showing the traveled path. I think that some of it has to do with the 15 minute intervals it sends information back to the home server.

    I looked into sanoodi but it doesn't have my device listed on it.

    I'm currently looking into BuddyWay. By the looks of it, it reports back every 3 minutes. I'll let you know what I find.

    Now I'm not an advocate for Google Maps by any means but, I do have it working accurately enough to see where I am in my house... One thing I learned with some of these GPS apps is, they need a little time to settle into your device... 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...

    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
