Gps real time tracking, any web sites, I only found one.

I am planning a long bike trip this year, pretty strong chance it will be just me. I dont know where I am going yet, Colorado, California or the Smoky Mountains anywhere. Anyways I am going to get a GPS and would like my family and friends to be able to check in on me if they like.

I found this site that tracks and lets you take photos that you can post on the site for people to see. Its still in Beta, but you guys know of any others?

were you not?

Anyways, what kinda phone you gots? Some you can buy a blue tooth gps reciever for which essentially turns your phone/smart phone into a gps using google maps or other free software.

Ohh, nevermind, that would'nt let them track you though. I believe you can track with microsoft streets, but you would have to have it running all the time.

wouldn't that only let you use gps navigation. it is essentially a gps receiver not a transmitter.

The site I posted uses GPS phones or regular GPS's. I have an iphone. I am going to buy a GPS to help me with my trip, that is what I will use for tracking.

Scotsman thanks for the site. But I am looking for something that I can use with my GPS, and something that anyone can see where I am and see pics without having to log into a secure website. The website I post is what I want, but its still in beta, so I am looking for something that has been up and running with the kinks worked out.

Any GPS device is only a reciever, not a tracker, thus, to send your tracks somewhere like a website you would also need a transmitter. A popular choice for this is a cellphone. But the technology involved can become too much of a burden to maintain. You have the following options:

1. Many GPS devices will save your tracks and allow you to connect/send them to a computer when you are back.
2. Use and existing cellphone tracking technology. A great example is Boost Mobile's "Loopt" or http://mologogo.com/ However that usually requires access to the internet on the cellphone which costs $.
3. Build or buy a complete tracking package. These run about $200+ and require a SIM-based cellphone network to operate.
