    I use Delorme Street Atlas USA handheld edition along with the Delorme Blue Logger Earthmate wireless GPS receiver on my Treo 650. Quite a nice combination and i'm very pleased with both. Does anyone know of a way to transmit your GPS coordinates live or every minute or so using the treo? I was thinking someone on a PC or another treo somewhere with another GPS mapping software, could receive the GPS coordinates and plug them into their local map for a realtime track of your location. Any thoughts?

    Here is a link to a website for a company that is considering developing software for a Palm to do what you asked about. - www.3dtracking.net

    If there is enough interest they will develop the software for free.

    PLEASE send them email if you are interested. It looks like a cool thing that several of us would like.

    Maybe a combination of cotoGPS (http://core.de/~coto/projects/cotogps/) and GPSVisualizer (http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/) would work for you?

    OK, so it's not live, but it does allow you to see your tracks.

    Just another suggestion...

    I had the same setup before changing to TomTom. I still use the BlueLogger GPS, but the Street Atlas software was just about worthless for me. If you tried to create a route on the fly, it would take up to an hour for it to process on the Treo. Of course you can create the route on your PC and then sync it to your Treo, but that kind of defeats the purpose. I could not just pick a state, or region, and put on a card. I had to create a route and if I wanted other info, I had to use a select tool and physically select the other areas on PC map and then sync what I selected. I will say I had the 2005 version and not the current version of 2006. But, from my experience, they would have had to make a huge change to make it fast enough and user friendly enough to use instead of TomTom or Mapopolis.

    I been nagging TomTom for a desktop companion and they said they were planning one witha future release. I really want the ability to:

    1. Record / Save Route
    2. Plan route w/ multiple waypoints
    3. Use "trails" version.
