    Update coming later today (17 Oct 2009). Will enable beeping your phone, gps accuracy preferences (set from the device), and a manual upload button.

    Stay tuned to this thread for the update.

    If you lose your phone in the couch or something, you can make it beep from the website. Sure, you could just have someone call your phone as well, but if no one's around this could come in handy.

    so lets say I go on the website...and I activate it to on...how long will it take for it to beep my phone...and will the ringer keep on beeping or for a certain amount of time?

    EDIT: also will it send the signal on the interval you set for uploading?

    The ringer will keep going until you deactivate it. There may be a 1 hour limit inflicted by Palm, but I'm not sure as I can't stand the noise my phone makes for more than a few seconds... I'm sure someone will let us know soon.

    When you activate the feature, the next time your phone uploads it will pull the beep information from the site. If you have beep set to ON at that point, that's when the phone will begin to sound off.

    Right now, Palm has not granted access to be able to push custom messages to the phones. This means we have to keep operating on a fixed interval. As soon as Palm lets developers push messages to phones, I'll update the server to have real-time features.

    Hey Xluryan,

    I have been travelling. Right now I'm in Omaha. I travelled from LA to Salt Lake to Denver and then here. My map shows me travelling from LA to Salt Lake to Minneapolis, to Omaha and shows me at St. Louis now. Do you know why its showing these extra places?

    2 things...

    If your phone is stationary (lost in the couch), my understanding is that it will not upload a location until it moves... so, effectively, it will never beep for you? Just a thought...

    Next... any way to get the speed the phone was traveling at an update? Just thinking that if you had that info, you could estimate better where the phone is if it has been stolen...I think the GPS already has that info, if I am correct...

    Good points. If you're always upload is on, then the beep will work for you. But you are correct, it may be a while before it beeps... if at all. I am mostly just putting it here so that when Palm released the power to let devs push messages to the phone, I'm ready.

    As for the speed, that sounds great and I think it'd be useful for several reason. If it's possible to do it, I'll have it done

    If you go to the My Account page on the site, make sure that you have Service Active set to ON. Every time the phone uploads it grabs these settings from the site.

    initially when I tried that the button wouldn't even switch, like it was frozen (just the account active button, all others seemed to work fine) but now I woke up and everything seems to be working fine. Thanks!

    Not sure where you live, but I envy your ability to sleep until noon my time

    Glad to hear everything is working

    lol I work a weird schedule and work 2-11 monday and tuesday...I enjoy it! Anyways love the beep feature...I'm thinking of putting some sort of warning on there in case my phone does get stolen, some sort of "i'm watching you" warning or whatever else, to warn the thief! Keep upthe great work!

    New version posted (v0.8.8). Fixes a bug when setting the beep sound.

    Should be available from fileCoaster soon.
