    Google Latitude is notorious for not really being real time... and many times, it is not accurate since it uses triangulation at certain points. This program will show you up to date and accurate (as accurate as your pre will allow). That, coupled by the fact that google latitude is not "officially" supported by WebOS yet. Also, with IT, you will be able to export your "track" to google earth or whatever and save it.

    So, if you go on a long ride (motorcycle for me) and would like to save where you have been, you can do that. Lattitude just shows where you currently are.

    Just an update for everyone. I broke 3 bones in my right (dominant) hand motorcycle racing on Monday.

    I will absolutely keep making updates to InstanTrax, but forum replies will be hard for me since I can no longer type with more than one finger at a time...

    Next release should be out soon. Only ONE more bug to iron out!

    Alrighty then! v0.9.7 is ready, complete with working KML logging!

    It's important that you delete the old version before installing this one!

    Enjoy!

    ok, so playing with this new release yesterday, it seems to email out KML files on its own. What interval does it do this? Seems to be working fine, but would like to find a way to get rid of "beta tester 4" on Google Earth. Suppose that will happen later.

    But, hands down, I like what I am seeing here, good job!!!!

    Glad to hear it's working alright for you

    Next release will have options for KML logging frequencies

    When will this be open to the public? I'd like to use something like this since WIMP has been abandoned.

    Will it be possible to somehow transfer my WIMP account to this app or will it not last a year either before abandoned for a more profitable app?
    PalmPilot Pro --> Palm III --> Palm V --> Palm 505 --> Treo 700p --> Palm Pre

    Good question. I had also paid for a year service with WIMP but sadly it's reliability is not what it used to be.

    Sorry for the delay everyone. Hard to type/program with a broken hand...

    New version released today. Here is the changelog:
    Code:
    ** 0.9.8 **
    	+ more persistent through restarts
    	+ kml logging bugs fixed
    	+ faster response to pings (5 minutes vs 10)
    Also, a tip I'm not sure all of you know about. If you want to give your link directly to someone, it's like this:

    http://www.instantrax.net/index.php?track=<your key>.

    Obviously, put your key in. So, for example:

    http://www.instantrax.net/index.php?track=789034789041326abccdbecde387a5b3

    Enjoy!

    I will not be downloading this as I have decided to go to the HTC EVO. I am waiting on the EVO right now. It is too bad as I had high hopes for Palm last year, but after MANY miss steps, I think it is time to go to a something else, and I think the Android OS is the best that I have played out there... good luck with this project... going back to instamapper.com for my data tracking needs.

    So do we have a status report? Been watching this thread for a while now. When can we expect some GPS tracking goodness?

    Just wanted to know the status of instantrax, and also, I purchased a year of standard WIMP today and it's not doing what it needs to. (No update, wrong gps fix, etc.) is there a way I could switch without paying again? Because it sounds like you're more invested into this new app.

    FYI, I was just charged for another year of service to WIMP so beware if you or any other users are in the same boat. I am trying to get a refund right now so I'll let everyone know how it goes.
