    idea to navigate from point A to point B using Destinator and PhoneControl !!

    i have an idea guys
    let us say you are in some point A and one of your friends in point B and he is trying to navigate you to his location but it was not possible for some reason.
    i was thinking about adding a new functionality to destinator which is send location by sms when this function excuts it will send the curent location by sms through phonecontrol,the receptiant will receve this msg on his system and a new window will popup with "someone sent you his location do you want to navigate now"
    yes - no
    if you click yes your phonecontrol will send the location to destinator and navigation will start !!
    what do you think guys ??

    sorry for my bad english

    Also, not many phones can send you an address like that. I also don't think you can send a longitude and latitude like that. WHere in the phone would that come from. How would it get into the SMS?

    This is just silly.... ofcourse it would only allow contacts from numbers on your buddy list and only one per person at the time rest would be filtered out.

    Ofcourse 99% of new applications allow new venues for denial of service attacks... but gosh if we would allow that to stop development, we wouldnt have internet, telephone, public road networks, shops... do i need to go on...

    getting even more sillier.... eaten too many mushrooms today, people??? Every phone which can send sms can send address, then navigator at receiving end can do translation to coordinates. Besides all bluetooth phones can be connected to external wearable GPS module, for example LD-1W from nokia, so getting coords is no prob either

    sms can send anythign, it can send hex code like when some one sends you a ringtone.
    it is not that complecated the sms will contain CF_Location x,y
    CF_Location so phonecontrol can recognize that this sms should passed to destinator and x,y it the longitude and latitude or whatever needed to find a location.

    Why wouldn't your friend look at the intersection he's at and send it's address? Seems a lot more mainstream than them needing a GPS at hand.
