  • SPLIT: Tracking GPS

    This is great info guys!
    I'm going to be taking a trip to VA, from RI this summer, and I'm looking into picking up a receiver, this info will help me alot. I'll probably go with Streets and Trips for software, since I already own it.
    While I'm out on this trip my wife is staying home with my son. I think I would like it if she could track my progress. This way I don't need to stop, and call her every 10 miles. (she worries a lot).
    Any suggestions on how, or if that's possible without spending $400 on specialized software?

    Thanks in advance

    yes, it's possible. You need to have an internet connection from wherever you drive. The applications would upload coordinates to a website.
    There are many services, mostly free, that will allow a user to view your progress plotted on a map from the coordinates you upload.

    Search the forums for GPS TRACKING and do some reading....

    Lastly, if your wife needs you to check in that often, I really feel for you...
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

          I can't fathom anyone who is in a relationship that requires such constant check-ins as vbeing anywhere NEAR "happy".

            wouldn't it just be easier to use a cell phone?

            I have used some of the tracking services, and they are ok, but if you hit a dead spot with no internet service, it's gonna look to you wife as though you haven't moved an inch...

              Hes climbing the Mt Everest? in a race? treasure hunts? wifes need to monitor his "progress" at all time in order to win?

              Perhaps they work in a team and the team mate happens to be the wife?

              Regardless they are both ok with it, its nice to see happy couples
