I have been really wanting to get a N900 and as of now everything I normally do on my HTC Fuze running windows mobile 6.5.3 is duplicated good enough on it to swap over except for one program:

The one I use when I am running around the country on my motorcycle so friends can see what I am doing is called TrackMe. I use it on my website that shows a google maps view with realtime mapping with a tracking log and it even shows the pictures on the map where I took them. You can see it at http://rthompson.us/track

From the trackme website

Description

GPS tracking tool

This application retrieves GPS positions from a GPS device (built-in or bluetooth) or Cell ID information from a phone provider. That information is later used for displaying tracks (realtime or pre-recorded) with Google Earth, Google Maps or other tools.

The program uses a server where your data is uploaded. If you don't have an Internet connection or you prefer not to use it, you can store your data locally on your PDA and upload it later when an Internet connection is available or you use ActiveSync. You can use my server (free of charge) for storing your data. TrackMe is already configured to use this server by default.


I have been searching around and have not found anything similar to this. I figure I could cobble something together if it was possible to get a kml file on the phone and have it rsync through ssh to my server every 5 minutes or something. But if there is something out there already that works similar to trackme I would probably buy this phone today. Anyone got any ideas?

You can find GPS applications in the Location / Navigation section of the Software Catalog. Perhaps eCoach and Minigpsd do what you want.
