WhereAreYou GPS Locator for Blackberry

There’s an application out there for blackberry devices called WhereAreYou.

WhereAreYou listens for text messages with a certain keyword in them from a certain list of numbers that you can configure and then in response it automatically replies with a text message containing the latitude/longitude coordinates, plus a link to Google Maps to visually locate the device on a map.

It only costs $5, comes with life time updates and and only requires 16KB of space on your device.

In the case where the device does not have a satellite fix it’ll keep trying in the background.

We wonder if its possible to have this application run completely hidden…

    This app works as advertised. It is easy to setup, when you send the SMS message with the key phrase, you get back a message with latittude and longitude of the BB in question. One thing I can’t seem to get working though is the Google Map link does not open a Google Map. I have to manually open Google Maps, extract the latitude and longitude from the link, then in shows the location just fine. Hopefully in the next release I won’t have this additional step.
