GPS LOGGER App Question?

 Can this app be used to find a lost or stolen BB, can you view your location frm a PC or only from a BB?

Hello,

 

See this helpful thread to start:

Depending on the capabilities of your app, you may or may not be able to use it for this purpose. Have you researched the app yet? In looking at their AppWorld catalog page:

I see these interesting statements:

Good luck!

Re: GPS LOGGER App Question?

Hi,

 

actually GPSLogger can share a location remotely - but this always requires a user action on the device that sends the location - so with other words it's not suitable.

 

But there is another app from emacberry.com that exactly does what you want to do - it's always running (even password protected if you want) and you can send your device a eMail (with pwd) or PIN Message and then the app is going to reply with the current GPS Location of the tracked device.

 

The app is called LittleBrother and is available here:
