Default Looking for GPS app

Please Login to Remove!

After searching the forum and trying numerous apps (Live Tracker, etc) I have yet to find one that 1)Works on my Tour and 2)Does what I am looking for.
What I am looking for is a GPS app that uploads to a 'central' server and has the ability to create a 'map' of my BB current location. I would sear I had seen some time ago a co-worker (oh which I do not recall the name) had a link in his email to an app that showed his current location.
I am smoking too much wacky tobacky again or is what I am looking for available?

BBMaps should show a map with your location. Actually any map application should show a map of where you are.

I think Google maps does not work on the Tour, but that would be another option, similar to BBMaps.

Have you looked in the GPS & Mapping section? Check the yellow sticky at the top.

Thanks.
I am not sure if I was clear. Google maps works great on my Tour but I am the only one who can see it. I am looking for an app that uploads my GPS location to a map that anyone with Internet access can get to.
I will continue to look/search and find the infamous 'yellow sticky' that I cannot see :(

Google Maps does this if you have Latitude enabled & turned on.

Glad everything's working for you now.
