Default BB8830+GPS, automatic web updating?

Please Login to Remove!

Using the BlackBerry 8830 on Sprint, what software is available to upload my exact, current location (via internal GPS) to a custom Google Map every X number of seconds? Similar to what this guy did.

I've been able to do this exact thing using various 3rd party services (such as Mologogo), but I'd like to do this to my own Google Map (I have the API on my domain). Does anyone know of a simple BB program that will upload GPS coordinates every X number of seconds to a specific location? That way I can hack Gmaps to pull that data and update a map in real time.

If there isn't any existing software, how hard would it be to code something like this?

There's BlackBerry Tracker, which got it's own thread here.

Not to be confused with bbTracker, which is the tool I write, which has a slightly different goal and can't do what you want (yet ).
