thanks ff. got the link. looks just like bbtracker, (screenwise). both programs will do the trick. i like the added features my wm didn't have. one advantage wm did have though was the ability to change the radius. i'm still playing around, but haven't found that feature yet on bb. if you travel 1o miles on wm. you can zoom the radius to as small as 100 sq ft. the screen would move along the line as you moved. much easier to pinpoint your turns as compared to traveling 10 miles on bb and having the whole track on the screen. but like i said, i'm still playing around to learn the new software.
worse case scenario. i can always pack my wm along. since the software is all satellite, it won't matter that the phone no longer activated.
just have to make sure the phone and bluetooth receiver are charged since they won't be getting used anymore.
it's saved my arse quite a few times. better then calling 911 to come and find me.
