Have you ever wondered how far you drive in a day? How about where you were last week? If you have a Nokia phone with GPS then you can track your movements for free. (Something like the N95 is ideal)
SportsTracker is a free application that takes advantage of your phones GPS to track your location, average speed and a few other bits and pieces, and enables you to upload the data to the internet where you can either make it private so only you can see it, or share it with your friends. You’ll need a data connection to upload from your phone, but once upload you can view your trip on a map to show you exactly where you have been.
My walk on the 27 October around Southwalk:
If you have a data plan with your phone contract you can share live data, so if Steve is travelling over to my house and he sharing his journey, I can track his process and when he gets near get the kettle on.
SportsTracker is aimed at people looking to keep fit but works just as well if you are driving with the phone stuffed in your pocket.
Settings recorded for my journey:
Give it a go, you’ll be surprised just how far you travel in a day.
