    Default Tracking app to share route with others

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone has recommendations about a tracking app (Android) that will allow me to share my route with others. There are several apps that do this but I wanted to know if there is one that users of this forum would recommend based on their experience.

    Thanks
    Fernando

    Default Interesting app

    Fernando,

    I guess such an app would be helpful -- by giving peace of mind to folks not on the road trip. Over the years, we've tested the performance of devices that were developed to track trucks and trucking shipments. It is incredible how detailed the reporting devices can be.

    It seems a tad too big-brothery to me to know that an Android phone has this capability now.

    On the other hand, it could be very useful for creating roadtrip reports for publication later. So, please let us know whether or not you used such an app and what you thought of it.

    Mark,

    Thanks for the reply. Just to clarify my question: I don't *need* to report my location/route in real time (though I can see how that would be desirable in some settings). Just being able to report once a day would be nice, as long as I can show departure and arrival location, as well as the route.

    I have a couple of apps in mind to try. I'll come back an post how/if they worked for me.

    Thanks,
    Fernando
