    My sister has a bb tour, and she uses the vz navigator gps. Is there a way that i can send her my gps location so i don't have to try and write down a million directions? i've tried two programs, and they both force close when they open. one was called HereIm and i can't remember what the other one was.

    this app would be quite cool although I know of such an app. being a feature on google maps on a future update would be awesome

    In GPS Status there is a 'share location' item in the menu. Choices are: Copy to clipboard, By SMS, By e-mail, & By QR Code.

    I sent an SMS to a friend's BB and they were able to tap the link in the SMS to launch their map with my position marked.

    I use it to send an SMS to myself when I park the car in a large lot or strange area. When I'm ready to go home I tap the link, it brings up the map, and away I go.

    It won't update as you move around, but it's simple & free and you could SMS multiple people at once. Makes it easy for folks to find you in a big park, at the beach, etc..

    it works!! while you're looking at the radar,,u hit share location it'll give u the option to copy to clipboard, or send by sms, email or qr code. i sent it by sms which will link u to the google maps site, then i clicked on google maps option and my location was right on

    GPS Stat is a free app on the Marketplace.

    Download/Install that and launch the app. Once it gets a fix hit the 'menu' button on your Droid. That will bring up the 'share' options.
