    I have a question. I had a friend tell me that using my druid 2 I can track someone down using the GPS and some navigation app on my phone. How do I do that?

    There are various solutions for location aware social networking services. I think the latest google maps can now do location check-ins, so if your friends are using it, you can use them to see where they are.

    Can you be more specific about what exactly you want to do? I'm sure folks here can suggest an app, depending on what you want.

    He said I could track someone down with my phone by tracking their phone.

    Yes, if both of you are using one of these social networking apps -- you cant simply track someone if you want to -- they need to allow it to happen.

    Latitude. It's in Google Maps. Or you can set it up on Google on your computer. You ask the person if you can follow them and if they say OK you can track each others locations.
