    There are lots of WMD-like apps out there that turn on GPS, sends location info, and rings loudly when your droid receives a certain SMS, but none of them, it seems, are compatible with Google Voice. Does anyone know of one? I have SMS on my cell phone blocked and use GV exclusively, so it would be awesome to find such an app. Alternatively, an app that triggers from a certain gmail message would work, too, or X amount of calls from a certain phone number (like Phoning Pigeon, but it doesn't help track).

    Oh right, forgot about that. When I tried that out it never worked for me, plus Tasker, Settings Profile, etc hurt my battery and processor. But thanks for the reply, keep 'em coming, hopefully we can find a solution.

    You need to look into why those apps are killing your battery. If you're constantly polling the GPS receiver, that's a great way to kill your battery, for example. I use Tasker all the time with little impact on battery life.
