GPS.PI for Pocket PC Phone Edition
The GPS.PI will send and receive coordinates information via SMS or e-mail to other Pocket PC Phone Edition, show and manage maps and pinpoint presence based on location information received.

This program forwards information collected from a GPS device and forward to friends using a specially crafted SMS or e-mail message. On the receiving side the program will use this information to show friends' location on map.

Maps can be any image stored on the device, and calibration can be automatically performed by confirming at least three points in the map before using the image.

Friends are shown in the map, and images or photos can be associated with telephone numbers, shown over the map when a position is received. The program will show up to 10 friends in the map. For each friend up to 100 points will be shown, including information about movement, direction and speed.

The program recognizes position messages from various types of hardware. You can use it also to take positions from acar's built-in tracking device, from mobile GPS Locator, Benofon telephone or other hardware. If a GPS is not available messages can be sent with manually entered information.
