Franson Technology has launched, a GPS mapping portal designed to enable people to share their locations from their Windows laptop or Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC device with friends they have personally approved to "spot" them online. offers a way for a group of friends or colleagues to synchronise their positions allowing anyone that belongs to the same group to share their current location with the others in their group, which makes it easy to coordinate plans for group activities.

By logging in to, users will be able to see their friends moving in real-time on a map. To share their position with others in their group, they simply need to install GpsGate software on their Windows laptop or Windows Mobile Pocket PC. The software will enable them to share their GPS signal so that it can be received by fellow group members. also offers a Google Earth plug-in so that friends' locations can be spotted on a satellite image rather than a map.

The GpsGate software for Windows or Windows Mobile Pocket PC is US$29.95.
