Thanks for the heads up to allow administrator privileges, it is of limited use without. My location of the device is miles out, it's where I was maybe an hour ago. Not sure how real time the tracking is.

dpw:That's interesting. Does this only work on devices with phone functionality? I have two Android devices, but the second one is a WiFi tablet.

Unsure, but I have 2x phones. One is a Galaxy S3 running Android 4.3 which is my primary phone.

The other is an Huawei Ideos X5 running Android 2.3 - which I believe is supported.

Worked on s4 (google edition ROM), nexus 7 (3g), and acer iconia (wifi only). 
I might have to set up my sensation and see if that works too.

The site attempts to connect to my phone but then just says location unavailable. Can't ring it either.

I am wondering how much of a hammering those servers are getting currently.
