Locating utility for GPSgate for Blackberry smartphones.
Shows buddies or vehicles with Google Maps or Blackberry Maps.
Quick User Guide
- download and install the application
- make sure all settings are correct
- click trackwheel in main screen if list is empty, or select Menu-Refresh list to initiate download from server
- once list is populated, select desired buddy/vehicle and click trackwheel to locate it in preferred mapping application
Note: as for now Google Maps will not "invoke" a location more than once, so to re-locate a buddy a second time you
need to restrt Google Maps. Blackberry does not show this problem.
