Latitude for iPhone is pretty bad. Did you look at glympse? Download the app.. send a link to whoever you want and they can see your position in real time. They dont need any account. They can view the data in any browser. You can also add to your Facebook if you like.

Thank you much for this one. Glympse was pretty much what I was looking for. Would be cool to have some automation in there but man, it's a free app. can't be mad at that.

Pretty decent interface and I can cap the duration broadcast.

Cheers Psycosis

Just remember you may need to keep your phone charged if the GPS and data radio is running constantly. Possibly a challenge on a bicycle, so plan accordingly.

I wonder if Henri is doing the 200km bike ride from Toronto to Niagara? I will be doing it next year.
Just carry a charge pack with you so at the end of day you can charge your phone.

As long as you're not leaving the screen on (i.e., viewing your own progress while you ride), the battery will probably last longer than you will be able to ride. But yes, you'll need to charge it in the evening. I have been surprised by the battery life of the iPhone 5 while running the GPS.

you my friend are absolutely correct. I, by pure coincidence, just bought a Mophie Juice Pack plus for pretty cheap. I'll have that baby all juiced up for the race.

I might do that one in the future. But I'm actually going to do the Heart n Stroke Ride. RIding your bike on the Gardiner / DVP is so much fun - for those who've yet to do it.

I'll be doing the 50 km ride. Looking fwd to it in fact.

Ha. Nah. I have a bunch of musician friends who consider it standard issue so I know it's fine. This should take me no more than 90 mins so I should be more than fine w/ GPS on the whole time.

If it's an iPhone 5, you can go for 6+ hours with the GPS, no problem (with no supplemental battery pack).
