NEW Map of Location of Andy

The Verizon BlackBerry Storm has a GPS function; I can find my location on the map with Global Positioning Satellites, and then email the location to a person. Boy Genius from India, my techie and friend has made a new feature on the Andy HoboTraveler.com Travel Journal that creates an almost real time Google Map of my present location.

Map of the present location of Andy of HoboTraveler.com



A person can go directly to the Travel Journal and click on one of the maps in the left column which will also take you to this map.

This is cool, anyway I think about it, this cool feature truly hits at the essence or the future of travel writing taking us closer and closer to real time reporting.

I suspect we could generate the real time location of me at any given time; however this makes the maps confusing. In this version this map feature only shows the city where I am located. However, as I understand, I have not had time to play with this inside an internet café; I believe a person can zoom right down to the exact spot where I took a GPS reading.

This is a great way to explore the location or maybe the terrain of a city for great understanding of what I am seeing.

Suggestions and comments are needed, if there is a bug or problem, please enter comments below. I suspect we are having browser compatibility problems.

Note, do not mention the BlackBerry or Opera Mini Internet Browsers to Boy Genius he is not enjoying making pages compatible with these browsers.
