  • LoJack your smart phone

    Inspired by Ferris' post of Android apps, I went searching for one to track my Droid's location and found this one:

    http://www.instamapper.com/

    It has clients for several phone operating systems, including Android, iPhone, and Blackberry.

    To conserve battery power, I have mine set to send an update every half hour. (The GPS radio is a battery hog.) The default is every 5 seconds, which is good if you want to see your track while you're hiking or driving. The rapid rate is also a data hog, so it can run up a big bill if you don't have an unlimited data plan.

    A couple of days ago an iPhone was stolen while being used to demonstrate a new lojacking app:

      There are several good apps for this. I use mobiledefense in conjunction with gps tracker. I can remotely activate, lock, unlock, simlock and wipe my phone from the website. Not to mention that it will get me a GPS fix on my phone within 10 feet.
