    Hi,

    First time poster here for my new Curve 8310. First off, I LOVE my blackberry.

    I am looking for some information on a couple of topics really. The first is that my wife and I have google maps and GPS on our phones. We want to know if there is an app that will let my wife (no jokes now!) enter my phone no. or pin, or something, so that she can see were I am on her google maps?

    My second question is, are there any reasonably priced word type processing apps for the blackberry? I've seen the docs to go, but it's a little pricey, and may have more then I need- as it seems the docs to go is bundled up in office to go.

    Oh yes! On more. I would LOVE a Star Trek LCARS type layout for my phone, but don't know where to find one, and if I do, how do I know that it won't nuke my phone?

    Any other advice to a newbie would be helpful. Did I use "nuke" correctly?

    thanks!

    Not sure if there is such a program but for the sake of looking out for my fellow man I could not disclose that kind of information to you. No way I want to be tracked down by my wife....call text or email for me. I believe docs to go may be your only choice but I could be wrong. Welcome to CB btw.

    Docs-to-Go basic is free with OS 4.5, which is also free. The restriction on the free version is that it can't create new documents, only edit existing ones. You can easily work around this restriction by saving blank docs as templates on your media card, then open them for editing when you need to create a new doc.

    Here's some points to discussions and info I've seen on tracking/GPS

    I've never used any of these programs... I just saw your post and recalled other people having the same discussion. So, I am able to point, but not help.

    Read some here:

    I have used both instamapper and blackberry tracker. The blackberry tracker has a application that you can put on facebook now so your friends can track.

    Both work well though.
    Also, if you ask your question by submiting it on that very same thread it will move the subject to the top again and maybe you can get some help from someone who has successfully accomplished this. It's a great idea, this tracking to Myspace, Facebook or Google Maps would be cool. I hope you have some luck with getting a solution quickly.


    here are some links I searched that may help to get started on your own.... Also would be great if you post your success to the thread above...

    track blackberry gps facebook - Google Search

    track blackberry gps myspace - Google Search

    Edit:
    Here is something I just found...

    I'm on the road a bit, and I think it's neat that we (in theory) can see where each other is... Thanks for giving me something to think about though!
