GPS Track connects to a GPS and records the path that you travel. Tracks can be uploaded to a web site, sent by email, transferred via Bluetooth, or written to a flash memory card. Google Maps and Google Earth are used to view the tracks. File formats such as GPX and CSV are also supported.

- J2ME (Java 2 mobile edition)
- Java API for Bluetooth (JSR-82)
A GPS with Bluetooth is also required.

Q: How do I load this software on my phone?
A: Here are 4 possibilities:
- Start your WAP browser and enter the address qcontinuum.org/gpstrack/gpstrack.wml
- Start your WAP browser and enter wap.getjar.com, select "Quick Download", enter code 9125.
- If you have a cable to connect the phone to your PC, then use your phone vendor's software to copy GpsTrack.jar to the phone. GpsTrack.jad may also be required to be copied.
- If your phone is Bluetooth capable, you may be able to use the OBEX file transfer protocol to copy GpsTrack.jar to your phone.
Q: What types of GPS will GPS Track work with?
A: GPS Track should work with any GPS that supports BlueTooth. I have tested GPS Track with the following GPS receivers:
Q: What types of cell phones will GPS Track work with?
A: Any phone with Java, Bluetooth, and the Java API for Bluetooth. See the J2ME Polish list of Java phones with Bluetooth support. See GPS Track Statistics for a list of phone and GPS models that have uploaded tracks.
Q: Is it possible to see the map directly on the phone?
A: No. You may want to check out Mobile GMaps if you are interested in this feature.
Q: Can I connect a GPS to my phone directly with a serial
cable rather than using BlueTooth?
A: GPS Track should supports this, but I am unable to test the feature because I do not have a cell phone with an RS-232 port. Please try this if you can and let me know if it works for you.
