InstaMapper is a free real-time GPS tracking service. Use it to track an iPhone online, share your location with friends and family, and record tracks for later analysis.

Free registration is required. See http://www.instamapper.com/iphone for more details.


- Track your phone on Google Maps from the Internet. Positions are updated as often as every 5 seconds.

- Record up to 100, 000 positions per device.

- Embed a map with your current location on a web page, blog, or your Facebook profile page.

- Export position data in CSV and KML formats.

- Access data programmatically via an API.


Because of limitations imposed on third-party applications by Apple, GPS Tracker must run in the foreground to transmit position data. Expect about 5 hours of continuous tracking on one battery charge.

iPod Touch works only in some places in the US. Be sure to set the accuracy threshold to "Any" in settings.



What's New in Version 1.2.2

- Fixed speed reporting in OS 2.2

Pretty much perfect!

In spite of a few grumbles by folks who don't understand the limitations of the platform, this is an excellent app. My son drove from college to his grandparents house yesterday, and my wife and I watched his progress on our big screen TV, complete with satellite background imagery. We were able to follow him from door to door without a hitch. All for free. How can you complain about that? (Incidentally, I bought a Zoombak prior to finding this app and ended up returning it). So, for those who want background operation - well, who doesn't ? But Apple says no, so complain to them.

Thanks Instamapper, you have produced one of my top three favorite iPhone apps !

5/5 stars

I'd pay for this app.

I took an 8 day road trip and used this app along with the embedded map on my blog and the app functioned flawlessly for me. The map in my blog was always up to date, so much so that friends would call me and ask about whatever location I was in at that moment.

Also, the website let's you export your gps data which can then be loaded onto Google Earth to display your whole path, which is very cool for a posterity-type thing.

I wish the app could run in the background, but that's no fault of the developers; that's an Apple issue.

I can't say enough about this app and how simple it was to use and how much more interactive it made my trip for my friends and family who followed along. I would've payed money for this app for sure. And I'll certainly be using it on all my road trips.

4/5 stars

works well for intended use

This app works great for tracking someone on an outing. I launch it and stuff it in my running belt when i'm on a long run. this allows my wife to track where i am (or know when i'm coming by in a race) in case i need help, or just to see how much longer i'll be out on my run. this can be done either on the website, or on her cellphone.

yes, it would be nice if it ran in the background, but no iphone/ipod app can run in the background.
