Share Your iPhone’s Location With Friends
So, you have an iPhone and apart from the many different apps you can download and things you can do with your iPhone, you can also share your current GPS location with your friends. I’m about to show you a tutorial for doing just that.
Note: You will need to have at least OS 3.0 installed for this to work.
It’s actually quite simple, you can do this using either an iPhone or an iPod Touch.
- Using the iPhone or iPod Touch click on the App Store
- Click Search
- Type in Navizon Lite
- Click on Navizon Lite
- Click on Free and then click Install
Push the home button and then launch the Navizon App. If you haven’t created a Navizon account yet, you can do it from the first screen or enter an existing account.
Once you are logged in, click on Settings and change Appear Visible to On, this will update your location every 10 minutes. If you want your friends to be able to text you with a keyword at any time to find out your location then turn on Locate-by-SMS and set the specific keyword to trigger the location.
To add your friends click on Buddies on the bottom right hand corner of the App and then click the + icon on the top right corner, enter your email address and your friends email address. An email will be sent with a link to accept your invitation. Once accepted, your friend will appear in your list.
What if you want to share your location with someone who isn’t using Navizon? or doesn’t have an iPhone? Stay tuned for my next article on updating your FireEagle location with Navizon.
