VGA 640x480 landscape screen size displays just received own location


This message is displaying, while you try to get current own location, or receive someone's external location more than one time daily in freeware version.



Menu functions:

  Before you send SMS request to someone's phone, you have to set the target number. You can write the number manually, or select from your Contacts (see below the screenshot of dialog).

The last 3 numbers are saved and displayed on the left menu. You can delete any number by using the right menu options.


Normally, when target phone cannot connect to GPS Receiver, or doesn't see satellites, it will do nothing. But if you want to be alerted in this situation, you can check "...with error report". If the target device doesn't recognize current location within 3 minutes, it will reply to you with some error reason message.

  You can zoom up and down the map image.

Enlarging 3 times zoom is making internally in your device.
To do that, you can use the right menu, press the ACTION button, or tap the screen on the map.

The larger factor of zooming needs download the map image again from the Internet.


Additionally, at any time, you can reset or restore both your and external someone's location.
