Instamapper GPS Tracker


This app no longer works. The Instamapper service was shut down December 13th, 2012

Several people have requested an app that can track your phone on a map. Boostapps reader Clark recommended Instamapper which works perfectly. It runs in the background on the phone and you can view where the phone is  and where it’s been on a Google Map by visiting (free registration required)  with a PC browser, Bolt or Opera Mini. (Bolt seems to do a better job with the Instamapper site than Opera.)

The version posted here was designed specifically for iDEN phones and gets a GPS fix very quickly (under 30 seconds outdoors) on my i776.

Data Connection Required: Yes

Supported Boost iDEN phones: All Falcon Series with Java (i290, i335, i465, i776, i856, i9, etc)

Supported Boost CDMA phones: None

File Size: 18 KB

Downloading uses paid data. Downloads are for Java ME phones only.

    How can you locate someone else even though they did not ask you to share

    • Dennis says:

      You can’t locate someone without their permission with this or any other app and that’s a good thing. How would you like it if any creep could stalk you?

    dennis,is there a app similar to this 1? you helped me a great deal with this app on my clutch,now we have kyocera hydros.please help

    • Dennis says:

      Google Latitude is built into Google Maps on Android. Launch Maps, tap the layers icon, tap lattitude and enable location sharing with the people who you wamt to be able to track your phone.

      dennis do i have my settings wrong? my phone shows exact location but my wifes is 8 blocks off and she is sitting right next to me. and thank you for all the help,im lost without your help

    • Dennis says:

      It sounds like your wife’s phone hasn’t locked on to a GPS fix and is using coarse location based on the nearest cell tower. If it’s an Android phone check that Settings > Location & security > Use GPS satellites is checked. If it is checked see if the phone will give an accurate location after sitting stationary outdoors for a few minutes.
