Free GPS Tracking Using Your Cell Phone.

My co-worker found a site that allows you to track most GPS-enabled cell phones, and I thought it was great!  It's easy to set up, and works with Blackberries, iPhone, and Android phones.  It will even work on some cheap pay-as-you-go phones, making it a cheap solution for a 24/7 tracker for your car (keep track of your teens).

The site is called InstaMapper.  Of course, if you're using a non-jailbroken iPhone, you won't be able to track it when it goes to sleep.  Remember that Apple just doesn't like background processes.

Let me know if you've used this service, how you liked it, thoughts on privacy, and perhaps some amazing stories involving InstaMapper.
