Share Your Location with Here for Windows Mobile
Have you ever been out and about, only to discover a fun new place? Perhaps you’re stuck in a bad part of town and want to arrange for someone to pick you up. Whatever the case, there are plenty of occasions in which being able to send your exact location quickly and easily proves beneficial.
While there are more than a few ways and dozens of apps to do this on everyone’s favorite green robot, performing the same task on Windows Mobile generally proves to be a little more difficult. However, thanks to Here by XDA forum member ppclike, this no longer the case.
Further differentiating it from other solutions, it does one task and it does it well—GPS location. In other words, Here does not involve social networking and does not require registration. It simply sends your recipients an SMS or Email with your mapped coordinates.
Windows Mobile users looking to get started in easier location sharing should proceed to the application thread. Those who still prefer the native Google Maps application for Windows Mobile can obtain the latest version on the official Maps site.

This year, cardboard returned...
