i was wondering if there is some kind of technology where i could track my garmin C330 unit on the internet? my son borrowed my system and left for phoenix, i'm in kansas city. i know there are devices you can put in the vehicle and it can be tracked this way. i just thought it would be interesting to see where he is. i got this strong feeling i have seen the last of that gps unit. oh well i've had it for week.
No, more or less impossible for the C330. There are specilized devices that allow tracking, but the C330 isn't one of them. If you were extremely good at hardware and software (both an electrical engineer and a programmer), and good at getting corporations to release their design schematics and software code, you could probably, after several months of hard work, build an interface for a cell phone and track that way.
Yeah, you can't do that. Your GPS receiver is just that a receiver. It doesn't transmit.
I would go the route of the cell phone! There are quite a few cell companies that allow you to track the phone gps signal via the internet. Mostly for parents watching children, but the service can be used for businesses. Cost extra of course.
thanks a bunch guys. it is just a matter of time, before big brother will know all our exact movements.
hi motorcycle mama, how do you like the garmin zumo 550? i'm looking for a system for my harley. you wouldn't know which is better the one harley sells or the zumo? they seem to be about the same price. i'm looking for something easy to use that i can program my own routes, any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks
I love my Zumo. The firmware updates have corrected some of the minor issues that were present at first. I don't know anything about the Harley GPS, but the Zumo is great for a bike. The case is made from fuel resistant materials. The screen is extremely bright even in bright sunlight. The touchscreen and left mounted buttons are easy to use. It's easy to make routes either on the unit itself or with MapSource. POI's load easily and are displayed on the map. It also comes with an auto mount so you can use it in your car.
You might want to check out the Zumo fun over at the Zumo forum.
I did considerable research on both the TomTom Rider and Zumo prior to purchasing the Zumo for my H-D Heritage Classic.
My wife and I ride by myself in the country exploring quite a bit. When I get back from a great ride (usually I don’t have a clue where I was) I download the tracks into Map Source and clean up the route. Things like the dead ends I turned down, pavement that turned into dirt, stuff like that.
Then I load the cleaned up route back into the ZUMO, and then lead some really great HOG Club rides.
Great unit, easy to operate.

It doesn't take that much. It just take a FCC license, a transmitter, and a connection to your GPS.
