Livetrack24lite is an Apple iPhone GPS tracking app from Freethinker, which has been created with hang glider and paraglider pilots in mind, although it can be used for many different activities.
With the software, switch the tracking on and your GPS coordinates are sent to LiveTrack24 where others can see your position in near time.
The latest release also supports airspace views, which adds an extra degree of usefulness for pilots.
Freethinker’s company head flies paragliders (and previous to that, hang gliders), and the idea to make an iphone client tracker was in part triggered by the disappearance of fellow pilot Scotty Marion in Switzerland in 2003. Scotty is still missing.
