Gotta' get Bulletflight from Knights Armament (at the AppStore).

The mid level version is fine, top level is ridiculous.

The fun part is having it log in for the local wind speed & weather...

Bulletflight PDF Manual (http://www.knightarmco.com/bulletflight/images/bullet%20flight/manual.pdf)

The final option allows one to automatically download current weather. For automatic weather gathering, you generally must have an
iPhone which is GPS equipped, though under some conditions an iPod with network connectivity may work. When you select to
acquire weather, you must wait for it to return a value or time-out. This may take as long as 30 seconds. Because you location is
transmitted to a non-secure Internet service, you may wish to not use this option if your current location is confidential.

I use Motion X GPS, the full $2.99 version, for an iPhone Nav App. Or the iPhone Maps app works pretty well.

Handy Level
Get Baseball Superstars 2010 and get a Garmin for a GPS if it is needed for navigating in traffic...

Get a Blue tooth stereo for your car with Mic...My Iphone hooks up to my car stereo and I use it as hands free. The stereo came with a mic that is tucked away from eye sight and when the phone rings, it picks up after two rings and I start talking. I travel a lot on the road so this is a must. My iphone also controls my car stereo and my iphone for tunes on my iphone. So I just bust out a playlist and play and my iphone activates my stereo. All without wires (the mic is wired but that is behind dash board).

Droid is a game too late.

Samsung Galaxy S then, it's a much better device. Google Latitude for GPS tracking.

Did you buy the new iPhone 4 ? If so, you're really gonna enjoy it!

Apps? I have the 3Gs and only 174 of the most crucial life support apps. Look for an app you can run in the background that will track your phone 24-hours. LOCK your phone after you end a call, and get in the habit of locking it always. in that way, your stolen phone will allow you to track it, and the thief will not be able to shut off the tracking app. What you do with him when you catch up with him is entirely up to you!

No personal offense, but this whole smartphone craze is a sucker deal... do you really want to be tracked 24/7 by GPS. i am not paranoid, just not wanting to be that easily found...? new phones are super cool, but my laptop is better, if you only have a phone, u still end up needing/using a laptop... WTF

My phone is for talking... and my computer is for all else, and my phone gets my puter free internet by free but restricted means when i'm out and about. I cant help but question the rediculous cost we all pay for "GADGETS"??

I generally keep the tracking services, GPS, turned OFF.

Sucker deal... Of the moment? Folks are getting off cheap!

Crazes could be about Hot Rods, Pony Cars, ATVs, Laptops, Lugers, Parabellums or iPhones...

(My relative in Ohio had an alleged best Luger/Parabellum collection within the USA.)

Phones are a relatively inexpensive way for one to express their individuality.

What's interesting is how the phone supplants the car in modern urban society.

Cars still rule dagnabbit! This is America... (Go Giants?)

Almost TEN MILLION views...

:laugh: "Um. It can. I... It can, um." ???
:laugh: " I need a white one. Hello? I need one now please. Can you waive the activation fee? Does it come with a case." ???
:laugh: "My sister said Walgreens."

(This is one of the funniest, and most covert, virals to date. Bravo...)

No offense to the OP, I'm on my FIFTH iPhone. Lost one to a moist cooler in HA, the rest stolen due to my naivete'.

(A good friend works in mobile device software development down in SD, they sell SW to ALL the majors worldwide... Talk about planned obsolescence... Phones are in for a ride!)

(My relative in Ohio had likely the best Luger/Parabellum collection in the USA.)

Screw the iPhone haters!!! Haters hate. Yeah. Woo!

You're already tracked by the cell towers, they constantly triangulate your position. In fact you don't even need to have the GPS enabled to use the towers for location services. Also, in order to be tracked you have to set up your phone to broadcast your position, although the police can already see this data with a court order.
