    GpsGate.com Puts Your Buddies in Their Place

    New Service for Windows and Windows Mobile Pocket PCs Enables You to Spot
    Friends' Locations in Real-Time

    Stockholm, Sweden (January 17, 2007) - Franson Technology has launched
    GpsGate.com, a GPS mapping portal designed to enable people to share their
    locations from their Windows laptop or Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC device
    with anyone they have personally approved to "spot" them online.



    GpsGate.com offers a great new way for a group of friends or colleagues
    to synchronize their lives for work or fun. Anyone that belongs to the same
    group can share their current location with the others in their group.
    By logging in to GpsGate.com, users will be able to see their buddies
    moving in real-time on a map. To share their position with others in their
    group, they simply need to install GpsGate software on their Windows laptop
    or Windows Mobile Pocket PC. This software will enable them to share their
    GPS signal so that it can be received by fellow group members.
    GpsGate also offers a Google Earth plug-in so that friends' locations can
    be spotted on a satellite image rather than a map.

    "Our aim for GpsGate.com is to provide a central portal for broadcasting
    your location for a specific group of friends or work colleagues, and for
    you to be able to 'spot' them as well," said Johan Franson, president of
    Franson Technology. "GpsGate.com is more than just a fun way to keep track
    of the people in your life-it offers very practical solutions for both work
    and personal purposes. In the near-term, our plans are to enable users to
    integrate parts of GpsGate.com to their own homepages so they can broadcast
    a sailing boat competition, for example, or allow friends and family to
    track you on your family trip."

    The company also plans to add business tools to GpsGate.com, such as the
    ability to track delivery trucks or field service technicians.
    The software for Pocket PC and Windows to send your position costs USD
    29.95 per user with a 14 day free trial. The web site GpsGate.com is free.

    Since 2003, Franson Technology has been developing and marketing quality
    applications for GPS users, as well as location-aware technology for

    Did you use a dedicated server for this? Also, if you dont mind, how did you get it to work with MapPoint?

    Thanks!
