JGUI's recently released GPS.Friend allows you to find your friends, child or whoever as long as your friend is also carrying a GPS-enabled Windows Mobile smartphone, running GPS.Friend.
GPS.Friend allows you to get your current GPS location and asks someone's phone for his/her location as well, to match both locations. If that someone has Windows Mobile phone with GPS.Friend installed too and and the GPS receiver is working, the phone will reply with the location and GPS.Friend is able to displays the location on a map, even with calculated distance. This reply is always made under the phone's owner permission but the owner can also allow to reply automatically without any further notice.

GPS.Friend has simple and intuitive interface. You get your own location and ask someone, with only two taps on your phone device. Just set the target phone number or select from your Contacts. GPS.Friend is independent from pre-installed map images, because it downloads the necessary map from Google Maps service and location information are exchanged between the phones by SMS text messages.

GPS.Friend works with Windows Mobile Professional (touchscreen) and Standard (non-touchscreen) smartphone and supports all screen resolutions.

GPS.Friend is freeware, at least until you want to get own current location, or ask someone, only one time a day. The full version with unlimited location requests is available for 17.25 Euro (for the first license) and 9.95 Euro for every additional license (which makes sense since you need at least two licenses to make it useful. Otherwise you can use Google Maps Mobile).

Cheers ~ Arne

When you say "they released" what do you mean? Where can we find it?

Handango and PocketGear (their supposed partners) don't have it. Handango doesn't even seem to be their partner any more.

When I visited their site (it was years since the last time), I only found some VERY confusing pages, many dead links, many programs that do almost the same job (!), but no "gps.friend".

Can you help?
(Also why don't you inform them of my mail? Maybe they'll explain the condition of their site and why they have so many programs that do almost the same ALL sold at the same time!)
