Just downloaded "Family Tracker" to my wife's and my i-phones last week and happy to say, it works great and exactly as the article claims as a possibility in the future. Once downloaded one picks contacts they wish to locate during setup. A ping is sent to the selected iphone and once authorization is granted, their position comes up on google maps. One drawback though is that a ping must be authorized each and every time you want an update. I love my wife and the intent is not to check up on her, I don't have to, but what about the scenario of an accident or other circumstances where the party you're trying to get a fix on can't authorize your ping for reasons beyond their control?? It's a dangerous and scary world out there.

I've been awaiting something like this for a long time, it's been many a time the wife has called and asked me to give her directions when she didn't even know where she was at, something like this would go a long ways in being able to help her find her way around...
