Supposed to find your lost or stolen device. If GPS was turned off (most of the time) localisation can be 3500m approximative... :-(

Works great, surprised there hasn't been a review in a year Works great with my older Incredible phone (my wife's too). The only issue is when you bring up the map, there's no 'pin' to show the location, you just assume that the phone's location is the middle of the screen. Still, fairly accurate, more so than others I've tried. I don't have a data plan, so this is a cheap way to locate a phone

Useful as a device/property tracker This i a great way to turn an android into a lost or stolen property tracker on a simple prepaid SIM. To share location with friends and family, use Google Latitude built into Maps. It is better for that.
