Hi all, I currently use the DeLorme GPS unit, with the DeLorme serial emulator, so that I can use it with the Bill Gates Is My Daddy streets and trips software.
I can constantly being asked by my boss as to my travel progress and would like to find a program that would email my GPS location or update to a website. I have Tmobile Internet so conectivity while on the road is not a problem.

anyone know of any program that might do this?

I know it's possible. But the only problem is that I only know how to do it with a Garmin eTrex.

Basically, I'll save my location as a waypoint, upload that to the laptop via serial or USB, run it through GPSBabel to convert it to a Google Earth KML file, and then email it to whoever wants to see my location via Google Earth.

See if you can pull off something similar with your setup.
