    I see there is an app like this out there, but it doesnt run in the background, which I assume would need to be jailbroken to enable this. I'm going to try gps tracker later and see how well it works...but something automated so I can have tomtoms app running in the foreground would be awesome. This gps tracker might require the iphone for online updates...

    I plan on attaching my touch to my motorcycle this summer...

    I would love to have a location tracking, and mapping app. Since the tomtom car kit charges the touch, I'm not against jail breaking or whatever is needed to let the app run in the background while the dock is connected.

    To make use of the tracking, I'd like to be able to export the map points and overlay it on a map, such as google maps...also once updates to an online map, or maybe even facebook once a wifi connection is found would be slick.

    I don't know what is/isn't possible here, but it would be cool to track which roads I have and haven't been down over time.
