A few days ago, I wrote about how I got hooked to the Sony Ericsson Z750i because of its GPS capability. I experimented with it a bit more today and I was really impressed at how it can be integrated with Google Earth and plot my travels/commute.
I did this integration using a 3rd party Java application called bbTracker. bbTracker is a small application that plots a course logged from the Z750i. Pretty useless in itself because it only displays some lines and coordinates on the phone's screen. But bbTracker has a feature that exports the plotted course to a file (either .KML or .GPX format) and that's where the fun begins. With the use of Google Earth, a user can import the file from bbTracker and see where he has been on Google Earth!Just this morning, I walked to my brother's house and used bbTracker. The .KML file I got from it was pretty accurate and I had a kick looking at the path I walked on Google Earth!
Oh, and did I say that this is my new obsession?
