Just came across this great app on Cydia (in Big Boss repo) called Navimote. It's made by Navizon (not to be confused with Navigon) which makes GPS software for various mobile platforms. navimote is free and provides an excellent means of tracking your phone. Here is how it works you install app from cydia. it enables a process that runs in the background. the process is dormant and does not drain much battery since it is not using any system resources You register online at http://www.navizon.com/products_navimote.asp and generate a token. You then input that token on the device and you are all set to track the phone, visit the website, log in and click next to your phone. It sends a PUSH notification to the device (it is silent, you get no message or prompt) that wakes up the Navimote service, gets the GPS location and updates the website I find it to be great tradeoff between locating your device and battery drain. P.S. i dont work for the company nor am compensated in any way.
