GSPed has been a bit quiet recently since they became part of SHAPE Services. We have mentioned their app a few times in the past as a way to track your GPS location online. They even let you share your location with Facebook, MySpace, & Twitter.
GPSed just let me know that they have just added a new feature called GPSed monitoring. It lets you monitor single or multiple devices on a map kind of like Google’s free Latitude feature. GPSed is more targeted at the enterprise or people trying to track relatives or children instead of friends though both could be used for similar purposes.
I guess it is good to have options but it looks like real time tracking is not free like it is with Google Latitude. On the other hand you do get support from GPSed along with more detailed information like speed and status.
If you are interested you can check out their GPSed Monitoring Service at this link. Let me know if you do!
