iPhone Location-Based Programming Course - 2 Feb 2010 (Tue)

Phew! I am finally done with the course materials for the iPhone LBS course on 2 Feb 2010. It is going to be a lot of fun and this is what you will learn:

* How to use Core Location to get location information
* How to create your own compass app
* How to log your locations as you move
* How to display the Google Maps using MapKit
* How to track your location by sending your location data to a back end server running Bing Maps (realtime!).
* How to create a rotating map as you turn
* How to create annotations on the map
* How to use the Google Maps API in your native App

Register now if you have not done so!

Without writing an Android app, is there an alternate way to send my current GPS location to my Apache server that's sitting at home?

I used my G1 browser to connect to my home Apache server and dumped out all $ENV variables, hoping to see a Latitude/Longitude somewhere in there, but no such luck.

Is there a way to enable the G1's browser to report Lat/Long to web servers? I'm willing to live with the "security risk" of other snoopy websites out there knowing where I am at the moment.
Thanks!
