    That's all you need to do. The web server at www.poi66.com will receive the
    sms text message and link that to your home page. Web visitors can go to
    your page and see where you are, where you were and who's close to you. The
    data is enriched with countries, cities, local currency and POIs/waypoints.

    Let's look what the camper-van (RV) group Kangaroo did in Africa:
    http://www.poi66.com/maps/show_album.php?album=hoppen

    They have enough mobile/GSM reception to send a daily text message by SMS.
    Their family checks their web site to see whether they are safe and what
    they do. They click the and drag map to see what's nearby and what road the
    drive.

    Pictures added will be visible, a guestbook is also provided. The latest
    local news is exchanged and people chat/communicate through the website.

    Should you be interested, visit www.poi66.com to see how you can travel by
    SMS (GPS2SMS). Prior to your trip you can download Waypoints and POIs in all
    popular formats for your GPS or Tomtom device. All filmlocations of Lord of
    the Rings? It's there, in New Zealand:

    All locations of the Aragon Medallions in Paris? Store them in your GPS and
    go hiking in Paris:

    See you soon on a map on your own homepage!
