Recycling mobile could be first step to enjoying location app

Recycling an old mobile and updating to an Android model could be a wise and enjoyable move if made by cyclists, runners and walkers.

Chris Nguyen, author of the Google Mobile Blog, explains Team HTC-Columbia is using a special version of the My Tracks app to inform people of their progress at the current Tour de France.

And those who love to explore the great outdoors could do the same thing on their next trek, expedition or journey.

With many Android-powered smartphones, people can alert friends and family of their location thanks to the app and the Google Latitude and Google Public Location Badge functions, states the writer.

Meanwhile, those who wish to keep up with the Tour de France can head to the search engine's website, where data on position, speed and heart rate is available.

The Tour de France will end in central Paris on July 25th, following 20 stages of cycling.
