How does POI66.com work?
With the POI66 app you send an SMS to POI66.com's mobile number (not charged extra) containing your coordinates. POI66.com is a non-profit and free of charge website that allows you to track you on your trips. Every trip is called an album. You can create as many as you want. Each album contains a series of waypoints, shown on a Google Map. This map you can include in your home page.
Before using the app, you have to do two things, also without extra cost.
√ Create a user account by sending "USER yourusername" to +316 381 57 313
√ Create an album by sending "ALBUM youralbumname" to +316 381 57 313
Both username and album should be ismple text with just a-z and 0-9 characters, allowing - and _ characters. Later you can create a fancy fullname and album title. See also the POI66 FAQ.
Once you have an album (let's say "paris-2012") on POI66.com you can access it through a browser using http://paris-2012.poi66.com and there you will find your map and route.
You need Android 2.1, a few 100 kbytes internal storage, 10 Mbyte RAM, and access to SMS.
We kindly request these Android permissions during installation:
√ Send SMS message: for warning the user. No other messages are sent.
√ Internet: the help pages in the application are streamed from this website. This is also used for the extra commands to the website, such as getting help pages, setting up an album, getting POI66 configuration data, getting location data and getting other people's locations around you. The extra commands are only used by your request and all data sent and received is kept to a minimum to save cost. No other internet pages are used. No information is sent to any other party.
√ GPS location: without this, nothing will work :-)
