    Hm Im having some difficulties with this little app.

    Im trying to send a sms with a keyword (getgps) to the phone and it should return coordinates/location. I used a guide (Locatephone) from their wiki but it doesnt work, sure it sends the sms and i recieve one with coordinates 0,0.

    Seems im not the only one with the problem either, surely I tried other guides as well but either im a complete idiot, blind or the step/function doesnt exist.


    Could anyone help me out here? Someone with better skills then me :)

    but getting coordinate with text is not accurate, because it doesn't active your smartphone's GPS.

    it does if its rooted and if you're using apps like theft aware or other.

    Coordinates are not recieved using text but gps and the gps coordinates are sent via text(sms)
    but well I bought theft aware.
