    How does Google Latitude work?

    So I've been trying to figure out how this app works for a while but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do a simple thing like add a friend.

    From what I've gathered, latitude let's you track a persons location as long as they make it voluntarily accessible. My wife and I are trying to set this up so we can check in with each other. We drive a lot for work and like to make sure each of us get to our destinations safe.

    I've tried sending her an invite to both her yahoo and gmail address thinking since its a Google phone we should use the gmail account we had to setup to use this phone in the first place. She tried sending me invites as well. Even after the invites neither one of us pops up on the others contacts in latitude...

    Thoughts?

    i think it only works with gmail accounts.

    mine was pretty easy to setup. i logged in, it showed me some friends who have it and i accepted one and deleted the others.

    if she is logged in you should be able to go to lattitude, menu, add friends, add via email address (use gmail)

    you wont be able to follow them in realtime but it works pretty well.

    Hmmm... Guess I'll try out the "glympse" app. Seems like it does the same thing but in real time.

    Been using it a while with my trucking friends. Neat to see what part of the country they're in.
