Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

So Kyle says to me, "I guess its pretty cool to see your location on a Google Map, and that's neat that it uses AJAX to populate the map so I don't have to see a nasty page refresh to see if your location has changed, but what I really want is to have it just automatically give me a new map when your location changes..."

So using a simple setInterval javascript function and a variable that is populated on the onkeyup event of a textbox, we made it happen.

Just enter the number of seconds you wish between refreshes, click "Set Auto Refresh" and enjoy the ride!

I gave Matt my Nextel this afternoon, so if you check it out here in the next half hour or so, you can see him on his way back from Topeka.
