    I have been looking at the various options to “share maps” and believe it could be a useful option for our motorcyle touring group – we often get split up!

    Sending one’s position to a fellow PE app user or via a web link using SMS, would be especially convenient as texting often works in areas of weak mobile coverage

    Having experimented with these options may I suggest that a centre crosshair be included to positively locate the sender? As it stands the receiver has to estimate where the map center, and therefore the sender’s position, is

    I think a sender’s crosshair adds extra functionality which is not really necessary I think, because you can share a pin to do exactly what you are describing. By creating a pin of your current location and sharing the pin via SMS (pe link). The name of the pin, the selected color and icon is send over. (@geomagik: The Note is not shared though, which would be a nice feature.)

    I agree that when sending a map center location it would be nice if a pin is created at the receiving end. Just like entering a co-ordinate.

    @geomagik: It would be nice if you’re able to select the current position by tapping the position dot/arrow. By selecting the position dot it becomes a ‘floating’ pin which could be shared like a pin, and while moving you can see the actual street name in the info panel. Also, you could optionally show the GPS Info panel only when the position dot is selected…
