    Hey guys,

    I'm getting an android and I was wondering if there was an App that would tie into the Android GPS and send an SMS to a specified contact when you have gone 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 to your destination. It would say something like, "Hey, I am passing through (insert town, city,etc here), I will be there in (insert ETA here)."

    If there is no program like this, can someone make one? It would be useful and help people stop txting while driving.

    Use voice text, it is safer and easier.

    Is it that imperative that the Waffle House knows you're in route?

    im sure you can use a tracker app, that they too can get on their phones, and it will tell them where on the map you are.

    Even easier. If they sign up to google+ then they can set you as a contact/friend and monitor your progress via google maps. All you need to do is have your gps (or wi-fi) on to give accurate location pings. I think you use google latitude for this.
