Gumball 3000 tracking via the Internet

The Gumball drivers can be tracked online using a service which maps the location of each car via a GPS receiver in each car along with some software that either runs on a mobile phone or PDA.

It's a handy system which is probably in use by courier companies for example but having it in use on the Gumball is good. Some drivers have switched it off because there are reports that various police forces are using it to help them catch drivers going over the local speed limits in various countries.
