Secrets of the new Sports Tracker widget

Nokia's Sports Tracker has proved to be one of the must have GPS applications. It is now possible to share journeys recorded using Sports Tracker via the brand new Nokia Maps and Photography widget. Steve, in this feature, explains how it actually works and runs through the steps needed to get your own Sports Tracker powered widget up and running, including how to embed it in almost any web page and with a tweaked example formatted for wider blogs and pages.

Read on in the full article.

A trip round Checkers

Decided to give this a try after reading about it on here. Below is my first walk, 5 miles round checkers recorded on my 6120c using a BlueNEXT GPS receiver. Lost the signal a bit, not for the first time on this walk.

Thanks for commenting. Although note that the real thrust of the tutorial was about using and embedding the widget, i.e. *not* using the main Sports Tracker web site 8-)

Talking Thanks for that

Thanks for the comment on my comment, however I see that you didn't manage to get it working in the main article...

It seems not everyone can see the widget. Try clicking on where it should be and choosing Play not Loop. I get this in Firefox sometimes (I'll see if I can work out why).

I get absolutely nothing, just a big gap. I've tried clicking and it makes no difference. (using Firefox 2.0.0.14)

Got it working in Facebook, although you'll have to take my word for it.

Can you do more than one track on a picture? I.e. Sunday run in red, and Mondays run in blue. That would be extremely handy.

Looks like a page refresh will also make the widget appear for Firefox users.

Hmmm. At the bottom of the nokia PDF, it says go to www.sportstracker.com. And when you do, its blatently not a nokia site.

Anyone else getting this?

Also, there isnt actually any instructions on how to do it. Creating an account - yes, linking your phone with your account - yes, but nothing on how to actually show the route, or anything else for that matter. Did you do it by guesswork, or did you have a PDF that I couldnt find?

I have got a blank window so far, but I have no idea how to pick a route to display in it.
