Overview

  1. Create User Account
  2. Install Application
  3. Run Application

Create User Account

Goto the following URL, enter your user information, and hit "Submit."

http://www.wheresollie.com/installer/

Only a username, password, and email address are required. It is important to enter a valid email address because a link to the application download URL will be emailed to you. It is also recommended to use an email address that is accessible on your BlackBerry so you can simply click on the link from your BlackBerry email client to begin downloading.

Install Application

In your BlackBerry browser, go to the download URL that was emailed to you along with your user confirmation. This will automatically prompt you to begin downloading.

  • Click "Download"

Run Application

After you have downloaded the application, you can begin running the application immediately by clicking "Run" or you can select the Where's Ollie GPS Post icon from your application folder. The first time you run the application, you will be prompted to allow access to your GPS location information. Click "Yes". Once you have received a few valid GPS location updates, you will be prompted to allow a http connection to www.wheresollie.com. Click "Yes". In both prompts, you can check Don't ask this again so you can avoid the prompt the next time you start the application.

Once you have received valid GPS location updates and made an http connection, you can view your current location here:

Enjoy, Ollie
