Can you stalk me?

So my new SPOT GPS device seems to be transmitting really well. Now I just need to find a widget so that interested people, (my parents and nephews), can track my progress while I'm on the Un-Road Trip. So here's the plan. I'm going to fill this post with widgets, and let's all make a decision about which one we like best.

I'll start with blogloc. It can create this cool 2 part map, but unfortunately it's not interactive so you can't zoom in or move around the map. It also only pinpoints my most recent coordinates and doesn't plot my route.

Blogloc also makes one with an interactive map, but it doesn't include the world map, and it still only displays my most recent coordinates.

Then there's the SPOT Trip Manager, which puts together a nice Google map with my route and a little green biker at my most recent coordinates.

So what do you think? Which one is easiest to stalk me on? I wish I could somehow combine the first and last widget so I can display my route, but also have a mini map of North America with my location flagged. Does anyone know how to do that?

I like the last one, now that I can't see it I can't recall what it was called Spot Trak. The one with the green biker, cause that's just kinda cool.

Hope to see you when you are in the New Orleans area.

Definitely the second one!
Chris thinks so too.
