How to Use It
Simple, Open your Web Browser, and browse to the Indigo Web server. From the root of the web server add /findmyiphone.
The Plugin will then attempt to login to MobileMe, find your iPhone via the Find Your iPhone Service, and then compare your iPhone’s Lat & Long to the Latitude & Longitude in Indigo. It will then do some calculations, and give an estimate of the straight line (as the bird flies) distance between your target & current location.
This site, http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~cvm/latlon_find_location.html, contains information and links on finding your latitude and longitude, by street address, city, etc… Just plug the values in, and the script will take over from there…
