Google Locator for everyone

The Google Locator is this application we used during the trip to show our position on Google Maps in the blog (this blog) we were feeding from SailMail.
It is now available to whoever wants to use it, you just have to register.
To register, go to and fill out the form.
(All images below are clickable, to enlarge them)

Once this is done, you can use the Google Locator available in the Navigation Desktop. You need to set your Boat ID in the preferences

When you hit the button "Generate URL", the URL you need is in the clipboard.

You can paste it in an email, or use it as it is. Here is the kind of renderings it produces in a browser

You can try it for yourself.
