Can the Maps app display the position of my stolen Android phone?

JAY KNOWLES March 31, 2012

My Evo 4G has been stolen and I need to locate it. I still have the service on and it still has my Gmail as the primary Gmail. I don’t have any apps on it to locate it but I have it set up to use maps and Trapster. So is there any way to make the maps app display where the phone is?

      Hello, was there any app like PREY installed in the blackberry? If there was no application similar to that, it is almost impossible. If it was stolen/.lost at work, have you tried phoning to stolen phone? It might still be around.........

    perhaps if the new user  restarts Trapster then the application will retain the last location and use that as a starting point. 
    If Trapster doesn't have a previous location and the GPS hasn't got a location yet (from the network) they have to set an initial starting point.
    if you can acess Trapster then perhaps you will get an idea on where about the phone?

    Can Trapster help me find my stolen phone?
