Remember the news about iPhone recording all the places where it goes? iPhoneTracker was developed to map the information when the iPhone is synchronized to a OSX machine. Handler Bojan ported it to Linux and named it iPhoneMap. I tested it myself on cygwin and works perfect.

You need to install the DBD-SQLite and DBI perl modules before executing the application. After the installation, go to C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup. You will find a directory about 41 chars long very similar to a SHA1 hash. Go inside that directory and execute inside the find_sqlite.py script. It will get you the name containing the GPS stored information. After that, issue the following command:

The windows version of this is located at http://huseyint.com/iPhoneTrackerWin/

A little inaccurate but still very interesting to see where one has travelled with the iphone.
