iphone tracker

A friend of mine was talking about how your iphone keeps a record of everywhere you've been and then another sent me a link showing how to have a look:

but it's only for Macs.

However, you can have a look on a PC thus:


  1. Download SQLite browser from http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqlitebrowser/files/sqlitebrowser/, extract the files and run SQLite Database Browser 2.0 b1.exe


  2. Find your latest iphone backup folder in C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup


  3. Open a command prompt (Start > All Programs > Accessories)


  4. Run the following command: findstr /M CellLocation C:\Users\Andykn\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\[latest backup folder]\*.*


  5. In the SQLite browser select File > Open and browse to the file found in the previous step.


  6. Select the "Browse data" tab and use the "Table" drop down to select "CellLocation".
