I need to find a way to use a GPS cell phone to provide me with a stream of GPS data, as the holder of the phone travels around.  Has anyone had experience with this?  Could I use a Nextel API for example, to get the GPS information?  What other ways could I get the GPS information?

Do I need to write a Java program for the handheld which sends packets containing the GPS location over the web?

I'd love to hear from you if you know anything about this.
