LInking to m.ups.com?

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-12-25
Trying to make a simple link to UPS's mobile website with a tracking number. Have figured out how to do it to their regular website:

http://wwwapps.ups.com/etracking/tracking.cgi?tracknum=<tracking number>

However need to link to their mobile site (and their regular website doesn't seem to see that I'm on a phone):

http://m.ups.com/ ???

Any ideas? I have spent way too much time trying to figure this out :(

Dang, that worked! I contacted them after I posted and they stated it was their policy that people don't link to their website this way and instead program their own solutions using their API.  Developing a solution using their API would take me a long time to write.. Hopefully this will work long term but am ok if I have to deal with that later if they change their website as this isn't for a customer facing solution.

Thank you!

Yeah I did google for their API for you but when I didn't see any obvious mobile API with a good example, I decided against posting a link to them to not make you waste more time :)
