    Anyone else using the Instamapper GPS Tracker? The instamapper.com website is down. Did they shutdown or is this just an outage?

    Yeah its down, looks like a DNS issue, because I can't resolve it. I hope it comes back soon... does this happen often?

    I just started using it this weekend, so my mom and I can see where my dad is during the week. (He is a truck driver.) He likes it to have incase something bad happens, we will be able to locate him. This is the first time I was going to get to see it in action, and its down. Bummer.

    The fact that the DNS entry is gone is not a good sign.

    One can only hope that they updated the ip address in the dns record, and it's propagating the new ip around the net.

    i have used in since May but never seen the site down-usually i get "service not available" when my phone is out of credit or something like that but never "server not found" as seen today.

    I wonder if they are reorganizing to return as a new for-fee service under another name, after analyzing the data collected so far, or is it possibly in financial trouble? I noticed they cut back storage space from storing tracks for 3 months to 1 month only-since the Summer, which could be a sign of dwindling funds...

    InstaMapper is seriously down. Both their DNS servers do not respond to any requests which is really bad since they are on two completely different networks. I can ping both DNS servers, but they both ignore all DNS requests. I have never seen a major outage of InstaMapper in over a year of using them. I wonder if they are stopping their free service.

    The service of instamapper is great. I'd probably pay for it if I had to...depending on what price of course. I would think they would have warned us or had something on their webpage about it if that's what was going on. Very strange!

    It appears the site is back up again. I'm able to log in, and track now.

    jdt1953, not sure what you're asking.
