Is it possible to have an flash map that will show the actual position of a car, person... using some kind of a tracking devise.
Something like they have in all these cop movies.

Real-life and real-time?

Doubt it very much... Maybe with Flash 22!

Thats one of the many things I'm working on right now... Its really not all that difficult but you need to do a lot of infrastructure on the backend to make it work.
You could read the device's current coords from a database via a web service or a simple chunk of XML -- do that every couple of seconds with setInterval () and you're basically done. The really tricky part is getting the coords for the device into the database in the first place.
