In order to get one you need to get a free user account on www.openfindme.com. Once you have logged in, clicking on "New device" will give you a unique identifier that you should use to configure your client application At the same time your device is connected to the gps it will be sending the location to OpenFindMe so you can see on the website your gps track in real time.
OpenFindMe relays on an open protocol so everyone can write third parties application to integrate them with the website.
