    GPS Tracking

    Advertisement



    I have a small business with just 4 employees. They each have BB's. I pay them for their mileage. Is there a GPS tracking app that I can OTA install with out actually having the device in my hands? Is there such an app that runs in "the background" or passivly without the user knowing? I'm wondering because one of my employees though not "stealing miles" is, I suspect sitting at home or at his girlfriend's house when he is supposed to be "on the clock".

    Which BlackBerry devices and through which carrier.....I know I saw something not to long ago that may be along the lines of what you are looking for......but it was for a certain carrier, but there may be others. And not all BBs have built in GPS.......

    With more info from you someone may be able to point you in the right direction.....

    i looked into that, but it requires you to have the device in your hand to install and the user has to turn the app on/off. I need to be able to monitor remotely and passivly without the user nessicarily knowing they are being tracked. The more I think about it I would love to do this with my teen's BB!! Not to be nosey of course, but to know where he may be if I call and he doesn't answer for a while.

    I don't think you can remotely install anything on BIS

    You would have to put it on the device, whatever you find....

    correct, this should not be possible. at least not from your side. but i think your provider can do this ...

    Your provider or a law enforcement agency can do this, but theres no way for you to do it by yourself even though you pay the bill.

    You'll have to go another route... check out trackingkey dot com.
