    Web Based GPS Tracking

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I decided to write a web-based application that would talk to my Blackberry and receive its GPS coordinates. Then you can see on a map on your computer the exact position of the phone. It also does some cool stuff such as letting you see a predefined interval of GPS coordinates(i.e if you want to see the phone's path on a map for the day before, or certain hours, etc,.). I just wrote it yesterday but I'd like to have some people help me test it out, so if anyone is interested just PM me. I still have lots of features to add, but this does the basic tracking.

    Basically the process for getting it set up goes like this:

    Go to the web site and sign up and create a username/password.
    Download the OTA application on your phone and the login with same username/password.
    The application will begin sending GPS data to the web application.
    Login to the site from anywhere to see the map data.

    Check out the site at " bb [dot] tech9computers [dot] com "

    Let me know comments/suggestions.

    Sounds cool I might try it but I'm afraid it might be a virus

    Don't worry it's not a virus. I may not have credibility here, but I have made mobile phone apps in the past...

    Is this program along the lines of Mologogo? I'm always interested in trying out programs like this.

    Smile Re: Web Based GPS Tracking

    Hi,

    Sound great because I'm looking for a tool to track my running and cycling exercices (I practice triathlon), and many of them crashed.

    BBtracker is installed on my bby pearl today > no pb during this install.
    Spec: bb 8100 / v4.2.196 (plateform 2.3.0.78) / Orange carrier / France

    Ready to test. GPS is in charged at home. Will test this evening or tomorow.

    Feel free to PIN me because I can't send PM message for the moment.
    Thank

    Re: Web Based GPS Tracking

    Let me know how it works out for you. Right now it doesn't do anything fancy with the GPS data(just shows you a live image). I partially implemented showing the path you took during a 24 hour period(a day). If you go to "bb [dot] tech9computers [dot] com /track/day/ it will show you that.(cant post full url's, i guess i'm not stack 2 yet ) I need to implement other stuff such as distance traveled and various other things. I'll probably work on those tomorrow.

    I will most likely add this by having permissions that you can set for other users to view your GPS info.

    I've only tested it with Internal GPS but let me know how it works with a puck. If you get any errors let me know and I'll get it working with bluetooth pucks.

    Re: Web Based GPS Tracking

    I was a big fan of Mologogo when I had my 7100i. I'm anxious to get a Curve with GPS and try out this. Apparently, Mologogo just started supporting the 8703 I think. They're more into Motorola Nextels than anything else right now.
    I want a program that tracks me and can save a history that I can check at certain times. And that I can make public via the PC or Blackberry and turn off when I want. So I can let my website visitors see where I am. I'm totally open source like that.

    Re: Web Based GPS Tracking

    I loaded the 4.1 version in my 7100i yesterday and ran it for 8+ hours while I tooled around in my taxi. There were over 1500 readings when I got home and checked the history so I know the program works.

    Like someone else said, I'd like to have the ability to have a "read only" log in so that my friends can see where I am without being able to change anything.

    Maybe be able to click on the location marker and get some information like time and location and maybe be able to set some landmarks.

    Re: Web Based GPS Tracking

    - Could it be possible to put our login and password once and the software remember our id? each time I use the soft, I have to put my id?
    - Is it possible also on your website to have the Distance Traveled in kilometer also?

    Thank
