    Talking Prototype Solution

    All,

    Sorry for the delay, but my friend was doing a rally and wanted the same type of app, so I was focused on that. If you want, take a look at what I built and let me know if this is something others would want or be interested in. The application runs on SD and uploads location information to a web service much like the other services mentioned, except I also take a screen capture from one of the pc cameras connected and upload that to display with the location pin. The solution will also zoom into bird's eye view, if there are maps available.

    You can see the end of the rally run since it only shows the last 50 locations currently at http://www.tucson-bangers.com

    (Yes it is a real site and I didn't name it!) ;0)

    Once on the site, click the Rally Tracker tab.

    If this looks like something anyone would be interested in, let me know as I haven't decided whether it is worth the effort to try to make it public.

    Later,
    PCKScout

    So any more work on this now that we hear SD will still be around? I looked at about 10 other solutions but none really work easily and automatically. I was hope for an SD plugin.

    Question Are there other takers

    TinSoldier,

    I haven't pushed this further since I didn't know where SD was going. Now that it is going forward, I think this would be a good app to put forward. My only question is whether SD plug-ins will work the same with the new version. If there is interest, I will push this forward and release it publically.

    Are there others that would use this?
