    Post vehicle location to internet / google earth ?

    Attention all you coders/programmers. I am looking for some help and willing to pay for it.

    I am contractor for a large POS installation company. I am looking to take a trip across the US and have my company tell me where the jobs are close to me. What I need is for something that works in SD so I don't have to jump out to check/configure, that can post my whereabouts to either google earth somehow, or my web site via some sort of map.

    I have seen programs that work like this before, but I have never successfully gotten anything to work.

    The program would have to be able to update constantly if it had an internet connection, or if no connection is available it would have to post as soon as one became available.

    Any takers?

    TinSolder...I have been thinking about setting this up myself and figure if people want something like this, it could be done using a web service which could receive location updates from the car pc. We could either create a simple SD MOD or a windows app to send the updates when the internet connection is available.

    We'd need to determine where the web service could sit that collects the data, but I could house it on my personal site to begin with and we could figure out where to go from there.

    Let me know if this sounds like something that would work for you and I could work with you to do some tests.

    Thanks,

    I have servers since I am in the computer business. I saw something once that used Google maps to post location. The guy who owns the bug (bugbyte or ibug or something) had in his car. I could put up space for the data no prob.

    Mologogo is what you want. Go to their site and buy the phone preloaded with the application. They can track you on the site if you make your location public. You can also forward your location and past tracks to a map like I've done. It takes a little knowledge and a net domain account to do it.

    Cost: Phone about $70, you have to sign up for a Boost mobile account and load it with minutes. About $10 a month max.

    That's the zero config option. Just make sure the phone is running the app and you have a beacon people can see on the web.

    You can also forward your location to w3bMa5t3r's site using Mologogo or you can have Road Runner do it. Go here to find out how.

    I have experience publishing data to Google Maps and Google Earth. Have you found what you're looking for, or do you still request that someone do some work for you?
