  • Live car tracking ?

    ok.. I'm still working on FreeDrive, at the moment i'm trying to figure out how the fav dat files are made up and how to write a import / edit / delete program for them.. I am getting somewhere.. but its slow at the mo. I have sussed most out, just got to do the long / lat and how they are stored.

    Anyway... I would like to also include a live tracking option. This would work via a modem on your carputer.. say a gprs connection would be better as it could be always on.

    My basic idea would be.
    Every 5 mins, Freedrive trys to access a website (also done by me)..
    The access url which freedrive would create would hold your username / long / lat / speed

    so this would look something like

    www.freedrive.co.uk/tracking.php?u=cdrskull&lo=51.34234322&la=-2.54323444&s=43
    now.. this is all the infomation that you would need.. the php on the server would then log your details with a time and date. You would then be able to access this anytime you want through freedrives site. I would of cause encrypt the url so others cant spoof details.. anyway I dont think this would take much programming..

    let me know

                I have done exactly that but with a third party app basically a small client that connected to the SDK on MM (when I was using that), and sent the data over through a PHP page on my site...

                if you can make the URL changeable it would be amazing!

                but I think the other stuff from the Requests thread are far more important in making it really "useable" and comparable to OEM systems...

                Thanks!
