    just had a quick look at this nice app... could it be possible to move the geofence options to the car like a setting that says: if car moved more than XX meters then trigger sms via skype and start uploading photo's at XX sec interval

    in this way you are not that much depending on beening at home

    and instead of using a homeserver why not be able to use a hosting company? most of them provide sql server and plenty of space for the photo's

    well so many questions.

    Firstly I use sqllite because its free. The whole app is complicated enough without setting up sqlserver. Also all the data is sent in real time if you have a broadband connection.

    A picture option has been half coded but not finished yet. You'll be allowed to add a picture along with every gps coord.

    The geofence fpr current location is also possible. The client will send a geofence flag to the server which will set up an automatic circle geofence around the car.

    If any geofence is broken then the server can be set to send an sms message to any number of phones but only by using skype.

    Your last comment about why dont I use other peoples servers etc is because I dont want to. The whole point of this app was to stop me having to allow other people access to my location etc. Bit of a privacy nut I'm afraid. Also its free and totally under my control. I also learnt alot making it which is half the fun for me. If you want an easier to setup app like that then I suggest webmasters one but not sure if its still working.

    just posted a note on webmasters tracking thread...

    but what would it take to support a hosting company as an extra option? i once had an server at home but i did not have the time to keep it running

    it was not meant to be rude when i asked what it would take to add the extra options

    but i think i'm not the only one who would like the option to use an "out in town" server... just to store the data

    then the app at home could pull data from there... or like i said yeaterday make some pages in php that pulls the data you want

    i have an idea in my head about how it should work in real life but i will save that until you ask what i have mind

    Thats ok, I didn't take it as being rude.

    The only reason I see for having an "out in town" server is if you dont have the skills to setup port forwarding on your home pc. I agree that this is an issue for some uses but my app was design specifically for running on your own home server. Webmasters does what you want (but I see it doesn't look like his app is still current).

    If you have more reasons then I might be persuaded but at the moment I have no plans to do this.

    i can do that... my router allready have 4 forward rules... and a few months ago i had a fullscale server that offered the same features as i now pay around 30 a year.. only advantage for me that i now save some money on power and dont have to constant do maintence and upgrades.. and the benefit is that i dont have an pc with spreads noise all over my appartment.. i simyply just turn of my pc when i dont use it

    his app did only store gps points.. no option for picture upload... no option for a geofence.. and no option for an sms... your are far more better than his.. in my project your app is still on the list.. but i would hate to have to setup a pc running just for that one..

    one more reason i can think of would be that loos of data... on a home server you would have to do backups... the company's that offers webspaces mostly do this... also for those who have not an fixed IP it could be an option also

    /bo

    EDIT: if it would help i could pay for someone to develop the php files for the webspace part, i had an idea in mind to offer something like webmaster did... for free of course.. only on a more automatic basis so that i did not have to activate accounts etc.

    i can have 10 domains on the host i have now.. and i only use 2 of them right now.. so plenty of space

    Lambo, any chance of having this run as a hidden service for the client? I would like it to auto track as soon as windows boots up. This is going to be used as more of a security feature and dont want potential theives seeing tracking software

    You can make it autoconnect already. Look in the ini file.

    As for hiding it I had that set when there was an alert set (needs some other program to set the registry setting correctly) so it was minimised and hidden. The trouble was that when I tested it you couldn't see it to switch it off.
