THANKS A MILLION! I have been pulling my hair out trying to get this done on my own! but I lack the programming skills...
I got 1.0.0 Up and running Perfect :) And figured out how to adjust the intervals of updating, So I got a perfect line of tracking!!! :BIGGRIN:
And it does not seen to take up to much bandwidth?
My cpu usage has not incresed at all either!! 1.6ghz processor is about 30% WITH: Tracking, USB GPRS MODEM, Roadrunner with music, i guideance, x port, and a crazy flash front end all running..
Im having a problem with version 1.0.1 the server program wont load so I cant use the auto connect feature of 1.0.1 the client side works fine, I tried on xp and vista... :(
I even tried just using 1.0.1 in the car and 1.0.0 on the server but the 2 are not compatable? lol
Would an adjustable delay before connecting to the com port when loading the program be possible, my com port takes about 5-10 seconds before its ready after resuming from hibernate...
A button on the server to clear the old data markers without having to go in and delete the data yourself would be cool!
I will throw you some donation$ for this awsome work, GREAT JOB :)
Does the server keep a log? Is it possible to pull up data from days/weeks/months prior?
Deffenetly is possible to go back through the records, but the interface is simple right now, Im sure it would be really easy to make the program store the files better so it would be easier looking back through dates/etc...
Hi all back from hols now.
@hondabldr . Good to hear you had it all working and liked it. If you post the debug log from your server it should help me see what the problem is.
@TimmyM. The data is stored in xml format for each car. I automatically clear out data older than 30 days to keep the file small but otherwise its all there.
Where is the debug log? I try to run the program an it just dies on me right away...Vista gives me this:
Problem Event Name: CLR20r3
Problem Signature 01: gpsserver.exe
Problem Signature 02: 188.8.131.52
Problem Signature 03: 49d3e1a2
Problem Signature 04: GPSServer
Problem Signature 05: 184.108.40.206
Problem Signature 06: 49d3e1a2
Problem Signature 07: f
Problem Signature 08: c6
Problem Signature 09: System.InvalidOperationException
OS Version: 6.0.6001.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Is this is all done with VB? I have been trying to learn it awhile! :)
The debug is in the current directory\logs.
Its switched on with a setting in the ini file.
thinking about it I need to make the debug file name less generic. its just called debug.log.
And yes its all coded in vb.net :)
I've written a similar app in C# for my Windows Mobile phone. It makes use of SQL Server CE 3.5 to store the data, and Sync Services to synchronize with my home server.
Just like you said, I too don't trust third parties to track my every movement for me, but the main reason I wrote my own was just because I wanted to 'figure it all out for myself.'
Ok it seems that all the debug setting are set to true, I cant even begin the program at all?
Whats so different between 1.0.1 and 1.0.0 seems wierd I can run one perfectly but not the other??
