GPS Tracking w/Text Messaging (with carputer on.)
I know there is alot of discussion here about hooking up a GPS to a cell phone for operation with the computer off. I want to be able to send my GPS location but only need to do it with the computer on.
So my theory... I have a US Cellular Razr which is Bluetooth enabled. I want to be able to connect to the Razr via bluetooth and send GPS corrdinates. I'm assuming I can use something like maps.google.com to display the maps and my location.
Now, I can handle writting the GPS interface, I have code for this already in some programs I've written for my day job. I can also handle receiving the e-mail and processing the coordinates and stuffing them into a database. Maps.google.com is probably easy to manipulate. So how do I send a SMS message through bluetooth to my phone? and is there anyone doing this already?
I have a couple of reasons for wanting this. I want a quick way for me to review where I've been and where I'm going. This is especially nice for figuring up my milage every month. I think it would also be a nice "cool" factor and my wife would be able to see where I'm at (my cell phone doesn't work inside some of my customer's offices.)
