    Would you, could you, have you ever thought of creating a little utility to grab the GPS data (as you are doing already) and make it generally available through COM or some such like?

    I don't like the idea of having to upload MY DATA to a server in order to interpret the data.... other than, it was a good concept. Maybe next time!

    I'm not sure what you are talking about. How else would you have it? That is the point of GPSSecure. In the settings you can control what goes to the server and what is kept on your computer. The client app that goes in your car interprets the data.

    Umm, I could do that. No one has asked for it yet though. Do you have a use for it?

    Sorry, I must have not RTFM! So I can interpret the data all locally? OK, will RTFM and spend more time with it, apologies!

    No problem. So the car client will extract all of the gps data and all of that. It will stick it in logs if you have it set up for that too. What the server and web stuff is for is to store the data and to display your position on the maps and such.

    I see. I still don't understand why you can't just store the data on a custom server (Say, FTP to my own PC at home), and use a local client to display position/maps etc. I just don't like the idea of uploading my positional data to a remote server that I do not own. It's very much PRIVATE information!

    I understand your concern. The reason I haven't done what you suggested is becuase I can't very easily just create something that will run on everyones servers. First, you would need a database manager set up on your server, it would need to be the same one I use, and it would have to be set up just like mine. Then there is the matter of helping everyone set up their servers to run my ASP.NET code. It is much more difficult to help people set up a server than to help people run a client on their home machine. You are right, it is something I could do but that is something that would take way too much time and would take away from me improving the whole system. Since I don't get paid to work on the app, nor have I planned on charging for it I can't work on it full time.
    Right now I am the only one that has access to your data and I have never looked at anyones data without permission.
    Thanks for the suggestion, hopefully some day I"ll do something like that.
