    Blacklisted FEs

    Here's a list of frontends that lack support for OSDASH services. If you are a plugin maker or developer for any of these frontends, talk with me, Bugbyte or Matt about getting support in.

    OpenMobile
    Centrafuse
    Roadrunner

    The easiest service (and potentially incredibly useful) is the location service. A simple plugin would just upload your location, speed, etc to osdash. In a more advanced plugin, you can then aggregate all the anonymous data and do live traffic, car tag, etc.

    There's also the remote command service that frontends can implement to enable users to control their frontend from anywhere in the world via the internet.

    what isn't in the list? lol

    and more importantly what would osdash offer to any of these front ends?

    the location service can't do live traffic or anything that cool due to too few users (even if every person on mp3car used the service it would barely be 1/100 of the required data). The remote control and online data could be cool but i think right now its a very small percentage of users. So other then the vin/dtc lookup stuff i just sent matt what would a large portion of end users be interested in?

    Chicken and the egg here. If nobody uses it because nobody uses it, it's never going to become popular. Think of it this way, a few frontends start using it, then a few phones, then it becomes popular enough that apple/google/nokia/garmin/foo installs it in their phone/vehicle stacks by default. All of the sudden it's quite useful. Even the smallest seed can become a giant tree given enough time.

    For now, the location service makes a cool "where is my wife" tool. Or, it can become a "man, when I leave work at this time, I can save 5 minutes off my commute". Give me enough time and I'll think of a dozen more useful things you can do with it. Use your imagination, man. This single service may not be incredibly useful at a glance. It's how all the services can be used together that will get some real innovation going on here.

    Except Google already has their own implementation built into Google Nav on pretty much every GPS enabled android device. Then location sharing capability through google latitude. I don't see them tying in to some other service.
