    New GPS Tracking Software * Need Suggestions

    well currently me and my buddy who are working on it have it only working for me. but this is just a little preview of what is to come, www.whereiskevinholy.com . its a tracking system built in C# which takes your GPS signal and sends it to server to map it out for path/history and all sorts.

    currently we are like alpha 1 stage we just have the basic plot done. it pulls signal caches it to memory and whenever u have a internet uploads to server. so if your using wireless off your phone or such you will always be showing were you currently are...

    or in my case most of the time when i like to talk on my phone and not use internet.. mine uploads when i pull in my driveway and connects to my wireless at home...

    the things we are looking for is what others would like to see on a tracking system, some thoughts are to show like police hotspots... and also show MPH/TIME/DIRECTION on the paths maybe?

    last thing that we need are name suggestions, we are no sure what to name this project, we have been trying to come up with something for a while now but whenever we do the domain or something is already taken...

    any ideas are greatly welcome, we will open BETA testing hopefully soon to other users to test :-)

    thanks

    Interesting project. However, I would think twice before recording your speed for obvious reasons.

    Is there any way to do this without an internet connection? How do the other companies do it this way?

    well, the other companies that do this the device they give u actually has some sort of internet connection or data transfer...

    this week we currently created a cache function were it will if you have no internet cache all your points recorded to your harddrive then whenever an connection is present u can upload... so i dunno bout u but for me if i dont have my cell phone hooked up when i pull in garage my wireless connects and since i have a 10 min shutdown delay it uploads while i taking a crap on the toliet

    :-)

    we are trying to decide wether we would create a box like that which would provide the data transfer but we would have to get in contact with a provider such as sprint/verizon... yada... but thats a LONG LONG way down the road and i dont wanna think bout it.

    we need a name b4 anything :-P

    Ok, how about TrackLink? Or NavTrack?

    I'll test it, but I don't see what I would use it for. I want something that I can track without having an internet connection.
