Hello

I'm thinking about an tracking project.

Not like "Where have you bin all the day?", more like "Where are you right now"

I would like to use an old android device to track a car by using only SMS.

The device should only be used to receive a SMS, switch on GPS, wait for signal and send back the current position.

The device don't need to provide phone functionality, internet or any UI.

The power supply should be connected to the car battery. (I hope it will not discharge to much)

Is it possible to hide the device into the glove compartment and to protract the GPS antenna?

To make a keepalive the device should send a SMS once a week to a given Number.

Is there any project how strip down an android to some basic functionality?

Is there any project which provide likewise functions?

Currently i have install CM7 on my old and CM11 on my new device.

Maybe CM7 with androidlost can do the job.

I found some descriptions about remove most apps like calender, contacts, ...
I'm not sure if the UI can be removed.
