DESCRIPTION
Hi all,

I have been trying for a while to find some GPS/CellID tracking programs that work fine but most of them are buggy and not very accurate. That's why I decided to write my own!

Features:

- Ability to generate KML and GPX files that can be opened with any tool that supports that type of file.
- Realtime tracking with Google Earth or Google Maps.
- You can create and manage your own trips
- No internet connection is needed when using TrackMe (Offline mode)
- Ability to display your current position on your PDA
- Geofence with SMS and email notifications
- You can send your current position by email or sms to other person
- Ability to upload pictures. TrackMe will extract the GPS information/Creation date (if any)
from the pictures and it will match it with your existing GPS data
- Search for closest user based on your last uploaded position
- GPS powersave mode available
- You can use your own server instead of my free server
- Stealth mode
- You can force updates with your own custom icon and comments.

If you guys are interested in this program I will keep it updated, otherwise this will be probably one of the last versions!

Please leave your comments, suggestions and ideas here.

Have fun!

Regards

that's pretty dope! Where does it upload the data to? Any chance of sharing the source code and people could add to it? maybe open source it?

Thanks kireol.

Right now it's uploading the information to the mysql database that I have with my web hosting.

Regarding the source code... I think it could be a good idea. Maybe once the program is completely stable I may do it. Thanks for your suggestion.

for sure man, you did a great job! And I for one would love to get involved. I was a programmer at Ford for 15 years(C++/PHP/Perl/Java) until those jobs went to India and forced me to throw away my college degree. I've been dieing to get back into programming (5 years now). This last weekend I snagged MS visual studio .net and the wm6 sdk and started compiling. This might b a good transition for me to get back into thinking that way, if you decide you'd like to OS it that is

Thanks ishkatar.

You just need to go to Config, and enter there a username and password.
The account is created automatically as soon as you start uploading GPS data.

If for any reason the username already exists or there is any other error, you will be notified.

Very cool.

Maybe you could release the table structure and a way for people to host their own data...like a personal web app.

Wow ... works perfectly!!! I just did a test walk around my office and it mapped it perfectly!!! Good work Staryon. I'm really eager to see how you did it.

Thanks a lot for all your comments. That really encourages me to keep updating the software.

laakness, at this moment the data is inserted into the mysql tables by using HTTP calls. My website gets the HTTP call and depending on the command it will do the specified task. That means that what you mention it would work if they have a website with PHP and a mysql database. A nice feature that I could add in the future is to make the inserts directly to the database instead of using HTTP calls.
However this is something that may not work for many web hostings because they usually don't allow access to mysql from external applications (which is my case by the way)


For the KML files (Google Earth's files) I used a structure that I liked in one of the tools that I found that does something similar to this. I made some modifications though.
