I figured I would help out with the project so I made a ASP.Net page that would basically scrape staryon's kml file and then set the mime-type which seemed to help a bit with the google maps. There's still a few errors (something to do with the style) but it at least works in google maps now.
when referencing the kml file in maps.google.com
Put the following in the "Search Map" textbox:
Where ##### is your kml filename setup in the trackme program.
You can also put in the following:
Where ##### is your full URL to the kml file.
I tested it a bit this morning and it works like a charm! I take no credit/responsability for this amazing program, just figured I would help until staryon can get google maps working!
Looks like Staryon and DoughtCom need to colaborate a bit and make this app all that it can be. It certainly looks promissing!
Staryon, I don't see a list of To-Do items in your first post. Perhaps you can update it to list the things you want to do to the program so people can help flush out requirements and make suggestions? On a selfish note, things I would love to see:
1) Code for those with hosts to be able to use their own servers - this does several things including reducing your bandwidth which isn't free, and can allow say a company to use it and put all of their employees on one page.
2) Direct update for Google Maps - this provides a completely web driven output so that no software needs to be installed. The Google API can definitely support this as DoughtCom has shown.
You already have an awesome capability, but it can do much more without becoming a bloatware application. Please do continue the development, and consider open sourcing it.
