gpstrackerGps Tracker v5.1.4

Google Map Gps Cell Phone Tracker

Now available as a Wordpress plugin and Android client!

This project allows you to track cell phones periodically. For instance every minute or every five minutes. You can watch the cell phone being tracked in real time using Google Maps (and other map providers such as OpenStreetMaps) and you can store and reload routes easily. The map display page is built using bootstrap which makes the page responsive and also uses bootswatch which gives you the choice of 17 different themes. There are 4 clients, iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Java ME.

You have the following choices server side:

  1. ASP.NET with SQL Server
  2. PHP with your choice of:
  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • SQLite
  1. Wordpress plugin with Android client

All 3 stacks are in the same download but you only need to use one.

By default the Tracker server is set up to use the included SQLite database. If you want to use one of the other supported database systems, edit the dbconnect.php file.

Here is a quick start guide to help you set up Gps Tracker:

Some pretty major changes here. The android app now has google play location services running in a background service. Also updates will restart if phone is rebooted. The servers are both now using json and jquery. Xml is gone forever. Both servers now support multiple map types. It's currently set up for google maps, bing maps and OpenStreetMaps.

Feb 11, 2014 - v3.1.0

Version 3.1.0 updates the php server code from google maps 2 to 3 and now uses jquery. There was a bug in the delete route stored procedure (the sessionID parameter was to small and was causing the delete to fail silently).

Jan 14, 2014 - v3.0.0

Version 3.0.0 of Gps Tracker is complete. This was a very big change from the last version. It's been updated with ios, android, windowsPhone and java me/j2me phone clients and the servers have all been updated as well. Please let me know how it works, good or bad and create an issue if you find a problem. Thanks and enjoy the software, Nick.

ps. I will be writing tutorials and documentation shortly.
