I've been using a tracking application I built for myself and my friends for awhile and I'm curious if ther would be interest for it in the BB community. It comes in two parts.
1. A simple java app that runs on your BB and sends Latitude, Longitude, Heading, Speed, etc at a configurable interval via a .Net web service on a remote server and stores it in a database.
2. An interactive website that diplays the current location in realtime of the blackberry. Their are also additional options to view location history.
I know there are plenty of mapping and GPS apps for BBerry, but I'm not sure if there is one that allows you to remotely track the location in realtime. I personally have enjoyed it because it allows us to see each others location from any machine with a web browser. It also would work nicely if your BBerry was stolen or lost. Either way it's been fun integrating J2ME with Microsoft .Net technologies.
Right now it's very crude but I have some extra time right now and I'd figure if there was some interest in it I'd do a bit more work on it, pretty it up, and release it to the community. I could secure the website with username and password and from your account you'd be able to add BBerry's via the device pin. I also have a lot of other cool ideas like the ability to expose an RSS feed of your location, etc.
Do you guys think there'd be an interest in this, am I reinventing the wheel, or did I just possibly give away a million dollar idea
