Default Program to grab lat/long gps, then cache to file or send off

Please Login to Remove!

For long trips and other needs, I would like a way to log GPS location/speed to a file, or send it every 5-10 minutes through an active web connection to my own server. Now I know that watching a serial connection from a GPS unit isnt that fancy in terms of code, nor is sending data through a program on a blackberry. Problem is I have never parsed data from a serial stream for GPS data (constant stream, not sure how it averages), and combined that with a log file to transmit off.

A program like this might turn out to be a pretty cool thing, with the ability for many multiple users, and then being able to plot out current location in real time on a googlemap type display. Currently I dont think there is ANY non-subscription service($$$) that does this, so getting something out there would be pretty nice. Anyone up for the task

Why don't you want to use JSR-179 (javax.microedition.location package) to access GPS via bluetooth?

Damn that makes it slightly easier I guess ;). Now would that feature also be a part of the Symbian S60 java platform?

for those nokia devices, which support GPS - I think yes, they support JSR-179. But you'd better investigate it on forum.nokia.com.
If you still want to do some development, you can drop me private message
