Question GPS Tracking to my own Server

Please Login to Remove!

Hello.

My Company uses GPS tracking devices to keep track of their vehicle fleet. Each vehicle has a small GPS receiver with a GPRS internet connection and every 30 or 60 seconds uploads the following data to our website using an HTTP POST command:
  • IMEI Number
  • Date/Time of Fix
  • Latitude
  • Longitude
  • Altitude
  • Heading
  • Speed
  • No of Satellites used

This data is received by an ASP script (could also be PHP etc) which then uploads it into our internal MS SQL database. On our internal intranet, we can then see the vehicles locations displayed on maps. The internal system will also e-mail people if the vehicles start moving around in the middle of the night for instance and we can view previous days histories etc.

We are now rolling out some Blackberry Bolds to people and would like to add these into our tracking solution.

Basically I am looking for a simple program that I can install onto our Bolds that will send the GPS data (as above) to our website. All the ones I have seen will only upload the data to their own sites and then the user has to logon to view where the blackberry is. I am wanting to upload the data to my own servers so I can decide what to do with the data!!!

If anyone can point me towards some sites/programs, then I would be most greatful.

Many thanks.

Andrew.

Not sure if this will help: InstaMapper - Free Real-Time GPS Tracking

This requires that you do a bit of coding, but it's fully configurable and only requires that you have a webserver that supports php/mysql or asp.net/mssql

You can download the source here:
source forget .net / project / showfiles.php ? group_id=198122

sorry, i'd post a clickable link, but apparently you need a post count of 10 or greater...

Have you deployed a BES? There is a GPS IT Policy you can enable if your carrier supports it.

Agree this is exactly what I'm looking for as well. I want to upload GPS data from a Blackberry 8820 to my web server. Did the software from mslaven work?
