|Summary||0000557: Implement alternative location tracking system|
|Description||GPS tracker are now readily available and cheap that can be configured to send LAT/LONG and other data to a server via simple IP messages. I have a tracker type TK-102 from amazon that cost £16 and <£2 per month for a SIM. Would it be possible to add features to CP (and to the CP Wordpress plugin) to enable a tracking feature using such devices? It would seem to be a useful addition to the CP users community.|
I would be happy to fund a tracker and provide debug/documentation assistance to a project to do this.

It could be added - there is a url there that takes a few parameters which basically stop someone else pinging their location as you. If you could tell me the sort of data that the TK-102 send and how it sends it then it could be done.
We could also see if something could be added to open canalmap.
From the internet so needs to be verified
the attached file appear to be a protocol manual I have found others on the internet with varying degrees of readability (and/or quality of translation form Chinese!)
Some documents suggest there is a simple logon sequence/handshake between the server and the tracker before the tracker will regularly update the server.
You will need a tracker and to configure it to send messages to your server to verify the messages format.
This is the tracker I am using they seem to be pretty generic.
