Featured GPS Tracking app for the iPhone and Android

Btraced Featured GPS Tracking app for the iPhone
With option to upload to your own server of choice!

Real-time Track and Trace
With Btraced Track & Trace for the iPhone it's possible to real-time track, log and upload your (gps) positions. It is possible to:
•store and see all your trips locally on your iPhone
•upload your trip real-time to your own server or
•upload to the Btraced server for free
•offline tracking and upload later
•view location, speed, altitude, direction, course and distance traveled in real-time
•mail your trip as GPX file and view it in Google Earth and many other compatible applications

Upload real-time to your own server
With Btraced it's possible to upload your trip details to your own webserver or webservice. With this option you are in charge of your own data which you can use for other applications like fleet management, Home automation or otherwise.
For example; on Bwired.nl the Gps data is being used to check if the house heatings needs to be set On because the Btraced person is coming home :-)
To upload the GPS details to your own server you needs some skills to handle the XML which is being sent from the iPhone to your server. The XML with the tripdetails can be sent every x (paramater) seconds or after every x (parameter) distance traveled or within a combination of both. The received Btraced XML on your own server needs to to be processed (by yourself) and for example store the data in a MYSQL database. To help we will provide the full layout of the XML upload structure and a sample (classic) ASP file which can store the trip data in a MYSQL database on your own server. To make this work IT knowledge on this subject is needed, for those who do not have these skills check the next item.

Upload for free on Btraced.com
Btraced offers a free service for uploading and viewing trips on the Btraced servers. The app has an option to select uploading your trips to Btraced.com, this can be done real-time during tracking (point by point) or later the whole trip at once. During the first time uploading you need to choose a username and password. With these credentials you can also Login to Btraced.com and check out or manage your trips. Uploading to Btraced comes with certain rules:
•availability of the Btraced server is best effort, so not included in the price of the app
•the last 25 uploaded Trips (uploaded by all users) are visible to everybody!
•you can upload 25 trips max, after this you need to delete trips before you can upload again
•for every uploaded trip there is a limit of 300 GPS points you can upload. So don't set your uploading frequency to high like every 10 seconds!
