Sends the location of the mobile phone to a web server (gsm cell identifier or gps information)
CellGPS sends the location of the mobile phone to a webserver (gsm cell identifier or GPS information).
It connects automatically to the server using a predefined GPRS connection, at predefined time periods.
A Bluetooth-capable GPS device is required if you want to send GPS information (e.g. EMTEC Bluetooth GPS, or Fortuna Bluetooth GPS, etc.).
How to set it up:
Connection period: it shows the frequency of the connection (in seconds).
IP: set the IP address of the server.
Host: set the host name of the server.
URI: set the page of the server to be called.
Connection: select amoung the available GPRS connections (set up in Menu/Tools/Settings/), e.g. you can select a WAP or an Internet connection.
Upload: shows the information being uploaded to the server.
Cell ID: uploads the gsm cell id.
GPS data: latitude, longitude, direction, speed information. It connects only if the GPS data is valid.
How to connect to the GPS device:
A Bluetooth-capable device is required. In Settings, switch to upload GPS data, and restart the program.
At the first time, the scan for Bluetooth devices starts. After selecting the appropiate device, the phone connects to it, and begins to receive location information. If the device is not paired, then it will ask for the Bluetooth code.
After the first time, the phone will automatically look for this GPS device. No matter if the device goes out of range, it will connect to it again automatically.
The received location information is displayed below the cell id and signal strength. It is displayed with red when the information is not valid (the GPS device is not in range, or the current location is not determinable).
