    Nextel GPS & Mappoint

    Is there a bridge that will get the location of a GPS phone and update mappoint.

    I have 50 drivers. I'm looking for a low cost solution.

    Thanks

    Nextel GPS & Mappoint

    There is a service from a Nextel partner called FutureRoads.com. For about $10/month per Nextel unit, you can get AVL on Mappoint. Nextel charges about $15/month for the data service, so your total will be about $25/month per vehicle. You may be able to get better rates with the higher number of vehicles, we are looking into this service for only about 3 or 4 vehicles to start.

    GPS Track for Mappoint

    If your GPS phone can send email with location (Lat-Lon), you can try GPS Track from Mobile GPS Online. More info at http://www.mobilegpsonline.com/products_2.htm

    turn-by-turn navigation also available at www.telenav.net

    You can also get GPS navigation (just like expensive in-car solutions) from www.telenav.net.

    Nextel GPS & Mappoint

    Geomicro has a Geolocator app you can download from their web site. It is very basic. When I told them I needed more functionality, they offered the source code. http://www.geomicro.com/GLDownloads/default.asp

    gps on Mappoint

    I hope I'm wrong but I believe Mappoint's EULA (for MP2004) precludes being able to use it for real or near realtime AVL mapping solutions. I believe you can still use MP2002 without any problems

    Don't worry, no one enforces the EULA. Cheak out www.actsoft.com/products/Tracker.html and http://www.cheetahtracks.com

    If you go to either of those web sites, they say you need a copy of MapPoint 2004 and a Nextel phone.

    Microsoft obviously doesn't care. They list Cheetah as a member of the MapPoint Alliance Program and promote them as MapPoint Solution Providers.
