Gps tracker support

Post  albinsson on Sun Sep 11, 2011 2:20 pm

First of all. I love Oruxmaps.

I use it for marine navigation, and for hunting.

Tk-102 among others is a very popular gps tracking device for about 50$ on ebay. It can be used to track vehicles,people, pets and so on. I intend to use it to track a hunting dog.
However, simple explained it works like this: I send a sms to the tracker (which is by the way very small 64*46*17mm.) And the tracker responds with it´s coordinates. It would be lovely to use oruxmaps for this purpose. I´d like to press a button so it automaticly sends the sms, and then retrives the message from the tracker and shows it´s position on a map in oruxmaps.

There is one android app for that: easygpstracker.com
but I´d like to use my custom maps... and in oruxmaps....

cheers

Hi
I am still struggling with the above.
I have started to use the app "tasker" in which I have created a "button" widget that automatically sends the sms to the tracker.

The sms I get from the tracker looks like this:
lat:61.312084
long:16.557878
speed:0.00
T:11/10/03 20:29
battery:100% http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&q=61.312084,16.557878&z=16

I wonder if I with the help of tasker could mark this position on a map in oruxmaps, perhaps with a waypoint?
Preferably in "one click"

Does anyone have any Ideas?

I guess the key for my purposes is "intent".

Tasker can do "action intent".

And this thread http://oruxmaps.forosactivos.net/t393-starting-application-with-target-waypoint feels similar, but I don´t have a clue on how to use intent.

I would very much appreciate if Orux could bring some light to this !



This thread: http://oruxmaps.forosactivos.net/t1582-load-gpx-file-in-oruxmaps-via-intent might also have a solution.
Perhaps i can get tasker to pull the coordinates from an sms, and put them in a gpx file..

I feel out in the blue, noob as I am
