Hello:

My presentation is running on Taxis using Android tablets with 3G and GPS. Now what we need is being able to geographically locate taxis. After checking your video tutorials I am thinking of SendCommand posting the coordinates to my server but I have no idea how to "grab" the latitude/longitude.

Any hits will help.

Thanks.

Mayte

grabbing GPS coordinates is something you can do with Arduino or Raspberry PI.
You can use a local running App on the  Raspberry PI for example and with PHP or node.js use the sendCommand to send the event + coordinates.
