Author Topic: Sending geo cordinates from Android device to my remote server  (Read 2534 times)

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.

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.
