Turn your old phone into advanced on-demand GPS tracker
Functionality: * on incoming SMS with keyword the application replies - current location (+ link to google map) - speed - location accuracy - optionally distance from 3 specified locations (to save time and data checking on map) * configuration over SMS
========================================================================== List of application commands: https://www.dropbox.com/s/p8famnu0yj4a6f9/GSM%20AutoResponder%200_74%20Commands.pdf ==========================================================================
Target use: * dedicated (low spec) Android 4+ phones to be used as location beacons (i.e. to locate your car on demand) * not intended for use for people tracking, as the GPS search will inevitably drain the battery
Comments * GPS has to be enabled on the phone to achieve the accuracy - if can work with GSM approximation only but you'll need data on the phone enabled * for unattended use I'd strongly recommend a device with auto ON/OFF feature or and schedule this to happen daily to minimise risk of phone freezing and/or switching off (definitely for lower spec devices) * I suggest to use applications such as SMS Backup+ and TeamViewer Host to synchronise phone messages to email and to control the phone remotely when within your home Wi-Fi
Known issues: * uuholo map link doesn't work (this is just preparation for LITE version) * design / font sizes etc odd on some phones with higher resolution * no help within the app
Happy for any suggestions but since this was developed mostly for personal use there might not be time to implement them all.
