GPS tracking project
January 13, 2012
its been quite some time till i checked out LMR (due to major exams :P) and its got better then the past .
I ran into some confusion about my new project (and thought its best to ask here) since its first time i am using GPS , i checked
out several posts on LMR which helped me a lot especially Gareth's post which was very informative for any gps starter guide.
basically i need to make a real time tracking spy GPS device i have got quite a bit of knowledge from the internet resources .
so here are the steps i have decided to take in order to build it :-
1. I need to use a GPS reciver module with sheild to fix a micro sd card to log data #in this case my problem is to buy which module as i checked out they vary from 25$ to 99$ depending on number of channels , clock rate etc . but i dont know which specs to look out for i want value for money so any experienced users can give an insight#.
2. I decided to send the values collected in the card after every 2 minutes via GSM module but it makes it bulky i want to make it small , i also tried using cell phone as sending medium through gprs or sms but still looking for any smaller alternative.
3. Any other possible method of real time tracking is also welcomed .. i tried looking at beagle boards but they make it arbitrarily complex and bulky.
any help will be appreciated
