This demo sends the location of the mobile phone to our server (gsm cell identifier or gps information - latitude and longitude). It connects automatically to our server using a predefined GPRS connection, at predefined time periods.

A Bluetooth-capable GPS device is required if you want to send gps information (e.g. Emtac Bluetooth GPS, or Fortuna Bluetooth GPS, etc.).


Connection period: it shows the frequency of the connection (in seconds). In this case, number 100 means that it connects to the server in each 100 seconds.

Upload mode:
- HTTP: uploading with a HTTP GET command to the server
Url: url to call with the predefined parameters, default:
- TCP/IP: position sent using a TCP/IP socket
Server: server to send TCP message to
Port: port on server to send TCP message to
- FILE: write position to a file
Type: Waypoint file, CSV file or Google Maps KML file
- SMS: send position to a predefined number in an text message
Phone number: to send the text message to

Connection: select amoung the available Internet connections.

Positioning: shows the information being uploaded to the server:
- Cell ID: uploads the gsm cell information ONLY (MCC, MNC, LAC, Cell ID)
- Bluetooth GPS / Internal GPS: uploads GPS latitude and longitude information additionally to cell information. It connects only if the GPS data is valid
- Network based: tries to get position from a positioning server, if position is valid, sends to server (available in S60 3rd Edition phones).

Automatic startup:
- Manual only: no automatic startup
- On phone start: automatically starts application after phone start
- During interval: automatically starts/stops application at the selected start/end time positions
- On SMS: application will be started if phone receives a text message with the content: !!LOCATOR!!

Speed unit: you can set the preferred speed unit for displaying and uploading.


The received location information is displayed below the cell id and signal strength. It is displayed with red when the information is not valid (the GPS device is not in range, or the current location is not determinable).

How to check the information sent to our server:

At this page you can get the location information. Just enter the IMEI number of the phone, then select the day.

How can I integrate it?

The program sends the information to our server by default, however, you can easily integrate in your system. The program
calls an Internet page using special parameters:

depending on the Connection value Settings.

Values sent to the server

imei: IMEI
mcc, mnc, lac, cell: network idenfitiers
signal: signal strength (-dBm)

If position information is available, the client sends the following parameters:
lat: latitude (NMEA format)
long: longitude (NMEA format)
speed: speed (km/h or mph or knots)
heading: heading (degree)
alt: altitude (m or feet)

Demo server

In the ZIP file, a free demo server is attached. You need a web host with php and mySQL support to run it. Just unpack the contents into a new folder, ask for a Google Maps account at, set the values in config.php.
You also has to set up the database table storing location information by executing this script:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `GPSLoc` ( `IMEI` varchar(15) NOT NULL default '', `Datum` datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00', `Latitude` varchar(15) default NULL, `Longitude` varchar(15) NULL, `IP` varchar(15) NOT NULL default '', PRIMARY KEY (`IMEI`,`Datum`) );

If you want to support cell-based positioning, you can use our cell database, but:
- you need to have a valid CellPos application license (you can buy one at our homepage)
- check the database if cell coverage of the area you want to use in at,
because we can give you absolutely no warranty that it will work there or not (please help us to
collect more cells with CellPos application)
- replace gpsloc.php with gpsloc_cell.php (but do not forget to add a valid IMEI number to the script).

Please install the client software, enter Settings (HTTP, and the url of the server + new folder name + gpsloc.php), and you will be able to track the phone.
E.g. in our case, you should set, and you can see the map at

Now you can use a mobile phone to view last position of all tracked phone, using act.php.
This script generates a KML document, that could be viewed in e.g. Google Maps Mobile, or Mobile GMaps.
Google Maps Mobile: enter the full url of act.php to Search.

Mobile GMaps: go to Menu/Services/View KML/Open Web Address and enter the full url to the act.php script (e.g.

In Mobile GMaps, you can also visualize KML logs saved by GPSMap.
