This is my new Gps Tracker wordpress plugin. It’s 100% responsive using Twitter Bootstrap. Responsive means that it displays properly on any screen from a cell phone to a tablet up to a desktop.
It also uses leaflet. This allows you to change map providers on the fly. Try the button in the top right hand corner of the map. You can switch between OpenStreetMaps and Google. There are many other providers as well.
If you want to check out the plugin, you can download it directly from WordPress.
And from your Android phone, you can download the client from Google Play. Please note that you must use the WordPress version of Android Gps Tracker and not the open source version. The reason for this is because the WordPress version uses nonces which adds extra security.
I want to explain how Gps Tracker works. When it first loads, the most recent location of all active devices is displayed. The one in red is the most current gps location in the database. If you owned a company with several trucks out in the field, you would be looking at the location of all your trucks. Now suppose you wanted to see where a particular truck has been. The way to do that is to tap on one of the markers or select a route from the dropdown box under the map. They are just two different ways to display the history of a route.
If you tap on the “View All” button, you will once again be able to see all of your trucks. If you tap on the “AutoRefresh” button, you will be able to see all of your truck routes updated in real time every minute. I think that covers the needs of most people. If you need something custom, please feel free to contact me on my Hire Me page.
