    my gps project idea

    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to come up with interesting project ideas and recently been thinking of one ... i want to build a software that can be used to track the location of vehicles on google maps..the idea is that you keep some kind of gps device inside a vehicle and then you track its location...on g not at all interested in building the hardware device for this..the only thing im interested is..if there are any devices that can be tracked , i would like to write the app to track it and display it on maps...does this sound really lame or too difficult? also,is there any charges associated with using google maps this way ? please suggest

    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.

    There are quite a few programs that do this already, including an official one from Google.

    The hardest part is to have internet access on the tracking device (eg. cellular network).
