I've finished the first version of the Meitricks app, which is basically a friendly interface to the Meitrack SMS protocol for the MVT340 and MVT380 trackers.
I may add support for other devices down the track, so I have coded support for that scenario.
Feel free to test and provide feedback. If there are commands missing that you think you will use, let me know and I can add them.
Until this app is put into the google play store, you may need to temporarily allow installation from unknown sources.
Go into your Android settings -> Security -> Unknown sources.
You can turn that off again after the app is installed.
- Set phone number and pin of tracker
- Send tracking commands
- Send tracker configuration commands
- Reboot GSM/GPS modules
- Control tracker outputs
- Help dialogues for commands
- Configure ignition control depending how the ignition relay was configured (normally open/normally closed)

I've got a new version of the app ready to go, but I have removed the download link.
I found out you can release a "Beta" version of the app in the google play store and allow users access to it via a link.
Been doing some research, and it looks like I will be able to integrate this app with the existing website to display the live map and history maps, as well as sending commands via GPRS instead of SMS etc.
My plan is to make this part of the app "billable", so it would be an in-app purchase to enable the GPRS/Mapping functions.
I need to decide how to create user accounts after a payment is made and decide on a billing format. I was thinking a yearly subscription.
Any thoughts on that? The problem with a once off payment for a service like the GPRS service is that it is ongoing.
A once off for an app is fine because you've done the development, they pay for the app and keep it forever. However with the GPRS stuff, I always have to maintain the service, so once off would send me broke.
I was thinking maybe $20/year for that part of the app. It would obviously also give them access to the website as well.
Is it worth it? Too expensive? Too cheap?
