I wouldn't charge you or any of the testers G.
Hopefully there is a way I can choose accounts to get a freebee.


Im still happy to help out as i think this is fantastic and you spend time on it etc. Just saying.

Even as a tester.. lol all we have to do is drive our cars .. Very Happy

I find this invaluable as you know.

Preview of the next version. This one will be a while away - much to develop.
New tabbed interface. Second and third tabs will be the "Premium" only parts that will utilise GPRS and the existing tracking website functions. The first tab for SMS will remain free.
I'm adding a function to read all SMS from the trackers number, and find the most recent location SMS. I will use that to show the "Last Known Location".

I just uploaded a new version so that people can test the last known location from SMS.

It will basically read all SMS from the tracker, find the SMS with the latest time in the message from the tracker (because SMS can come through out of sync), and uses the Lat/Lon to place a pin on a map.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
You can ignore the BILLING permission - this has been put in place so I can create the "product" for GPRS tracking functions.
You can't even add a product in google play unless one of your apps requests the BILLING permission.

Change of plans.
Since Google now requires all developers to show a physical address, I'm not doing the paid app any more.

Showing a physical address is fine for a big company, but for small developers like me, that means having your home address shown to the entire world. No thanks. Especially considering there is a very limited audience for this app anyway.

So I will develop the entire app as a free app, and I will use paypal subscriptions to the Mustrack website or something like that if I ever actually get anyone wanting GPRS tracking.

It also means that those of you who have been testing can keep it free.

New version added.
BILLING permission has been removed as I don't agree with forcing me to show my home address to the entire internet.

I will work out some other way to provide subscriptions.

First iteration of live and historical tracking via the Mustrack website is now in the app.
Those of you who already have usernames on the Mustrack website can just enter your username (email) and password into the app settings.
People who don't have a username on the Mustrack website will need to get one and configure the tracker to use the GPRS live tracking.

Nice hybrid! ! I just updated mine and it works well. Though Last Known location gives me a blank screen with google logo bottom left. This is brilliant for thise 'emergency' moments. I can easily click live!! I requested a location status from my car and i got an sms an hr later lol. At least this is more intuitive! Love your work! Is there a way to hide the pin? On the main screen?

Yes I can have it treated the same as the password for the website.
Edit: not that it matters, because the pin gets sent in every text anyway, so all they need to do is open your text messages to see it.
I'll fix that now - I also just noticed the blank screen. That was working fine before, so I will check that out.

Was literally just out in the garage with my tracker removed to check it all over.

Did you try out the live and history tabs?

Ok problem with the map should be sorted once this new version propagates.
I left the dev maps API key in the app instead of switching over to my signed API key, so google was not authorising use of google maps.

Google play is only installing version 1.6 at the moment. 1.8 is the one I just uploaded.

Yeah i know. Thought rather than it be visable on the open screen to hide it thats all. Either way its good.

Loving it though. Live and history works just like the website. I think it's great!!

What kind of phone do you have?
I was concerned that live/history wasn't going to display well on different phones. It's hard to get google maps to display properly without specifying a size.

George and I have been playing around with the app. The live tracking and history components are now working.

I will someday think of something clever to say.
