Hi,

I want to enable live tracking with CP5 and may have difficulty getting my business phone GPRS enabled so I'm considering a cheap personal mobile alternative over bluetooth as I have a spare handset available.

For those who have this working, which provider do you use?

I have an O2 PAYG SIM which may have 1Mb per month available (I'm still trying to understand the difference between GPRS WAP and GPRS Web!). They also have GPRS bolt-ons but I'm not sure whether these are web or WAP... Another option is their Data 5 service which seems reasonably priced.

Has anyone got tracking on O2 working?

Cheers, Peter

I recall someone having a problem with I think O2 but I may be wrong. Orange certainly give you it all bundled in that's GPRS data, and GPRS WAP but that's on Pay Monthly. I think it's still the same on PAYG.

Thanks, Dave

Is this what they call Orange World as I could get 4MB for 4 under their Extras scheme?

Cheers, Peter

Yes but I am on a O2 contract, I don't think it is supported on a O2 pay as you Go.

I believe so, that's what I pay at the moment and it gives me GPRS and WAP over GPRS.

Dave, I don't suppose you've managed to calculate the amount of data transfer "Live" consumes have you? I'd be really interested in knowing the frequency of its communication with the internet.

Again, perhaps you'll be able to clarify, but from the looks of live.alk.com we can track drivers actually from the website. If this is as good as it sounds, I'll be so impressed. Does it draw the maps on the website via an applet, or does it rely on the user owning the desktop version of Copilot?

So long as the amount of data, and frequency of transmission, isn't too high...I'm going to have to try this ASAP Smile
