the workarround about the custom POI is a competition system (we want switch complete to GPSGate)
however .. there are bunch of police-cars in the system we used before (custom) its a pilot project on a small district.
where the dispatcher can define own POI (poi stored based on the application/department) POI set by department.
its easy done with the google maps api ... (just like buddy tracker does the manual position updates)
put a pint on the position select icon .. some text .. (ajax start a bg file to poke it into the DB) done.
on the next reload, the KML have this poi included and its show on the map.
the use is .. thats the dispatcher can give more easy directions based on the POI ..
its then very easy to determinate the person to call
(you do this desition with help of your eyes anyway)
so if this poi thing take you guys a while i would just do a extra DB .. and create the KML on the fly on the moment Vehicletracker.aspx is loaded
i think this is also a good long term solution.
all i need is some way to get the UID, name or somethig else unique about the logged in user or the application-id is running.
rest is a few lines code
