Cellular connected GPS tracker
I wanted to make it easier to track my mileage for work, so I decided to build a GPS tracker using some off-the-shelf parts. I used a GPS enabled
Skywire EVDO modem from NimbeLink
and an Arduino to capture the GPS data and send it to the cloud(Exosite) over the Skywire cellular link. I put together a detailed,
step-by-step Instructable on how to do it so others can replicate.
Here is the picture of the complete, simple setup, before putting on my car.
Here is a screen capture of the map it produced after a day of driving:
