Can I programmatically determine exact location in Windows Store app? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to write an app that tells me if I am within 1 foot or so (1 meter if I have to) of a location.  We plan to have this app running on a Windows 8 tablet with built in 3G such as a Panasonic Toughpad.

    It will be in a feed truck that drives the length of the trough of a pen of animals (~100 ft in length).  During the feeding of a pen, we want to compare the percent traveled vs percent of feed delivered to help the drive distribute evenly.

    I'm new to Windows Store development (an old WinForms guy).  Can a C# Windows Store app do what I need it to do?  I'm not even sure I can do it with a WinForms app, but since I keep hearing that Windows Store is the future and WinForms is on the way out, I figure I better go with the more modern platform (although it may be missing things since so new).

    Thanks for any feedback.
