    Google Maps, note that the you cannot use the free version for vehicle tracking. Article 10.9.C of Google Maps API Terms and Conditions explicitly prohibits using the standard (free) Google Maps API for non-public fleet management and asset tracking. You would need the Google Maps API Premier to legally use Google Maps for these kinds of applications.

  • The key word there is 'non-public'. Surely miss.eleanor wouldn't you suggest Bing?

  • miss.eleanor,

    Can we use Google Maps API Premier to integrate GPS to our website ? Any details about the API ?

  • Won't Bing do the job for you?

    I've only used it in a trivial manner myself but the nerddinners app makes it look pretty good.

  • I went through the websites which uses bing api . But they are showing the google map only. I want to integrate   GPS technology   in my website for location tracking( may be a mobile website).  Is bing api a solution for it ?

  • I would think so.  Take a look at the example.

  • Essentially Google want you to pay for non-public, wheras Bing make you pay if you use the API alot. Otherwise there is little to choose between the two...unless you go mobile (or Silverlight) and then things become far more interesting. Key thing is read the T&C carefully or you could end up with a very big and unexpected bill.

    I wasn't considering costing.
