In this Location Tracking project we will track the location of the mobile user automatically when the message sent is matched with the code that is set by the developer in the application. If not it will be as a normal message to the mobile and will be stored in inbox.

This application can automatically run in background once it is installed until it is uninstalled. Here in this project we set a code which is itself a password and this code must be sent in the form of message from another mobile. This application can be installed in any android mobiles.

It is a project that you can able to find the location of a mobile which is been lost or missed. Our application can be very useful to the user because it is the only application that can trace the exact location of the mobile.

Our application must be installed in the mobile whose location is to be traced and in our application a code is been set. When our mobile is lost or missed we send a message with code to the lost mobile from another mobile, the application on receiving the message checks whether it matches with the code. If it matches then it sends a message containing the location to the sender’s mobile number.

This application works in background and the user cannot find this application on the mobile screen though it is installed in that mobile.This application will be supported by all the network providers.

This application makes use of GPS services and internet services in the mobile. For developing this application, we use components like broadcast receiver(), service() ,etc.

Existing system limitations:

The current system has no application to track the location of the mobile through an SMS. In the previous projects the message sent will be sent as a normal message to the other mobile .

But there is no application developed for location tracking automatically by receiving a predefined message without the user’s permission.

Proposed system with features:

In this project we are proposing a new form of messaging to get the location back as a reply automatically. In this project we will send a Message to my mobile, it will authenticate the message and reply the location if code is matched.

The main feature of the proposed system is, we are developing an application in such a way that it tracks the exact location of a mobile. For this application we are using features like broadcast receiver (), service (), etc.

This application makes use of internet services, GPS services in the mobile and based on this services it gets the location and sends it to the message sender’s phone number.

Our application can be very useful to the user because it is the only application that can trace the exact location of the mobile. Our application must be installed in the mobile whose location is to be traced and in our application a code is been set.

When the mobile is lost or missed we send an message, the application on receiving the message checks whether it matches with the password.

If it matches then it sends a message containing the location to the sender’s mobile number. This application works in background and the user cannot find this application on the mobile screen though it is installed in that mobile.

Generally in android market you will not get any applications that can find the location of the lost mobile by sending an SMS.

Finally we are proposing a new technology to find the location and according to the user flexibility named “Location tracking”.
