Hi, you need a GPS device to get location details. Try Xexun TK-103. The GPS device will contains the following,
1. GPS Unit - Used to find out the location (latitude and longitude).
2. GSM Unit - Transmits the GPS data(latitude and longitude) to the remote server.

The GSM Unit contains a SIM card, It will sends GPS data in 2 modes, one is by SMS and other one is by using GPRS data. Before use the GPS Device, we need to configure it. Each device has its own configuration settings and methods, so choose a device and follow the configuration that the device manufacturer provides with user manual.

By using GPRS, GPS Device will sends location information to a remote server, before that we need to set the remote server's IP address and PORT in the GPS device. Once the GPS Device is configured, it starts to send location information to the remote server as TCP packets. The remote server must be publicly accessible.

Now, In the server side, we need to develop a TCP server in C# that have to listen to the PORT specified in the GPS Device. By using this server program, you can process the received data and you can show it on the map using Map APIs.
