Hi All,

I have to develop a vehicle tracking system. I have gone through 'Google Map API' and Google Map Tracks API' tutorials. i-e;

Google Map API (Web) : https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/tutorial
Google Map Tracks API: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/tracks/getstarted

My basic scenario will be as follows:

We have to track the phone moving in a vehicle. There should be some application on mobile to get its current location and send this info to the web application on some server for monitoring purpose.

I am not asking for the code. I just want to know that

For phone application: What part should I use (Google Map Tracks API or something else)? What is the best language to develop a phone application?

For Web Application: Should I use the Google Map API? What is the best language to develop the web part?

My only confusion is selection of right technology for right device? I am not sure about Google Map Tracks API (it should be part of phone application or web application or how to use this?)

One more thing, I was trying to set the authentication part of google map tracks api in php and successfully authenticated on my localhost (desktop machine) using google+ acount credentials. Will this also (php) work on mobile?

Note: I am open to develop in any language.
