    Smile displaying device dynamically in google maps

    I have a Java ME application installed on a nokia s60 that updates a MySQL database as to the devices location every 30 seconds.
    I can display the route followed by the device in google maps on a webpage
    by using a combination of javascript and xml.

    What I want to do now is display the location in real time. That is get the webpage to ubdate dynamically from the location table and clear the previous marker each time it updates the web page
    I think i will need to modify the javascript
    GDownloadUrl("phpsqlajax_genxmlDOD.php", function(data) {
              var xml = GXml.parse(data);
              var markers = xml.documentElement.getElementsByTagName("marker");
              for (var i = 0; i < markers.length; i++) {
                var TDLN = markers[i].getAttribute("TDLN");
               // var address = markers[i].getAttribute("address");
                //var user_type = markers[i].getAttribute("user_type");
                var point = new GLatLng(parseFloat(markers[i].getAttribute("lat")),
                var status = markers[i].getAttribute("status");
                var LatestLocUpdate = markers[i].getAttribute("LatestLocUpdate");
                var marker = createMarker(point,status, TDLN,LatestLocUpdate ) ;
    to delete the marker before each iteration and introduce some sort of delay to delay the page update?

    Also I'm thinking of modifying the phpsqlajax_genxmlDOD.php file which queries the database and currently selects all items from the relevant table and change this to select the latest entry,
    // Select all the rows in the markers table

    PHP Code:
    $query "SELECT * FROM DriversOnDuty WHERE 1";
    $result mysql_query($query);
    if (!
    $result) {  
    'Invalid query: ' mysql_error());

    Would greatly appreciate advice in this ...

    Re: displaying device dynamically in google maps

    sorry but javascript is no java so this isn't the right forum for that...
    same goes for php...
