Unfolding the magic

Lets first have a car and a route ready for the journey.

// Get the DOM node to which we will append the map
var mapContainer = document.getElementById("mapContainer");
// Create a map inside the map container DOM node
var map = new nokia.maps.map.Display(mapContainer, {
// Initial center and zoom level of the map
center: [52.51, 13.45],
zoomLevel: 13,
components:[

Gps car.jpg

We are now ready with the car and the route, what we need now is continuous coordinates from the GPS device to track the position of car on the map. To access GPS device we have to use nokia.maps.positioning.Manager() Nokia API.

We will be using watchPosition method to continuously get feed of the GPS sensor coordinates to position the car icon. The watchPosition (successCallback, errorCallback, options) function returns a Number Starts periodically watching the positioning sensor and fires events containing the data, if there are changes ocurring

/* The positioning manager is only available if the browser used supports
* W3C geolocation API
*/

if (nokia.maps.positioning.Manager) {
var positioning = new nokia.maps.positioning.Manager();
 
// Monitors current position, if available the first given callback function is executed periodically else the second
positioning.watchPosition(
// If a position is provided by W3C geolocation API of the browser
function (position) {
var coords = position.coords;
marker.set("coordinate", coord);
//the car should be in the center of the map. :)
map.setCenter(coord,"default");
// Force immediate re-render of the map display
map.update(-1, true);
},
// Something went wrong we wee unable to retrieve the GPS location
function (error) {
var errorMsg = "Location could not be determined: ";
 
// We determine what caused the error and generate error message
if (error.code == 1) errorMsg += "PERMISSION_DENIED";
else if (error.code == 2) errorMsg += "POSITION_UNAVAILABLE";
else if (error.code == 3) errorMsg += "TIMEOUT";
else errorMsg += "UNKNOWN_ERROR";
 
// Throw an alert with error message
alert(errorMsg);
}
);
}

TODOs

  • In this example, the route of journey wont be recalculated. It will stay as it is. We should make the script in such a way that the first point of route should be the car (GPS location) and the rest of the points should be as it is.
  • As the car moves, periodically the route should be recalculated after a specific period of time (say 1 minute to reduce data transfer)
