Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

So Kyle and I were talking about Where's Tim, and we decided we need to make it more of a replication of a business Automatic Vehicle Locating (AVL) solution. So when we are talking to potential clients about what EnGraph can provide them, we use this page as an example. One of the things that every AVL product needs is messaging. So we added a feature where you can click the icon and in the info window is a place to enter your return address and message. Using AJAX, the message is sent to my cell phone and returns a confirmation when it has been delivered.

So far, I have only been able to get messaging to work inside of Internet Explorer. Firefox and Safari seem to choke on it. If any web gurus want to help me out, I would appreciate it. I also had trouble with the Yahoo version that I am working on. I think it has something to do with the button type I am using, but I'm not sure.

In the future, we also want to add a searchable history, geofencing with alerts, MapPoint web service compatibility, ThinkGeo compatibility, speed exception reporting, idle time exception reporting, and anything else Kyle thinks of.

How about a 'How far is Tim from me?' function?
