Looking for a PocketPC app that would use the phone GPS to:

1) Log location every x minutes
2) Preferably support being triggered by SMS
3) Has to be stealth, runs in the background and at system start
4) Would be nice if data was posted to a server or emailed as location changes.
5) Would be nice if an SMS or IM could be sent and instantly the location was sent back.

I know this is a basic question but I keep trying applications that either are not able to be stealth or they just don't work well.

Thanks

Instant feedback of position would require the GPS to be switched on all the time, on entering a building it would have to remember the last known good position fix, whilst staying powered up looking for a signal - 4 hours tops from a fully charged battery is about all you will get so its not really viable for a mobile phone - Mike

Thanks Mike, this is less of an issue because in this situation the phone is plugged in a lot then on the move for maybe an hour at a time.

I'm just writing such a program in Python, for Nokia phones.
I don't know if PocketPC does support python,and if PocketPC python supports bluetooth connection and SMS handling.
