Gps Gsm Location Python S60

        Hi Guys,

I've just put together two smaller Python apps I've seen around in this discussion board.

The resulting app prints 1) info obtained by a BT gps (i.e. $GPRMC sentence, but may change as you like) and 2) GSM cell id.

My wish is to collect these info periodically (i.e. 2/3 minutes) and send them back via an HTTP POST to a specified host.... could anybody help? ;-)

Thanks

-Luca
