    Found a good smart phone app that will assist with this functionality. It's called BTraced. I reached out to the developer and paid them to modify the outgoing xml to accomodate it to send OTM formatted XML that OTM will read as a message. It sends the device ID, LAT, LON, and other pieces of useful info. Anyone can now use this and if you want some info on how to use the geofencing functionality I can give you some pointers. I did a 75min presentation at the OTM SIG 2016 conference in Philidelphia regarding my work with tracking events and sending a customer text message notification letting the customer know that their delivery is on the way based on a driver entering in events into the OTM Mobile App. But now I have removed the driver from the equation by using the geofencing and the BTraced app running in the background.

    Anyone interested reach out and see how you can improve your business. No charge.
