Current Title: Dash Buddy
Basic Description: The Dash Buddy can help provide mile per gallon (MPG) information and service reminders.
Every time a user refuels their car they can submit their current millage, location, price, and gallons to the tracking website via sms, email, or dash express (DE).
Users should be able to track multiple vehicles with several different DE units.
The tracking website will provide detailed information including but not limited to monthly statics, graphs, pricing information, etc... including MPG data. The site should also be able to compare the average temperature on a selected range.
Service Reminders -
With the knowledge of how many miles you have driven it should have the ability to send email reminders or alerts at user defined intervals.
I am looking to have the website and API all developed, I would like the website to match the style and colors of [url removed, login to view] (the GPS website)
The site should support multiple administrators, offer the ability to export data, utilize Google Advertising & Analytics (I will provide code)
My primary email service will be on the Google Apps ([url removed, login to view]) to provide integration of the sms/email it should be able to access it.
I have attached a document talking about the API and how to use the system.
The website should also have a mobile version for wap or wireless phones.
