Re: portable home-made war-driving gear

no concrete answers (building a similar rig myself right now, so I'll post here as I learn things), but: 1. if you're ntp sync'd when you start, I would think that should be fine. I was specifically worried about GPS accuracy, which is what led me to add a hardware clock module. I probably over-tho...

Re: portable home-made war-driving gear

Looking good! You decided you could do without the realtime clock module? Ive been debating whether or not to add it to my new pi 4-based rig. Honestly, I never even thought about it, lol. Half my bag of phones are starting to battery bloat really bad, need something to replace them soon, wanted to...

Apple consolidated DB access

Hey all, One of the biggest disappointments moving over to an iPhone this year was losing access to wigle on my personal phone. Sounds like you can use the AirPort scanning tool to scan with, but the txt file it spits out doesn't seem to do the trick. If it still works, what's the preferred way to p...

Re: Tips and tricks for maximizing APs?

Noted that this is two years old now, but a trick I've learned is to leave one device at home plugged into a battery pack that allows use while plugged in so that if power is lost at some point and device is constantly scanning, it'll still scan in the event of an main failure (better idea is to da...

Re: Tips and tricks for maximizing APs?

I run with a handful of random android devices, here's thing I've noticed over the years, personal experience, ymmv, etc: Options/settings: Each device is different. I go with a "who needs battery life give me more dots on maps" standpoint. All but one of my devices do best with scanning set to cons...

2.49 path tracking kicks ass

Hey Wigle crew, just thought I'd pop in and say damn good job on this path tracking addition, it's awesome. The resolution on the path is great, perfectly followed me through a shopping mall last night, and even perfectly mapped me doing donuts in the office parking lot this morning. Haven't done a ...

Re: Do vehicles use 5GHz APs?

To answer my own question, and for anyone else who was curious, the answer seems to be 'no', at least without going hardcore into looking at vehicle manufacturer specific mac addresses, etc. Looking at what's obvious, stuff like: "Bob's Silverado" and "Ford sync_X9879", it's all 2.4. So feel free to...

Do vehicles use 5GHz APs?

Hey all, I like to leave a couple of devices grabbing cars that drive by, and having a device or two sitting in front of the house seems to do the trick. I have a couple junk phones that do a good enough job, but they're 2.4GHz and bluetooth only. Would it be worthwhile to use one of the better devi...

Best possible settings for Android app?

Hey all,

I've got a few extra phones I'm using strictly for wigle. Since I'm not too worried about battery life, performance or usage outside of the app, anyone happen to know what the best all-out settings are for the android app?
