I could have something available for option#2 in a week or so, freely available. I've been working on this sort of usecase for some time now, but I haven't been in charge enough to deploy it.And I'm still working on adding supplemental information to the reports from one-way trackers, like how many injured/exhausted bicyclists riding in a SAG vehicle.Andrew, KA2DDOauthor of YAAC
