I'm looking for someone to help me with coding for a GPS project.  I'm a mobile app developer, who is still pretty green, but I have some great ideas.

I need to have a GPS unit on a mobile business that once activated, will send out a notification to a designated radius that it is there.  Has anyone seen this before or heard of a company using something similar?
Anyone interested in helping me with this project?

Thanks in advance,
Brandon

Welcome to the Ranch

Send out to notifications to whom? The receiver obviously needs to have a receiving ability.

The idea is that the gps will send a notification to mobile app users withing (2mi, 5mi, etc).  It's like the reverse of checking in when you arrive somewhere.  I want the business to be able to check-in and it notify the app users that they are there and open for business.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
