Is it possible to display MULTIPLE tracked trucks (or cars) on a CENTRAL MAP? 20 Windows mobile devices have to collect GPS information, a central map (a map residing on a website or a windows server) has to display 20 trucks on the Belgian Map. Is this possible using Open Street Map and OSMtracker for Windows Mobile?

Can someone fix the typo "trakced" to "tracked" to improve searching, thanks.

If I understand this correctly you want to sit in front of a computer and know where the trucks are.
This has three tasks:

  1. Some tracking device in the vehicle must send its location repeatedly (SMS, internet)
  2. Some server has to accept these messages and keep track of the vehicles
  3. You need to display it.

It shoudld not be hard to find some application for the first point (I am not sure if OSMtracker can do that). Third point is where OSM comes - OpenLayers might be what you are looking for.
Your main problem will be number 2. I do not know about any out of th box solution for this, but it should not be too hard to create.
