Logging will be of great use in a crowded city with multiple access points, you could drive around with your laptop behind the seat gathering data, stop for twenty minutes to look at the logs and go back to your desired target using the GPS coordinates listed in the logs. Or coordinates could be combined with Google maps to see a visual representation of Bluetooth and Wi-fi devices in the vicinity. If your target is not approachable by car it is possible to attach an antenna to your wardriving device and extend its range.

The application will be included in a future hacking live DVD of the same name being developed. Advanced Linux users can already download WarCarrier tool code, you will need to have Airodump-ng installed for WiFi monitoring and logging.
