GPS Logger for Android

GPS Logger for Android


A lightweight, battery efficient GPS Logger. The purpose of this app is to log your GPS coordinates at specified intervals to a file on your SD card. This app runs in the background so that you can on a long walk, hike, flight ride or photo session or even go buy some milk and have this running as long as possible. Once you're back at your computer, you can then use the files to geotag photos, upload to travel sites, view in Google Earth and so on.

***Features:

* Specify time intervals
* Specify distance intervals
* Cell phone tower or GPS satellites
* Log to GPX, KML, CSV or NMEA files
* Shows a notification
* Imperial display units
* Auto start on boot
* Auto send to email/FTP/DropBox/Google Docs/OpenStreetMap/OpenGTS at intervals
* OpenStreetMap - upload GPS traces
* Dropbox - upload GPX/KML/ZIP/TXT
* Google Docs - upload GPX/KML/ZIP/TXT
* OpenGTS - auto send or upload points

Bugs, feature requests, questions - please submit them to github.com/mendhak/gpslogger (issue tracker).

Translations - submit to http://crowdin.net/project/gpslogger-for-android/invite

***Notes:

GPSLogger is not a MyTracks replacement. MyTracks is meant for short use (as it has a lot of features running), GPSLogger is meant to last a long time.

A data connection is used by this app only if you use auto-email or OpenStreetMap or Dropbox features.

Although the app allows 0 second frequencies, it is not recommended as the recording and logging is happening very fast; this could cause instability/hangs. Try 1-3 seconds instead.

If there's a feature that you feel the app should have, you can submit a feature request on the github site.

***Explanation of permissions:

Storage - reading and writing files to the GPSLogger folder on your SD card

Network communication - used when uploading the files (Dropbox, Openstreetmap) or sending emails or authorizing you with Dropbox, Openstreetmap

Your location - used to determine your GPS or tower based location

System tools (automatically start at boot) - used if you choose to start GPSLogger on bootup

Your accounts - used when authorizing against Google Docs and when uploading to Google Docs

User reviews of GPS Logger for Android
piece of crap stops working the instant the screen is turned off or switch to another app

Could be better. Exports KMLs as placemarks, rather than geometry items :( They should do it like this site: http://android.hibal.org/#Data check the KMLs there!

GREAT. It logs my GPS positions. I use this for Geotagging with google gpicsync.

i would like it even better if a) I didnt have to explicitly turn on tracking after starting app. b) i could get it to write to a particular file until i tell it otherwise. c) get it to auto-start with phone being switched on

Worked great for me on a hike. The battery life was decent and the data imported easily into Google Earth.

Great Works as advertised. @developer: Would it be possible to zip&encrypt before uploading to gdrive? And could you add SSH upload?
