MTKutility


MTKutility is a maintenance utility for Bluetooth capable GPS devices that use the MTK or MTK II (GPS) chip. You can:

* configure the information recorded in the log file
* configure the track point recording frequency
* update the Assisted GPS (AGPS) data
* download the log file in binary format
* generate of a GPX file from the download
* store the log files on your external SD card
* configure main screen font sizes

The log file settings screen exceeds Androids' recommendation for screen elements. This eliminates phones with a screen size lower than 480x800 and code is in place to stop the app.

Please contact the author if this app doesn't work with your GPS device. Since the initial release the app has been modified to work with GPS receivers with AGPS, and GPS loggers that do not have AGPS. The app now has extensive execution tracing that can be turned on to assist with determining why the app isn't working.

Note to Holux GPS logger users. Client feedback indicates this app may not produce a valid GPX file from a Holux log. If this is the case for your Holux GPS, you need to transfer the binary (.bin) file to a PC and use bt747 to extract a GPX file.
