Application description

A lightweight GPS logger, battery efficient, GPX/KML, add notes, share, upload.

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

* Cell phone tower or GPS satellites
* GPX and/or KML files
* Shows a notification
* Use phone time or satellite time
* Imperial display units
* Auto start on boot

* OpenStreetMap - upload GPS traces
* Dropbox - upload GPX/KML/ZIP
* Google Docs - upload GPX/KML/ZIP

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

***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
