GPSLogger

Battery efficient GPS Logger

GPSLogger uses the GPS capabilities of your device to log coordinates to a GPX or KML file at regular intervals. This can be particularly useful if you want to geotag your photos after a day out or share your travel route with someone. The purpose of this application is to save you battery power when abroad and to last as long as possible.

Unfortunately the app will crash if you attempt to upload tracks to Dropbox, Google or OSM as keys for these services aren't in the source code. Email is OK, and it works with with one press as long as the SMTP server details are all entered correctly. FTP functionality has been recently introduced.

More recent versions of this depend on proprietary Google Play services, and will not be updated here. There are more freedom-respecting loggers available, such as me.guillaumin.android.osmtracker, which we would recommend using instead.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.

    Permissions
    • access precise location only in the foreground
      This app can get your exact location only when it is in the foreground. These location services must be turned on and available on your phone for the app to be able to use them. This may increase battery consumption.
    • access approximate location (network-based) only in the foreground
      This app can get your location based on network sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi networks, but only when the app is in the foreground. These location services must be turned on and available on your phone for the app to be able to use them.
    • modify or delete the contents of your shared storage
      Allows the app to write the contents of your shared storage.
    • run at startup
      Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.
    • have full network access
      Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.
    • find accounts on the device
      Allows the app to get the list of accounts known by the phone. This may include any accounts created by applications you have installed.
    • read the contents of your shared storage
      Allows the app to read the contents of your shared storage.
