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.

* Specify distance intervals
* Cell phone tower or GPS satellites
* GPX and/or KML files
* Shows a notification

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

Must start/stop logging if gps signal is lost for a long period and doesn't handle switching between cell and gps. Disappointing.

Thany (***)
Works as advertised. But after a few hours of logging, it seems to start draining the battery much more quickly.

Misato (*****)
Does exactly as described, even recording track points. Lasted 9 hours on my old htc Hero, in 45 temps and rain on mtb. s

Overwrites own files if set in file-per-day mode, and doesn't record anything unless another app forces GPS lock (e.g. LBSTestMode). On Galaxy S.

Radovan (****)
Stops working everytime I pushed it to background after a while. It shows icon, but it's not logging.

Erik (***)
interval works really bad, need cpu wakelock otherwise 60seconds could become 30minutes wich makes app useless (nexus one)

Sux - used this to log a long bicycle ride - but when the day was done only the first 30 min. was logged :(

Seb (****)
Nice.Should be great if it can first rely on cell gps for speed and inside buildings,then (if available) to true gps. Now, its gps OR celltowers gps.

Andrew (****)
Bit uncertain about this "pro" version floating around. But good for detailed OpenStreetMap work, or long-running route recording.

Jonathan (****)
Needs to run as service so that it doesn't get killed.
