I have tried several GPS apps over the months, but so far all have fallen short of what I want. My needs are:
- Takes a location at short intervals, and writes it to a file (KML or similar open format).
- Keeps the GPS active between points, rather than turning it off and restarting a fix each time.
- Starts tracking a path as soon as it is launched, without needing to press buttons or choose menus.
- Continues tracing in the background or with the screen off.
Applications I have tried:
- GPS Trace: Meets criteria 2, 3, and 4; fails 1. Defunct (no longer on market)
- GPS Logger: Meets criteria 1, 3, and 4; fails 2.
- GPS Essentials: Meets criteria 1 and 2, fails 3 and 4.
- Tasker: Meets criteria 3 and 4, 2 partially, fails 1.
Is there a solution for GPS tracking that meets these criteria? I would be happy to pay for such an app, especially if it included additional features such as the ability to be turned on or off from Tasker. Thank you.
