    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.

    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

    Activity recognition - to recognize when phone is still and to pause logging

    Using this to send every minute my gps coords to an server (as long movement is detected to save on the battery) which send it to an mqtt server to which homeassistant is connected so it know if i enter/leave zones. Running it like that since weeks and works flawless.

    Great app with a minor bug. On Note 8 the setting to avoid notifications does not work. Workaround: block the app in android settings.

    Very useful app with a lot of track saving palaces and track preferences. All features look like author thinks what he does and doesn't implement it just for fun. Real developer! Thanks a lot for nice app!
