My hat is off, good job, I like the way GPSLogger works.

It took me a minute to figure out that I had to enter "store/" or "SDCard/" to begin browsing the path to stash the files.

I tested v0.4.2 on two AT&T 8310 Curve's with full cell and data coverage and two AT&T 8820's with no SIM Card. (with custom WiFi connections).

Very nice ... this is rapidly becoming my favorite logger.

Just a couple of observations:
1) it *does* work with external bluetooth GPS pucks, at least it does with mine (I don't know if you enabled this capability since the first release or were not aware that it worked)
2) the shortcut keys don't work well for a Pearl 8100 since "b" and "n" are on the same physical key

Servus.

v0.4.3 works well.

I just installed it around 10:15pm and it looks good in the night mode (Blue).

How tough would it be to 'email the resulting file'? Or upload it to a web site?

Thank you very much for your positive feedback guys - it's really appreciated

That's very interesting - no I did not change anything since the initial implementation - this means, that RIM API will make also external GPS Devices available via the default LocationProvideInterface - that would be really cool - this this would mean, that I do not have to do anything to support external devices

Would be good/interesting to see if others can confirm this - since I can't test this environment at all.

Yes you are right - I have the same problem with the virtual keyboard on the storm [that have to be solved in the next release] - but I hope the trackball nav will work on your 8100?

yes indeed having some folder icons before the text would make it way more obvious...

you mean the exported KML & GPX? [personally I store the exports always on the SDCard and either plug in the SDcard then into my PC card reader - or I use the DesktopManager to access the files on the device]

On thing I am going to add for sure in on of the next releases is, that you are able to copy the current position into the clipboard, so that you can paste it into a SMS or email (to let somebody know, where you are)

Thanks again for your feedback
Matthias

That is a better idea than email the file.

update 0.4.4 is available:

What's new?
  • Copy your current location data into the Clipboard to be able to paste it in a SMS or eMail (or where ever you like)
  • Options:
    • Instead of Exporting to the FileSystem the Exported files can be send by eMail
    • Specify the recipient list (when you have chosen eMail-Export) - separated multiple recipient eMail addresses by space
  • Load previously recorded Paths
    • Navigate with the Keyboard though your Path (updated key mapping)
      • a|s: Start Position
      • e|r: End Position
      • y/z|x: 15 Positions back
      • c|v: 1 Position back
      • b|n 1 Position forward
      • m: 15 Positions forward

update 0.4.5 is available (really minor):

What's new?
Instead of configure in the option dialogue, if you want to export to the filesystem or to a eMail recipient (list) I have now added an additional "Export via Email" Item to the Path-Screen. So now you can select the export method by choosing the appropriate menu item.

What's next ?
Actually to be honest, I am running shortly out of ideas, what else could be integrated into the GPSLogger...

Here is something I just can imagine to add (but i want to hear your opinion first, if you find this useful): You can enter a Location and then you will be directed into the direction of this location... This can be used for geocaching... but I have another use case in mind... Thinking about your friend owning also a BB with installed GPSLogger... in this case you can send your friend via GPSLogger & PIN-Messaging your location and then you can see how close (and in which direction) he is...

Yes I know there is now "Google Latitude" for this - but honestly it would come never ever to my mind to tell Google where I am moving around... So this possible new feature would be to share your location with your BB-Friend (to be able to guide him into your direction - so that you find each other in a crowded place).

Or do you have other suggestions/features that make sense to add? If not I do not mind, then my next project will be a FileExplorer or a AudioBookPlayer.

V 0.4.5 works well with a T-Mobile Pearl (running HH v4.5) and the TomTom MKII puck.

The email function delivers better than I imagined it would.

The geocaching idea (or Find a target) would work well.

Hat's Off.....

Seen on another logging program: a menu link to download the local weather (from Weather Underground, I think) based on the current coordinates.

How about a feature that sends me the current direction of my blackberry if it gets the email request? Of course it should only send to predefined email address and only responds if it's from predefined email... with certain keyword too.

But then it might be too many features for simple tracking program. Above idea should really be its own program.

I found it also works with my Freedom 2000 Bluetooth puck on Verizon 8830. (OS 4.5)

Colored me lost, at least as far as saving, exporting or doing something with the log I just did.

I just logged a 16 mile bike ride. The path shows on the "map" but I don't know how to save it. I tried sending and the email only shows that:

"Lat:47Deg.xx'12.00" N Lon:122Deg.xx'49.88" W #Sat:6 Alt:250ft
300W V:0.5mph ( 6.6mph) 2:19:19/15.3mi
(all data in WGS84 format)"

( edited out the lat/lon data)

No gpx or other file? No data stream?

Maybe I goofed. I did not specify folders before the ride, only after I got home.

Anybody?

Aside from my earlier suggestion to add a menu link to local weather from Weather Underground based on current coordinates, I thought of another couple of things:

Maybe a larger font for the satellite info that's at the top of every page ... it's a bit small on the Pearl's screen.

And lastly, the built-in BBmaps automatically turns on my Bluetooth, thereby saving 1 of 3 steps (turn on GPS puck, turn on Bluetooth on Pearl, start logger or navigation program) ... would it be possible to add this to GPSlogger?

Ok I see various people having problems with the font size - it's always YOUR_DEFAULT_FONT_SIZE/1.5 - but I assume you will not like to change your default BB font size just to make GPSLogger readable for you - so expect another option for setting the font size in GPSLogger....
