Anybody?
even if I assume, that F2 and FF2 are equal logins...
  1. go to the options dialog and specify the Export Format(s)
  2. from the main screen select 'Manage Paths (prev. recorded)'
  3. now you should see all your saved Paths
  4. now select the Path you would like to export and choose either: 'Export Path to Filesystem' or 'Export Path via Email' from the Menu. Please note, that the 'Export Path via Email' item is only visible, when you have specified a recipient in the options dialogue.

I hope this clarify the function.

The main problem with this is, that's right now impossible for me to test a possible implementation... since I do not know what I should do in my code in order to do exactly the things that are done under the hood when you are doing these steps... Of course I believe, that it would be possible to CODE such a behaviour - but since the absence of a GPS-Puck [and that I am not aware, that it would be possible to have a GPS-Puck in the Phone Simulator?] it's almost impossible for me to write such a code right now

All I can try is that you specify a Bluetooth device name in the options, and that GPSLogger tries to connect to that device at startup...

In any other case I would require some hardware donations - or somebody in my area would come by (at the weekend) and we will develop this feature together

update 0.4.6 is available (minor):

What's new?
  • You now can specify the GPSLogger font size. Select between:
    • Small (= BB Default Font Size/1.5) [that was GPSLogger default]
    • Medium (= BB Default Font Size/1.25)
    • Large (= BB Default Font Size)
  • Auto line wrap of all status data (depending on font size & text that have to be displayed)

I can see the difficulty if you can't make it start just a "generic" Bluetooth session, but specifying the device in the options would work for me since I always connect to the same puck.

I'd love to drop in and help out (it's been a while since my last trip back ) but unfortunately I'm an ocean away...

One other question, would it be possible to list direction and distance to saved (labelled) position points?

Default No Data

I downloaded and installed it to day on my Storm (Verizon). When i start the app, I get NO DATA received, and it tells me to start "Path Recording". My VZ Navigator works fine, but I cant seem to get this to give me a position.


Any Ideas?

Thanx

you mean without moving the cursor to the specific marked point? -> So getting "details about a recorded Path"?

Please be so kind and search here in the Forum for "Verizon" and "GPS"... I am still new here too but I have already learned, that there are some Providers, that block certain phone features (or even made them available for certain apps) - I have read, once you have started such an APP (that have GPS with Verizon) and then switch tasks, and then launch GPSLogger it might work.

Would it be possible that you give me really a step by step instruction, what you are going to do before you start GPSLogger... and I really mean step by step [assuming that I would be a totally noob and you have descripe every single click (and menu item you select)]

TIA!

I think the path view will give you some details about the cumulative distance travelled by scrolling the cursor to each point on the path.

Here's an example I was thinking of: you mark your start point with a specific label and then go off hiking all over the countryside. Some time later you might want to know how far it is from your current location straight back to the start point (or any other point you have given a special label). Maybe there could be another "view" with a table of distances from the current location to the user-labelled points.

Sure

Phone is already on. I turn on the GPS puck. Then I turn on Bluetooth on the Pearl via the screen icon. Finally I start GPSLogger via the screen icon. Then it takes a moment or two for the Bluetooth connection to be established and for the logger to get the gps data and display the satellite fix information.

Keep in mind that my GPS puck and Pearl were paired some time ago, so they recognize each other every time I turn them both on.

This is an issue for me:
Let's say I on a "path" and after 4250 feet, I hit pause and the distance stops
accumulating. Works fine. I then resume after an indeterminate amount of time,
and the distance starts back at zero and accumulates from there. I then hit
stop recording after 3250 feet.
How far was my total distance? I am not exactly sure, there is no view of my
total trip, just the individual distances from one pause to the next, so I need
to manually calculate how far the whole trip was by adding the individual
pause point distances.

So for me, it would be nice to have a grand total of distance traveled for
each path.

Thanks for your feedback rojocrandall, indeed it's a some sort of none logical [honestly I did not test much the pause-function (and the side effects)]... actually there is anyhow the request to get some sort of details-page for a recorded path... I think it makes sense to make there also some more logical summaries...

update 0.4.9 is available (minor):

What's new?
  • Correct calculation of total Path time & distance when using the PAUSE function
  • Support for OS 4.2.1 - and so now 8100 devices are supported as well

unfortunately I did not managed to get OTA working with BB 8100 (4.2.1) Series devices - so if you are an 8100 owner, please download the zip below and install GPSLogger via DesktopManager (or javaloader)
