I think a great feature would be to have a reading for total altitude gained. Is this a possibility in a future release?

For sure that's something that could/should come in the already planed "Path stats" page which is going to give you detailed information about a selected Path.

update 0.4.10 is available (minor):

What's new?
  • the accuracy of the GPS Data will be shown

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)

I am sorry - I messed up the Link to the GPSLogger Homepage in the post above...

Since if the new Forum policy I am not able to edit my Posts (after 120min)... so I am forced to make this new one - sorry

So you will find the latest version of GPSLogger at the new GPSLogger Homepage

So after a long period of silence I am happy to let you know, that there is a new Version of GPSLogger...

update 0.4.12 is available (minor):

What's new?
  • additional GPX export (Mapsource compatible) - this export contains not all the data that could be included into GPX
  • Once one Path-Directory is set (required for appropriate function of GPSLogger) you will directly jump to the option screen at program start (till you specify a 'Path-Directory'
  • reordered Options
  • BB-compatible way of preferences (no functional change)

Please note, that with the new Version your GPSLogger settings are lost (but ONLY the settings - your previousl recorded Paths are save!) - so once you will start GPSLogger you have to adjust your options - I am sorry for this inconvenience.

Get the latest version from GPSLogger Downloadpage

my appologize guys - I am so stupid!

update 0.4.13 is available (bugfix):

What's new?
  • You can start GPSLogger (for the first time) will be directed to the options screen and once you save you do not have to to a "battery pull" (since GPSLogger does not crash your BB-OS)

Please note, that with this GPSLogger Version your settings are lost (not effecting 0.4.12 users) - But ONLY the settings - your previously recorded Paths are save! - so once you will start GPSLogger you have to adjust your options - I am sorry for this inconvenience.

Can you tell me, which ExportFormats you have selected in the Options? [and if it's possible for you, can you attach (or PM) me the gpl file?]

I tried the both GPX options, one at a time. Same result. I didn't see a way to attach a file to a PM. If you want it PM me an email I can send it.

Thanks.

I know this is a stupid question but...

The format of the coordinates is:

Lat:35Deg.48'52.74" N
Lon:110Deg.51'20.09" W

How does that "convert" to google maps type coordinates system of decimal numbers? (google default location: 39.773592,-105.042933). I do not know much about GPS or mapping coordinate systems so please excuse me for that.

Cool program though!

Default A Few Ideas

Thank you so much for all your hard work creating such a fun GPS app. I've never had a GPS unit before, but all the functions you've included in the GPSLogger are more than enough to keep me entertained.


I just had a few other ideas for the GPSLogger:

1. I really really like the Night Mode. Is there a way that GPSLogger can remember that as an option / preference, so that the next time I open GPSLogger, it goes directly into Night Mode? (Currently, if GPSLogger closes or crashes, I open the app again, and it's back to Day Mode)


2. Whenever I am recording a tracklog, if I press the Escape button (the U-turn arrow) to move back to the Home menu screen, GPSLogger stops tracking. Looks like I'm supposed to press the red End/Power button instead, if I want to go back to the Home menu/screen AND have GPSLogger continue tracking.

Is there any way you can re-program the Escape button so that it doesn't automatically stop tracking when the Escape button is pressed?


3. I'm not sure if there is a demand for this or how hard it might be to implement. If I load a previously-recorded path, can I resume recording on this same path? So new GPS data points would be added to the old path.

I know that you already include the option to Pause Recording and Resume Recording for a current path. I just thought this idea would be another option for someone who either intentionally or accidentally stopped path recording.


4. My other idea is about navigating a previously-recorded path. I know that you already have keys assigned to navigate a path, but I always forget which key does what. Can you add a menu option that shows all the navigation keys and their functions?


Hope these are some ideas that other people will find useful, too. Thanks again for all your hard work on the GPSLogger!
