I have another couple ideas for the GPSLogger:

1. If I have paused recording a path, is there a way that I can still mark a point on my current path while the recording is paused?

2. Is there a way I can merge 2 or more previously-recorded paths?


Also, I saw a discussion on the CrackBerry forums about the possibility of less battery drain if GPSLogger is set to sample less frequently (ex. set the sample frequency to 600 sec, which is 1 sample every 10 min). Has anyone tried this and confirmed that the battery power actually drains slower? Just curious.

Thanks again, Matthias, for all your hard work on this. It's a really fun app, and I use it all the time to make GPS track logs for fun.

thanks for all your support & suggestions... currently I am putting most of my energy into the other I am working on - but I hope there will be an updated GPSLogger soon...

I found a work-around solution to this problem. Under Options, select "Confirm Exit of GPSLogger". This will prevent GPSLogger from unintentionally stop tracking when you press the Escape button. Instead, it will prompt you to confirm that you want to exit the application.

Apparently, the Escape button makes GPSLogger exit completely (ie. shuts down the app). That's why it stops tracking.

Just a quick tip.

Get the latest version from GPSLogger Downloadpage - but please pick the "right" one for your BB OS Version!

I might be missing it but is there a way to rename the log files or give them a name when you start a new track?

Is there a way to assign a key to switch between tabs so that you donít have to hit menu then the view you want. Like 0/space key cycles through the tabs?

It would also be great to be able to restart a stopped path.

And I really, really like the idea if being able to navigate to marked points from the current track, but mostly to points on tracks in the background, and to a location someone sends you or you send to them.

Thank you, and great app!

BBFileScout can do this job - but by default (and with GPSLogger only) the files get "autonames"...

not yet - but I admit it sounds quite logical to implement such a key shortcut...

mhhhhh - not 100% sure yet, IF this can be implemented... normally that's the purpose of the "Pause" function...

... if you are a OS4.6+ owner: have you seen the new compass view? -> there have to be function "guide me to..." in order to make use of this

Wirelessly posted

On my pearl I tried to rename via BBfilescout and when I go to manage my tracks the name change is not there. The track is still there with the old name, when I check it in filescout it has the new name still?

I don't have 4.6, so I can't see the compass. But if I did would it be able to track to a received GPS point or a point that I enter in or from the background?

sorry I forgot this already - in GPSLogger will display the recoded paths by it's meta data (and not the filename) - sorry for the false information

it's not there yet - it have to be implemented... and I think once that is done there will be a "simple" none SVG compass as well - we will see

Default Hey emacf1 -

Any new information on when an update that includes total elevation gained for each track will be available? Thanks for a great program.

Smile Details Page

I did a short hike today to try out the total altitude data on the details page. I went 2.7 miles and climbed a total of less than 100 feet. Yet, on the details page it showed that I had a total elevation gain of 1,355 feet and a total elevation lost of 1,317 feet. There is no way that these figures are correct. Everything else seems correct including total distance, total time, max speed, max elevation and minimum elevation. Any help on these elevation numbers would be appreciated. Thank-you.

Default How accurate is elevation

I went skiing today. This app in the details page says 22k vertical and my watch said 14k. Based on the number of runs, my watch seems accurate.

mhhh - might be I am totally wrong with my calculations... but I thought the algorithm is not that complicated - allow me to explain, how these values will be generated:

Assuming we have 4 points recorded:
P1: alt 10m
P2: alt 20m
P3: alt 40m
P4: alt 30m

what the code does:
// init...
altGaind = 0
altLost = 0

//iterate though all points
P2-P1 = +10
altGaind = 10

P3-P2 = +20
altGaind = 30

P4-P3 = -10
altLost = 10

do you agree, that this approach is the right one? (comparing current Point with previous point - calculating the difference and ig it's positive, that we add this difference to the "altGaind" value, if it was negative we add the absolute value to altLost)...

so assuming we have recorded 1000 points like this
P0001: alt = 1m
P0002: alt = 2m
P0003: alt = 1m
P0004: alt = 2m
P0005: alt = 1m
...
P0999: alt = 1m
P1000: alt = 2m

what would be the altGaind value? -> 500 is that correct? (altLost = 499)...

I would just like to confirm, that I have understood your expectations concerning the altGain value calculation correctly.

Thanks for your feedback!

Your approach appears to be correct but there has to be something amiss to generate numbers that are so far from being actual. Thanks.

... might be helpfull if you can email me your gpl file (the contact email at the GPSLogger HP)...

but I assume, you are going 2km flat out - but each point you have recorded have a small altitude difference compared to the other... as it's said with the 1000 points recorded... the total alt gained is 500m (even if you had the feeling just to go straight ahead)
