GPSLogger [100% free - 100% offline]
I would like to use the opportunity to present the first release of an application that I have written for the all BB with OS 4.2.1 or higher [successfully tested (by other users and myself) with 8100, 8310, 8800, 8820, 9000 & 9500].
It's a quite straight forward application, that is recording your movement with your BB-phone over time - this includes Elevation and Speed (and some more data).
The main motivation to write this application was first of all to learn how to program my new Blackberry (via RIM's Java API) - The main benefit (compared to a JavaME Midlet) is, that you have full access to the hardware (like the Filesystem) without any confirmation from the user. Of course this will restrict the usability of the application to Blackberry devices only - but well - I own now one - so I do not care ;-)
The second reason for creating a own application was that I wanted to have a GPSLogging application without any kind of online access (so without any additional costs).
Of course I am looking desperately for feedback from other Blackberry Users (specially devices that I do not have tested) - your feedback is highly appreciated.
What you can do with GPSLogger v0.4.10:
You can install GPSLogger "over the air" directly to your Blackberry device* via the following link:
or if you like to install it via RIM DesktopManager simply download a ZIP containing the ALX and the COD:
* 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)
Finally: of course it would be nice, if this application meets your standards, that it can be listed in the 'All-known-gps-applications-bb' Thread (in the section free: 'Tracking, outdoor and recreational related GPS').
Looking forward for your comments
PS: Please visit the new GPSLogger Homepage
Cool I will test it soon.
Looks interesting. I fixed the links and stuck the thread for a bit.

looking forward to your feedback (and even if xmas is not even close around the corner you can post your wishes as well)
Thanks for the application, I will try it out.
update, works great, what is your intended application of the exported data. Are there any good free ones that can inport your datastream and be able to analise some more?
Great app and thanks, keep up the good work.
I hope this answers your question
Thanks emacf1, I was thinking the google for mobile has an import option but it looks not.
Thanks again I will try the full blow descktop application.
I tried it out, and its nice! :D Thanks.
while I was on my way home today I realized, that there have to be a "night mode" as well - so what would be in your opinion the best way to activate it - should it be auto activated by the time? [I assume this will be not so nice when you live not close to the equator]
here is a preview of the upcoming night mode... since I could not decide, which color would be the best I simply made it configurable...
I hope tonight (GMT) I'll can make the next release
I am sorry MODs - but I was forced to update the link in the initial post [since stupid me have delete the 0.4.1 already on the webserver] - The Tooltip over the "Edit" button here say: edit/delete -> so I thought I could clean up the mess myself - now I have to realize, that I can't :oops:
update 0.4.2 is available:
I liked the idea of the app, but found it hard to use. On a 8310:
+ the options had to be explicitly saved via the menu. Leaving the options screen and selecting the "save" option on the dialog did not save the options values. I had to bring up the menu and select "save settings" to get them to save.
+ when my blackberry is in a holster (as it is most of the time when I'm traveling) the app did not continue to map my movement. Is there a way to keep it active while the blackberry is holstered?
The holstered behavior is the showstopper for me right now. With it active while holstered, I'd be very happy with the app.
Thanks for you feedback cbaray - I will look into this issues for sure...
This sounds like it could be a pretty neat application.
Now only if my VZW 8830 had GPS enabled... :(
Once I upgrade to the storm in a few months I will definitely grab this.
Could I ask you to try the following:
1) start the app
2) start recording
3) put the device into the holster
4) travel around - at least for 10min within two mile radius?
5) take the device out of the holster
update 0.4.3 is available:
Leaving the options screen via ESC-Key and selecting the "save" option on the dialog will now save the options.
