Speedview (Tracking for Android Devices - GPX Output)

Postby tympg » Sat Dec 29, 2012 8:06 pm

If you have an Android device, you can use Speedview to record GPX tracks on your phone.

I like this app because, although it is mainly a speedometer app, you can get it to record your trip easily. The GPX file is output in the Speedview folder in the SDCard / storage of your phone.

And unlike other Android apps I have used (mainly cycling or running apps or even "My Track" by Google), Speedview's records the GPX tracks in one-second intervals, which is precisely what we want in a good track for mapping purposes.

The app is flexible enough to turn off or on the recording feature (the blue Log On area in the diagram below) whenever you want to.

Here is a sample of my track, which I converted to GDB (using GPSBabel) because MapSource doesn't seem to like Speedview's GPX format (but GPSMapEdit is fine with it).

Thank you bro for sharing the info. Although I have yet to try it, I noticed that "Speedview" GPX has to be converted (similar to "Sports Tracker") to GDB or GPX for Mapsource to open whereas "My Tracks" GPX, saved in SD Card, can be opened directly with Mapsource. Also in "My Tracks", one can use the Pin Marker to mark the POIs. Both also have a 1-sec tracking capabilities. These are just my observation. :-)

The Alert Mode for Speed Warning is not available in the Lite version as opposed to the Pro version I suppose.
