This is a very lightweight app for Android devices with only one objective: To record GPS tracks saved as GPX files. Very small memory footprint (750k). All you need to do when you want to start tracking is to press the Record button and to press the Stop button when you want to stop. Later you can retrieve the GPX track files from the "GPX Logger" folder of your phone. You can explicitly set the recording frequency to 1 sec and also set the minimum distance to record (so that it doesn't record redundant points while you're waiting at traffic lights, for instance).
I prefer this app to Google's My Tracks because GPX Logger is capable of true 1-second tracking whereas My Tracks will only have occasional 1-second tracking at best. My Tracks does have the advantage of being able to record waypoints however.
- Lightweight, only 750kB
- Straightforward interface. Press Record to start tracking; press Stop to stop tracking
- Internet connection not needed to track. Doesn't access the internet unless you want to view the track against an online map.
- Cannot save waypoints while tracking.
