About this app

Inspired by OSMTracker for Windows Mobile, allows you to track your journeys, mark waypoints with tags, voice record, and photos.

GPS traces can then be exported in GPX format for later use with OpenStreetMap tools like JOSM, or uploaded directly to OpenStreetMap.

Tracks can be displayed over an OpenStreetMap background or with no background if you don't have a data plan.

The controls are not very easy to figure out. I have a hard time figuring out how to stop a recording in progress. I don't know what most of the controls on the main screen are for. It's not intuitive how to save your GPX recording somewhere. I tracks well, but doesn't show anything like distance covered, elevation, etc. I guess this app is meant for uploading data to OSM, but it's not great for a general purpose GPS tracker for hiking or cycling.

A simple straight forward GPS tracking app. I use it for MTB riding and Nordic skiing for years. Fairly accurate and locks onto the GPS signal better than other apps I have used. Does not drain my battery too fast. You can mark waypoints, and take photos at those spots for reference. Others use it for plotting maps on OSM. I have no time for that but the tools are there.

Useful to record GPS tracks, including compass direction. Can either export to GPX files or upload to OpenStreetMap. I also use the tracks to convert videos into geotagged photos for uploading to Mapillary. Sometimes gets stuck at "Waiting for GPS fix to enable buttons", but I can work around that. The facility to show a background map is useful.
