Cell phone App.

Postby Bryan Meenen » Mon Sep 11, 2017 10:04 pm

With the proliferation of cell phones these days and the number of available satellites they can track. Is there any interest in developing an app for collecting GPS data? I am using a couple of different apps that will allow one second data collection and importing that data into tru-traffic. The data is more accurate than my older gps equipment collects. It has to be imported and thus flagged as imported even though it is a higher quality.

Thank you for the interesting comment and suggestion.

I had not put much thought into creating a cell phone app, as I assumed (or hoped) that there was already a suitable app available for collecting the data. I had not considered the disadvantage that the so-collected data would get marked implicitly as imported. I'll put more thought into this, now.

In the meantime, what apps have you found with 1-second resolution and good accuracy? Other users, and I, would value your recommendations.

Thank you!

I forgot to mention: You can reduce the annoyance of the "Imported" labeling by turning off the warning in View: Preferences: Warnings: Trip Logs have an unverifiable source, for example, imported from a text file.
