A great mapping and trip logging app. Uses the built-in GPS/GNSS device in your Windows 10 Phone or PC/tablet to map and log your trips. View the path in real time on the installed Microsoft Here map, log your trip and save it to a GPX file. Saved files can also be imported into Google Earth, Microsoft MapPoint or Streets and Trips and many other apps that read GPX files.
Download the app on your Windows 10 PC/Tablet AND your Windows Phone. The app and the GPX files are fully compatible.
Import/export placemarks to a local file or cloud storage file. The files are saved in clear text XML format. Edit them and resave in any text editor.
Saved GPX files can also be used with FreeLogBook.biz to help keep electronic logbook and track mobiles within a company. http://www.freelogbook.biz/home/
Now works under lock screen or in the background!
This app is designed to be used with the GPS/GNSS Geolocation device built into some newer tablets and Windows phones. If you don't have a GPS chip in your device then you can only view maps, you can't track your position. (Please don't give it a 1 star rating for something limited by your hardware and not the app :)
(The tracking does not work with an external GPS connected by USB or com port. Even if the device is installed inside the laptop, if it is on a com port it does not work. This is a Windows 10 thing, sorry.)
Update May 2017: I have received an unconfirmed report that it may work on a Surface Pro 4 with external USB GPS. If you know this to be true, please contact me and tell me how you did it.
There are two different versions available depending on your operating system. Windows 10 and Windows 8.1
- Offline Maps! After the maps have been downloaded an internet connection is no longer required to update the map tiles.
- Add unlimited number of custom placemarks on the map.
- Traffic updates (Requires internet connection).
- Replay GPX files from any source, in real time as recorded or accelerated speed.
The app should also be able to load and display GPX files from other GPS devices, such as Garmin Nuvi etc. If it does not please send me the file that doesn't work and I can update the app so it does. Send it to email@example.com , thanks.
If your GNSS device in your PC/tablet/phone still works outside Wi-Fi or cellular service the logging and mapping will continue in Road map view. The Aerial map tiles may not update however and may not be downloadable for offline use.
Let me know if you need a translation for your language, if I get enough requests for a specific language I will attempt to add it.
App too expensive? Search the store for GPS Logger, it is free to download and use, but is ad supported and only allows up to 3 custom placemarks.
