LogGPS is a GPS data logger recorder utility that saves all GPS data when you press the 'Save' button. The saved data includes notes, date and time, longitude, latitude, altitude, horizontal accuracy, vertical accuracy, speed, course, heading, and heading accuracy. The notes are not cleared between saves so you may save multiple data points with the same notes or you may manually clear or edit the notes between saves.

LogGPS is an ideal application to use for remote GPS data gathering with the intent of importing the GPS data into another application. LogGPS does not do any direct mapping and therefor it does not require any network access. Because it does not require network access and currently does not record in the background it is fast and very easy on battery life.

LogGPS now has a Big Button mode that make the entire screen a 'Save' button. Once activated, touching anywhere on the screen saves the current GPS location. This mode was designed specifically for city administrations to log locations for follow-up code enforcement inspections. Big Button mode is cancelled by exiting LogGPS with the Home button.

it is possible to show any saved location using a map application. Of course, it only works if you have network access.

There is also a 'return to location' function. After selecting a saved location, select the 'Return To' button and a new view will appear that shows the course, bearing, distance, and time to return to the saved location.

The user may view all saved GPS readings. Individual readings can be deleted and notes edited.

Clicking ‘Export’ allows sharing the collected data as a comma separated (CSV) text file and a GPX file. Data is exported without any transformations (metric units and UTC) regardless of the display settings.

Once the data is exported and a file selected, it can be emailed, sent to other applications, saved in a common file area, etc. using the 'Share' button

Settings in the Apple Settings application allow:
- Metric or US Customary Units for displayed distance.
- Local device time or UTC for displayed time.
- DMS or fractional degrees for displayed latitude and longitude.
- Sorting newest readings at top or bottom.
- Selection of mapping application (Apple Maps, Google Maps, Google Web.)

Fails at data export

Like this app in principle. I use it for projects where I need to record locations with a little note. But why can I not export this data in a "modern" method like Dropbox or email a txt file? I'd pay $5 for that.

Developer Response ,

This has been fixed in version 4 and later.
