I want something I can log a two week, 5,000 mile trip on - with no computer. I only travel with a smartphone, and just want something to collect points while I travel, that automatically pauses when I'm not moving.

Get home, and connect it to a computer to see all the data.

I just did that actually. Trying to keep it as simple as possible.

Sounds perfect. Any idea of when you'll have it available? I have a trip coming up, and will be buying something that has these features.

Some time around the MotoGP in Austin. Mid April.
It would be good to do a shakedown first.

How does it split the gpx file, is it by on/off or by day/week/month if it's left hard wired and on?

Looks good BTW

Right now it's on/off, then you can stitch them together from the Windoz app. (Just writing it in Java so Mac and Linux users can use it)
There is also a button that pauses it. The files are saved by date and UTC time.
I guess I could put another button on it, if it's pressed and the device is turned on, then it just adds to the previous file but that's more programming work...

Over on Expedition Portal a hack was posted that allows Bad-Elf tracks to be ported to a shared Google Map using Dropbox. Requires a data-connected smart phone and the Bad Elf GPS receiver, but you might be able to incorporate some of it in your tracker.

I've been toying with making something similar but have purchased a GPS module that apparently has built in logging capability. My plan is to attach it to the Arduino to load the sketch and start the internal logging. Then while applying power to the module (single cell Li-Po battery) attach it to my riding jacket, for example, take a ride and when I return extract the captured data. I just picked up a couple 750mAh li-po batteries and the module appears to at least lock with just the battery connected.

I also picked up this GPS module in a different form factor. Since I'm still learning about both the Arduino and GPS stuff it's been a pretty rough start.

Zozie, are you providing the sketch you are using or are you anticipating making this a commercial product??

Thanks,

Rick

Cheers, I know my phone app is meant to do auto splitting if it gets to a certain size, but it's never a problem as I only have it running when needed due to battery drainage.

Making it Mac friendly is defo a plus point in my book

I'm just rewriting in in Java so it'll work on linux/Mac desktops...
