You might need to reset AppWorld™ in order that the latest build will show up. See our faq's How to reset BlackBerry AppWorld™

What's New

  • Support for multiple Open Map data providers: With this release of GPSLogger it is possible to access a variety of different open map data servers directly from the application itself. This means you can now have Bing!Maps, GoogleMaps, esri or MapQuest (just to name a few) with you!
    This variety of different maps (for different purposes) makes a great addition to the existing BlackBerry Maps implementation. With the open map data its now even possible to display maps for counties which are currently not supported by BlackBerry Maps.
    All details can be found in the new 'Open Map data' Section of the manual.
    Please note that the Open Map data functionality is currently a BETA-Version and this function has a hard coded EOL date in this Version of GPSLogger - this end date will be the 01/15/2014.
  • Outdoor Navigation Enhancements: In the past couple of weeks I have started to ride with my mountain bike again - actually I have realized that GPSLogger would not fit perfect to my requirements - so I have started to create a complete new Version.
    If you like you can read more details about my riding experience and the impact on GPSLogger in various threads in the emacberry.com forum - here is a short list:
    As result of my experience GPSLogger is now comming with additional Navigation Views, new navigation distance notifications and an alternative to the 'Always display ON' functionality.
    All details can be found in the new 'Outdoor Navigation - Best Practise' Section of the manual. This section is actually a MUST READ for everybody who want to make use of the outddor navigation functionality of GPSLogger.
  • Devices with a Magnetometer-Sensor can now adjust the calibration settings and minimal signal quality via additional General Options in GPSLogger.
  • New General Option: Include 'altitude delta' in distance calculation - default: OFF
  • Multiple different options for the enhanced outdor navigation functionality:
    • New General Option: Show Navigation Path - default: ON
    • New Apperance Option: Navigation Path Opacity
    • New Apperance Option: Background Path Opacity
    • New Apperance Option: Additional View spliting Option
    • New Outdoor Navigation Option: Notification Distance
    • New Outdoor Navigation Option: Backlight ON Distance to Waypoint
    • New Outdoor Navigation Option: Keep Backlight ON for n-Minutes after waypoint was reached
    All details concerning the different options (and how to use them) can be found in the 'Outdoor Navigation - Best Practise' Section of the manual.
  • Desktop GPSLogger Open Map data Tool (available separately)
    Downloading Open Map data with GPSLogger II on your BlackBerry can be quite a time consuming task. For your (any my) convenience I have created a small Desktop tool, that is able to perform the downloading task from a machine with probably more CPU power and network throughput - YOUR desktop PC or Mac.
    All details (incl. the download link) can be found in the 'The Open Map data Desktop Tool' Section of the manual.

2013/09/01 - Release of GPSLogger II v3.1.0.8 (OS4.6+ only)

Maintenance Release

What's Changed

  • Import of KML or GPX files will check for single or double quoted XML attributes
  • Make sure to update to the new Version before 15.Oct.2013

2013/06/30 - Release of GPSLogger II v3.1.0.6 (OS4.6+ only)

Sports Tracker Enhancements

What's Changed

After a bad GPS-Signal experience during a racing bike self-experiment I have made several adjustments to GPSLogger II in order to make it more usable as sports activity tracker.
  • New setting in the 'Global Section' called 'Path-Smoothing'.
    This function create the average (Ø) between the last received GPS-Fixes (instead of using the plain data that was provided by the GPS-Sensor).
    During my "self-experiment" I had a very bad gps signal over a longer period of time - this has caused, that the recoded path was just 'fiddle-faddle'. It was recorded that I have cycled 20m to the north and next second my location was recorded 10m back to the south - then again 15m to north - followed by another fix that was again 10m in the south compared to my previous location.
    Since I was not traveling that fast that Heisenbergs uncertainty principle could be applied, this zigzag recording had a massive impact on the calculated distance that I have cycled - at least what the application has told me.
    In order to solve this I have came to the conclusion, that GPSLogger should have the ability to smooth the data that will be provided by the GPS-Sensor. The easiest way to do this is by taking the previously recorded gps-data and calculate some average values.
    When the GPS sensor of the device is providing a location fix GPSLogger will take previous the previously received GPS-fixes and calculate the average values for:
    • Latitude
    • Longitude
    • Altitude
    • Time
    • Horizontal & vertical accuracy
    • Number of satellites
    The speed & course of the new 'smoothen' location then will be then calculated based on the distance, time and location of the previously 'smoothen' location (the speed & course information given by the GPS-fix will be ignored in this case).
    The number of GPS-fixes between which the application is calculating the average value can be adjusted. You can select between OFF, 3, 5, 10 and 15. Please have in mind that a value of 15 only makes sense if you use a low sample interval (like very second).
    You can see a comparison of the recorded path BEFORE and AFTER the smoothing in the forum in the following thread: GPSLogger for Sports Tracking.
  • As an alternative to the automatic path-smoothing while logging the new build of GPSLogger II is offering some additional functions that can be applied after a path has been completed (or to and loaded path). So when you are viewing a path the following new key-board shortcuts are available:
    • [SHIFT]+[E] - Erase current marked location
      As a quick and easy solution you can now remove any location in the path by just pressing the SHIFT+E (e = erase) keys - this modification will just happen in the memory and has no effect on the data stored on the file system of your device.
    • [SHIFT]+[F] - Flatten Path
      This function will create a complete new path (again just in Memory) where GPSLogger creates average values of the last 5 records in the path (lat, lon, alt, time and # of stats).
      Please note: If you have 'Path smoothening' enabled in the options, GPSLogger will use the configured number of previous GPS-fixes in order to calculate the average value
      Please note that you can apply this function multiple times after each other - you will also notice that the turns will have a smaller radius (specially when you apply it multiple times)
    • [SHIFT]+[B] - Backup Path
      This will save the path currently in memory to the file system (of course with a different name). So you can use later the modified path (no matter if erased location fixes or flattened)

2013/05/12 - Release of GPSLogger II v3.1.0.3 (OS4.6+ only)

New Coordinate Systems

What's Changed


2013/04/10 - Release of GPSLogger II v3.0.0.4 (OS4.6+ only)

Reworked GUI Components

What's Changed

  • GPSLogger and GPSLogger II have been developed over the past 4 years - thats quite a long time for an app! It's really amazing how time goes by...
    While the app functionality have been constantly improved over time there are some areas that have been totally untouched since the initial release.
    One of these areas are the option screens. Of course with each release new options have been added - but they have been never reorganized. With the new release of GPSLogger II v3.0 all option screens have been redesigned and got now a fresh new look.
    In addition to the new option screen design all input dialogs have been reviewed and most of them got redesigned. For example when you mark a location in your current path:
    In the past the input was requested in a separate screen - in the new build this is just a popup screen.
  • In the previous build the logging file format was changed - with this change it was unfortunately not possible any longer to mark locations - or better it was possible to mark them - but they never had been saved. In the new build this issue have been fixed.
  • By press and hold [ESC] you can close/cancel the directory browsing screens (no need to go up to the system root anylonger)
  • Finally you might wonder how it could be that so many changes have been implemented in such a short period of time (since the last v2.7 release was just a couple of days ago). I don't really have a good answer - it was just that I had a lot of fun coding for the legacy BlackBerry platform and I felt the need that GPSLogger II should look a bit better.

2013/03/29 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.7.1.8 (OS4.6+ only)

New file format & more...

What's Changed

  • The new build of GPSLogger II have changed it's internal file format that now allows to write the path while logging. With other words the path will be constantly saved and no data loss can occur (e.g. by a crashing device or running out of battery). Every location fix that will be provided by the GPS-Antenna will be instantly recorded.
    If you have the need for the previous file format you have an additional option to store the old format once the recording is ended. This additional option can be enabled in the general options of GPS-Logger II.
  • The new version allows you to save the original GPS-NMEA-DATA in a separate file (once the recording is completed). The NMEA-Data can be used with other applications or web services. Yes this feature is quite technical - but those of you who can interpret the data might find them quite useful (at least I personally had the requirement to have access to the core NMEA-Data).
  • In the new build it's again possible to start the logging even if no GPS-Signal is currently present. With this you can launch GPS-Logger and instantly start the recording process without the need of waiting for the first GPS-fix.

2012/12/10 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.7.0.9 (OS4.6+ only)

GPS-Status display and some tweaks

What's Changed

  • The GPSLogger status bar will display some additional GPS-LocationProvider status information.
    If GPSLogger does not display any additional information at the beginning of the status bar, everything is fine. But as soon as GPSLogger does not get a frequent update (if 'brute force recovery' is enabled) or if the device itself is notifying GPSLogger concerning a LocationProvider status change, then you can see [GPS "OUT OF SERVICE"] or [GPS "TEMP NO SERVICE"] as first entry of the status bar.
  • The new introduced 'Time' field in the status bar can additionally contain the seconds ('T:hh:mm:ss').
    As all status field information this info can be turned on/off via the 'Appearance & Startup' settings in the GPSLogger options.
  • The status bar on top of GPSLogger can contain an additional 'Location Counter' - This field would let you know the number of locations that have been recorded so far. Normally this number should be constantly increasing while you are logging.
    As all status field information this info can be turned on/off via the 'Appearance & Startup' settings in the GPSLogger options. By default the display of this counter is OFF.

2012/11/19 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.7.0.5 (OS4.6+ only)

Enlarged screen components & better "lost" GPS-Signal recovery

What's Changed

  • With the the increased screen resolution of the latest BlackBerry devices (like the Bold 99xx or the Torch9810) the size of the current location indicator, the logged path and the position markers have become quite tiny.
    The new build includes an additional checkbox in the 'Appearance & Startup' section which allows you to enlarge the rendering of this parts on the GPSLogger screen.
  • The status bar on top of GPSLogger will contain an additional 'Time' field ('T:xx:xx').
    This will be the actual time of the recorded location fix. The time format (and time zone) depends from your default device settings.
    As all status field information this info can be turned on/off via the 'Appearance & Startup' settings in the GPSLogger options.
  • Over the past couple of month I have received reports that for what ever reasons on never BlackBerry devices there seams to be an issue with picking up the GPS-Signal after the signal was not present (e.g. cause of a Tunnel or being inside a building).
    Even if from my point of view it should be the task of the core OS to provide a constant GPS signal flow (including resuming after an 'OUT OF SERVICE' or a 'TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE' period), GPSLogger came already with a "Use 'brute force' LocationProvider recovery" option. This code have been restructured & reorganized in the hope that the updated implementation will also work on newer Devices & OS Versions.

2012/09/14 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.6.0.8 (OS4.6+ only)

OS7.x Devices: Magnetic compass support

What's Changed

  • Support for the Magnetometer Sensor that was introduced with some of the new OS7.x models (like the Bold and Torch). This Sensor is providing the heading information based on the magnetic north. The sensor is way more accurate compared to the GPS-Signal and is is updating very fast. This makes all direction based functionalities of GPSLogger II (like the "CarFinder", the "GeoCacheing feature" or the "OutDoorNavigation") way more accurate.
    Please note that is important to calibrate the compass (accessible via the Menu) to get valid results. Specially when you have a device with a slider (Torch) and have started the app with closed slider and would like to use the app with your keyboard open state - in this case a re-calibration after you have opened the slider is highly recommended.
    And like the nature on an real compass you will get the best results when you hold your device (display up) flat in the hand (overhead use is not supported).
  • Correction for the display of the alternative Longitude & Latitude information that was introduced in the last build.

2012/08/27 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.5.0.7 (OS4.6+ only)

eMail Account configuration

What's Changed

  • If your have configured multiple eMail accounts on your device then in this new build you can select which account GPSLogger II should use when the application is going to send eMails [e.g. notifications or alerts]. The selection of the eMail account that GPSLogger II is going to use can be made in the general options section.
  • Some maps (e.g. nautical) make use of a slightly different format - instead of 60 seconds these maps use 100. In the Appearance & Startup Section you can select if you want to use this different kind of display for the location information (Longitude & Latitude). You find the checkbox at the bottom of the section (StatusBar Customization)

2012/05/07 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.5.0.5 (OS4.6+ only)

Share location via SMS

What's Changed

  • When GPSLogger II have a location fix, you can instantly send your current location via SMS to any of your contacts with a single click in the menu.
    In the menu you will find a new entry called 'Share Location (SMS)'. Once the application has some location information you can select the new menu item and GPSLogger II will show you your contacts (address book). Select one recipient (no support for multiple recipients) and you might need to select the phone number to which the SMS should be send. After you have selected the number the location information will be send instantly (all data is in the WGS84 format - this is important to know - especially for the altitude information).

2012/03/15 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.5.0.3 (OS4.6+ only)

Holster Fix

What's Changed

  • With the last update (v2.5.0.2) there was an issue when you had running GPSLogger II in the foreground and have put the device in the holster. When you taken the device out of the holster again GPSLogger II did not updated the screen anymore. Without going too deep into the details (since the root of the issue is once again in the core OS) this issue has been fixed in v2.5.0.3

2012/02/15 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.5.0.2 (OS4.6+ only)

Battery lifetime & general responsiveness

What's Changed

  • Battery lifetime enhancements - the new version of GPSLogger should (hopefully) treat the Device battery a bit better. Please note that requesting constantly a GPS fix is quite a heavy task for your device but in the new version various changes have been implemented in order to extend the battery life of your Device as long as possible - specially when you allow the Device to turn the Backlight OFF or send GPSLogger II into the background.
  • The opening the PathManager or LocationManager is now happening asynchronous - this would allow you to cancel the reading of all your Paths/Locations and should make this actions way more responsive.
  • The BlackBerryMaps View can be completely disabled (or only be disabled while on Roaming). When you are using GPSLogger II either in a country that does not support BBMaps (yet) or you like to avoid any kind of data traffic you can completely disable the Map View in the 'Appearance & Startup' options.

2012/01/17 (& 15) - Release of GPSLogger II v2.4.0.5 (OS4.6+ only)

Expiration Fix
Since GPSLogger II is still a β build, its containing a fixed expiration date - this is just to ensure that only the last recent builds are used. Normally with each update of the app the expire date will be pushed way forward into the future. This is something I have forgot completely in the past updates that have been released.
So that's why all GPSLogger II users have run into this problem at the 15.01.2012 - I am very sorry for this inconvenience and I instantly took all required actions in order to solve this issue asap.
First of all a temporary v2.4.0.4 build was released in order to allow all GPSLogger II users to continue to use the application. This temp version was released on Sunday Morning - at the same time I have submitted a new BBM-Integrated Version to AppWorld™. The guys at RIM did a great job and they approved the new build ultra fast - Thanks a lot Folks!
So since the Morning of the 17'th January 2012 (GMT) the new GPSLogger v2.4.0.5 is available in AppWorld™ [You might need to reset AppWorld™ in order to get the latest GPSLogger II version delivered. See our FAQ's for details.]

What's Changed

  • Of course the Expire Fix
  • The 'Request RemoteLocation' Options dialog will display the Contact Name beside the PIN Number in the 'Restricted PIN List'. Please Note that the name will be only read when you add a new PIN to the List.

2011/11/15 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.4.0.3 (OS4.6+ only)

BBM™ Integration Enhancements & Small addon

What's Changed

  • Hosting and joining a Public BBM™ channel will be now announced via the BBM™ User Profile
    So when you like to host your location to a public channel simply enable the 'Post recent activities to my profile'.
    Joining a public hosted channel have become way more easy - simply click on the "Follow Me" Item in the GPSLogger II User Profile box.
  • Post your location (frequently) to your BBM™ User Profile
    In order to update your BBM Profile frequently with your current location you need to be enabled this feature in the BBM™ Integration Options of GPSLogger II
    You can select between: OFF, each minute, each 5 minutes, each 15 minutes, each 30 minutes or each hour
  • Click on a Location in the BBM Profile of another GPSLogger II User in order to load the user location as direction record in GPSLogger II.
  • Sharing location information by eMail will include more & localized data (Elevation, Course and Speed).
  • OS7.x main application icon size adjusted

2011/08/30 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.3.1.2 (OS4.6+ only)

GPS-adjustments & Option Documentation (partial)

What's Changed

  • Adjustments to the different GPS-Modes [specially 'Assisted (GSM/iDEN)/MS-Based (CDMA)'.
    Details about the different available GPS-Modes (and the difference between them) are include in the new created 'General Settings'-Manual page.
    I hope with this adjustments (and the provided documentation) the use of GPSLogger will be much more transparent. Personally (since I am in a GSM environment) I have switched from 'Default' to 'Assisted / MS-Based' Mode.
  • Uncaught 'java.lang.Error' at application start (if essential permissions are missing) fixed.
    A few users have reported that at the launch of GPSLogger they just get a Error. This Error could had happen if some essential application permissions have not been granted (PERMISSION_SECURITY_DATA / PERMISSION_HANDHELD_KEYSTORE - see 'Application Permissions'-Manual page)
  • In the GPSLogger Manual some additional chapters have been added which explains various Option-Dialogs like 'General Settings', 'Appearance & Startup' or 'Remote Location Request Settings'.

2011/08/12 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.3.0.9 (OS4.6+ only)

What's Changed

  • New Center Option (when a direction record is present)
    Sometimes a current direction record can be quite away from your current location. So when you zoom in the direction record might be not visible any longer (in Path- & Map-View). The new function allows you to toggle the location that will be centered on the screen:
    1. Your current location (that is the original implementation)
    2. Current active direction record [e.g. a Remote Location (either via BBM™ or via RemoteLocation Request)]. This will allow you to Zoom IN/OUT and with that you can see in detail about the area of the current direction record (aka your buddy)
    3. Middle between both GPSLogger II will center the middle between your location and the current active direction record (remote location). With this option you should be able to see both locations (depending on your current used zoom level). This still might fail if you and the other location are not on the same continent (Max ZOOM level of BlackBerry-Maps might not be large enough).
    You can toggle between these three options by pressing the [9] key of your keyboard.
    Please note that you need to enable the Option 'Center Location' (Appearance & Startup) in order to make use of this functionality.
  • When you make use of multiple views a vertical divider line will be drawn
  • Improved handling of potential exceptions during startup (missing permission related) - I hope with this additional implementation everybody is able to at least start the application and get the appropriate information what is needed to adjust.

2011/08/09 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.3.0.8 (OS4.6+ only)

Initial Welcome Dialog revised / BBM™ public host Chat fix

What's Changed

  • Revised initial Configuration & Information Dialog: DISCLAIMER & BlackBerry-Maps Info added
    GPSLogger II makes use of BlackBerry-Maps (if installed). Please note that if BlackBerry-Maps is not supported in your country then GPSLogger II can't display any map information. The list of currently covered areas can be checked at the following site: http://us.blackberry.com/smartphones/features/blackberry_maps_more.jsp#tab_tab_coverage. If your area is not listed, you still CAN USE GPSLogger II - just without the map overlay functionality (the usage of GoogleMaps is not possible).
    Additionally the YES/NO Confirmation-Popup-Dialog have been replaced with just two buttons in the initial Welcome Dialog.
  • Adjustments to integrated BBM-Chat functionality when hosting a public GPSLogger II channel

2011/08/02 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.3.0.5 (OS4.6+ only)

BBM™ connected - optimization

What's Changed

  • This build implemented the switch between the default GPSLogger II Version and the 'BBM™ connected' Edition in a complete different way. This should make it again possible to launch GPSLogger II via 3'rd Party Launcher applications that have issues with the previous implemented switch. This should also fix the issue that in some cases (permission related) GPSLogger II could not be started at all.
  • Request Remote Location
    In the previous build the 'Request Remote Location' feature was only working if BBM6 was installed - in the default Version the feature did not work at all - I am sorry for this flaw that slipped totally though my fingers. With the 2.3.0.5 this feature will work for both Application variants.
  • Fixed 'Module Verification Errors' reported by some users.

2011/07/10 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.3.0.2 (OS4.6+ only)

Request Remote Location/GPL & GPP as ContentHandler

What's new?

  • Request Remote Location (and use it as navigation point)
    With this new functionality you can request the GPS-Location of any other BlackBerry Device that have also installed GPSLogger II. Of course you can't request the location from anybody - there have been added plenty of options and settings to allow you to restrict access to this new functionality. All this can be done via the new 'Remote Location Request' Options.
    • Enable Remote Location Request Service: Of course first of all you are able to turn this new feature completely ON and OFF. When the Checkbox is unchecked all incoming location requests will be ignored.
    • Restrict access to PINs: You can restrict the location requests to only specific PINs. This means as long as a Location request does not come from a PIN that is in your list, the request will be ignored.
    • To add a PIN to the list you need to press the 'Add Contact' Button. This will display all contacts of your BlackBerry Address Book that have a PIN assigned. If your list is empty please ensure that you will edit your BlackBerry Contacts so that people who should be able to request your location have a PIN-Info in our AddressBook.
    • To remove a PIN you can select the PIN and press the 'DEL'-Key or select 'Delete PIN XXXXXXXX' from the Menu.
    • Keep PIN-Messages: By default GPSLogger II auto deletes the incoming GPSLogger-PIN-Request and Response Message. Turn this Option OFF if you like to keep the requests and responses.
    • Audio Alert if Location is requested: If you like to be alerted when somebody is requesting your location GPSLogger II can trigger an Audio Alert. Please note that you need to configure the Alert in the Global Device Alert Settings - It's listed as 'GPSLogger II - LocationRequest Alert'.
    Once you have received a Remote Location request Reply the received location will be used as navigation point in GPSLogger II. So in the direction view you can see the the distance, ETA and all the other information that is useful when you like to get to that location.
    Since my wife owns a BlackBerry as well since a couple of days, this function became very handy. E.g. when she is at the crowded beach with the kids and I want to find her when I want to join her after work. Just sending her a Request and few moments later I know where to go!
  • GPL & GPP as ContentHandler: Finally you can open *.GPL (Paths) and *.GPP (Locations) files from anywhere (e.g. from a eMail attachment or from BBM™) directly with GPSLogger II.
    I am surprised myself that it took me so long to finally add this to the application *shame*.

2011/07/04 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.3.0.1 (OS4.6+ only)

Adjustments for BBM SDK 1.0 & more fixes

Quick OTA-Update Links

What's new? / What's fixed?

  • BBM SDK 1.0: GPSLogger II have been adjusted to match the latest API-Changes of the BlackBerryMessenger APIs. Please note that you need BBM 6.0.0.111 (or higher) to make use of the BBM™ integrated features of GPSLogger II.
  • GPX-Import enhancements: When exporting and re-importing GPX files with GPSLogger II the named locations will be kept (instead of giving each waypoint in the path a own generic name)
  • Scale adjustments: The Scale in the Path & Map View will make use of a smaller font
  • Fix: ETA-Time calculation in Timing View based on the overall average speed (ETA: Estimated Time of Arrival)
  • Fix: Timing View display again Time & Distance when logging is paused
  • Fix: (I'll keep my fingers crossed') "Uncaught exception: DSC: Duplicate Sync Connection" when updating

2011/06/21 - Release of GPSLogger II v2.2.0.8 (OS4.6+ only)

More handy features & fixes

What's new? / What's fixed?

  • Always Center Location on Map: A new option in the Appearance & Startup Options allows you to keep your current location always centered on the center of the display. This feature can be used with the Map- and with the Path-View and can become quite handy when you are using the Outdoor-navigation function. Actually I have to admit that this feature was missing for quite a long time and finally it's there.
  • Export Elevation in KML: a new switch in the Export Option allows you to include the elevation values in the KML in a format that allows to display the altitude of a location in GoogleEarth correctly. Ideal for logged flights.
  • Unload Location: In addition to the unload Navigation Path you now can also unload the current Target Location (the location to which the device is currently pointing)
  • PathDetails Popup (in the PathManager) will include various Date information (Start-Location Date, EndLocation Date & LogFile Date)
  • Fix for Overall Time & Distance display when Minimum Speed Setting is configured and the current speed is below the minimum logging speed
  • Fix for Elevation plausibility check
  • Fix for imported Path's (where the timestamp information was missing)
  • Fix for BBM-Notifications (include remote timestamp information) (fixed in 2.2.0.7)

2011/06/07 - Release of GPSLogger II [v2.2.0.6] (OS4.6+ only)

BBM (6.0) integration, BlackBerry Maps integration, Multiple Displays & way much more...

Quick OTA-Update Links

What's new?

  • Append Logging: With GPSLogger II it's possible to continue the recording of a Path (e.g. the next day - or after switching the battery). Simply load a previously recorded Path with the the Path-Manager and then select 'Append Logging' from the #Menu. This allows you to record different stages of a multiple day trip in a single log file. Please note that the original path file (to which you will append) will not be overwritten - for each appending session a new file (with the date of the appending day) will be created.
  • BlackBerry Maps: Beside the 'classic' PathView an additional MapView have been integrated - when this view will be used (only available if BlackBerryMaps is installed) the logging path will be drawn on top of BlackBerry Maps. This implies that then GPSLogger II will use a online connection in order to draw the content of the map (if not already cached). If you like to avoid this additional data transfer you should use the classic PathView or you can turn of the Data Service of your device (specially when you are on Roaming). GPSLogger II will work like before if Data Service is disabled!

    As additional option for the Map View you can:

    • Enable/disable the rotation of the map depending on your current heading
    • Select the Map opacity (in "Day-Mode")
    • Enable/disable Auto-Center functionality while logging (if enabled GPSLogger II will ensure that always the complete path will be visible on the map)
  • Additional Views: With GPSLogger II you can have now up to three different Views on the Screen. You can specify in the 'Appearance & Startup' Options beside the 'Start View' now also an 'Additional View1' and an 'Additional View2'.
    • Once the additional views are enabled you can toggle them ON and OFF by using the key shortcut [1] or [2].
    • When you use three views then by default the screen will be split asymmetric 50% for the Main view and 25% for each of the additional views. If you like you can disable the asymmetric split (also in the 'Appearance & Startup' options) and use 33% for each of the views.
    • When you have the Path-, Map, Speed or the Elevation-View as first additional view you can make use of the [ALT]+[I] to Zoom In and the [ALT]+[O] key shortcut to Zoom Out.
  • Emergency Alerts: Any sportive activity can have the risk of having an accident. Would it not be perfect to have somebody watching you? GPSLogger II does exactly that. Your device can send an automated Emergency Alert eMail when you are not moving for a certain (defined) time.
    • Specify a Minimum distance (in Meter or feet) you have to move in a specified time. When you do not move the specified distance in the specified time period an eMail will be send automatically to the specified recipient. Please note that the notifications will be only send when in logging mode - if you stop logging (or enter the pause mode) no notifications will be send.
    • Beside the time interval and the distance you can specify the recipient(s), the subject and the eMail body
    • The send notification will include a GoogleMaps link to your current position as well as the complete logged path in order to make it as easy as possible for anybody to locate you.
    • Please note that this feature would required data coverage (for sending the eMail). So if you are around in an area without (or only temporary) data coverage this feature will be useless!
  • Sharing Location (spammy!): This is quite a simple solution to send every n-Minutes your current location to a eMail recipient
    • This implementation offers a simple way to send your current location via eMail - sure there are other services with the same functionality but these services are webbased and this means that your location data have to be stored on a 3'rd party database. If you don't like to share your location information with people you don't know this new GPSLogger II feature will allow you to do so.
    • Beside the time interval you can specify the recipient(s), the subject and the eMail body
    • Each send eMail will include a GoogleMaps link to your current position.
    • Please note that this feature would required data coverage (for sending the eMail)
  • Configurable StatusBar: Finally the StatusBar information is customizable - decide which information you like to see
    • Toggle visibility of the StatusBar with the [0]-Key
    • When logging you can select a AutoHide timeout for the StatusBar
    • Specify in the 'Appearance & Startup'-Options which information should be displayed
  • Additional new Keyboard shortcuts:
    • Volume Up/Volume Down: next/previous main Display
    • [SYM]: Pause/Unpause while logging
  • Elevation plausibility check: Sometimes the GPS-Antenna deliver strange values for your altitude - GPSLogger II have a new General Option that allows you to check for the plausibility of the Elevation values of a path. This check (& fix) will only be applied when you are loading a previously stored path so the original data will be untouched. The check will look for up/downhill grades that are larger then 150% and if such an implausible elevation is detected simply the previous value will be used. Please note that you should turn off this functionality when you use GPSLogger II to log your sky diving activities.
  • Additional information: When you use a Sample Interval that is smaller then 1 Minute, GPSLogger II can show you two additional information (Please note that both values depends from your selected Sample Interval):
    • The climb in percent (over the last minute) [gaining 100m of altitude over a distance of 100m will mean Climb 100%]
    • The average speed over the last Minute (will be displayed as "LMinØ" in the TimingView - LMin=Last Minute)
  • The Distance Alert [GPSLogger: Special Options] can be now be configured in the AudioProfile Settings - Will be listed in the 'Others' Section as 'GPSLogger II - Distance Alert' - make sure that you modify the audio volume if you would like to hear the tune.
  • GPSLogger v1.x was my first BlackBerry application with all consequences and it was finally time for a complete redesign. Technical GPSLogger II is a complete new developed application based on the experience I have made over the last two years. I invest quite some time in order to make the difference as small as possible between GPSLogger v1.x and the new GPSLogger II. Under the hood the complete code had to be rewritten and none of the original GPSLogger v1.x code have been reused in GPSLogger II.

Additional BBM-Features of GPSLogger II
(require BlackBerryMessenger 6.0 to be installed & configured)

  • Invite one or more of your BBM-Contacts to follow you
    The invited BBM-Contacts will receive constantly the host location. Please note that the invited BBM-Contacts needs to have GPSLogger II installed as well.
  • Start or Join a public Host
    Create a public BBM-Channel that anybody (with BBM6.0) can join. GPSLogger II will update your Personal Message with the link information and additionally copy a join-link into the clipboard so that you can paste it in a eMail, SMS, Twitter or Facebook. Users who would like to join your public BBM-Channel can enter this link in GPSLogger in order to follow you. As host you can specify an additional audio signal (configurable in the BlackBerry Notification Settings) to get notified when a client have joined your session.
  • Client Options when joining a host
    • Send your (client) location to the host
      Once you are connected to a host you can decide if the host should see your client location as well. The host itself can select which client (if multiple clients are connected) he would like to get displayed additionally on his device. Also the host have the option to instruct all clients that they should not submit their location at all.
    • See only the host.
      By default you see your own location and additionally the host as navigation path, so you are able to follow the host. When you enable 'See only the host' then GPSLogger II will use the remote host GPS-Signal instead the one of your device. This allows you to do everything with the remote signal (that you normally do with your own signal) including logging.
  • Send previously recorded Paths and Locations to your BBM-Contacts
    Since BBM6 allows you to share files with Friends you can send previously recorded Path or Locations to your BBM-Contacts. This functionality is available from the PathManager and the LocationManager screens.
  • Invite BBM-Contacts to Download GPSLogger II
  • Join the GPSLogger II BlackBerryMessenger Group by scanning the QR-Code.

2009/08/28 - GPSLogger release of 1.7.1.0 fix of the fix (public β)

What's fixed?

  • My apologize - never use WHILE statements when you are not sure, if the condition ever can become false - I have put that in my pipe and smoked it - the freezes had nothing to do with "older devices" or anything like that. The problem occurred in unlucky combinations of default device font settings and the GPSLogger font selection.
    I have corrected the code and thanks to the help of Joachim the problem is fixed now.
  • Logger does not stop logging anymore when distance signal is used (was reported by users in the forum)

2009/08/24 - GPSLogger release of 1.7.0.1 public β fix

What's fixed?

  • Some older devices seams to have problems with the intensive use of the fillPath function - this causing some devices to hang up in direction/compass view (or when using the "foolproof" pause option). Hopefully with the update to v1.7.0.1 this problem is fixed.

2009/08/01 - GPSLogger release of 1.5 public β

With this version of GPSLogger a complete new feature is introduced - outdoor navigation - since this can get quite complex and complicated I decided to release a public beta version in order to get as much feedback as possible. I hope to read your valuable feedback in the emacberry.com forum.

What's new?

  • Outdoor Navigation! - All Details about this new feature (and the corresponding new options) can be found at the Outdoor Navigation documentation.
  • When logging a new MenuItem called 'Bring me Back (route)' is available:
    See Special function in logging mode: 'Bring me Back (route)'.
  • Logging status indicated by [L] (logging), [P] (paused) in the upper left corner
  • New Shortcut [SHIFT]+[A|S]: (S)tart logging
  • New Shortcut [SHIFT]+[Q|W]: (Q)uit logging
  • New Shortcut [SHIFT]+[O|P]: Toggle (P)ause
  • New Function: Clear all paths data/reset GPSLogger (key shortcut [SHIFT]+[Y|X|Z])
  • Changes between Imperial and Metric units will automatically update unit dependent option values ('Distance signal', 'When Waypoint is reached' & 'Distance to next Waypoint')
  • New symbol for 'location to reach' in the Path-View
  • Reorganized main menu structure
  • Additional menu entries (e.g. zoom in/out) for Storm Users (can be used instead of key shortcuts)
  • All lines will rendered with anti-aliasing-effect

What's fixed?

  • Checking GPS-Location for '0' as latitude or longitude values
  • Import of large (0.5 MiB+) KML & GPX files

2009/07/25 - GPSLogger release of 1.0

Over the past several months, I have considered significant user feedback as I added all of the essential features in order to make GPSLogger a usefull BlackBerry® offline GPS application. It is with these latest enhancements to the user interface for the Options that I proudly release GPSLogger version 1.0 to the BlackBerry® community. Hopefully, the reviewers and the community at large will agree.

What's new?

  • Options reorganized - on BlackBerry® devices it's quite common to separate the application options into various screens - this makes the options way more organized and easiert to understand.
  • Distance Signal - new 'Special Options' to specify 'Vibrate Time' and 'Audio Volume'
  • The specified 'Path directory' will be checked at each startup (if writable) - if not the Options dialog will be opened
  • New General Option: 'Start in NightMode'
  • New General Option: 'Confirm deletion of Paths and Points'
  • New General Option: 'Allow start without GPS-Signal'
  • New dialog to enter locations in the Degree, Minutes (decimal) format (like: 47° 56.112 N)
  • Export (KML, GPX and CVS) of single Locations (from the Location Manager) - Key shortcut: [Z|X]
  • GPX-Import will support files that contain location information in <rtept> elements

What's fixed?

  • Input fields for new location coordinates only accept numeric values
  • When in logging mode: a loaded location (via the LocationManager) will not be overwritten by the start location of your current path
  • Fixed rounding problem for lon & lat values [if ending with 00 milli seconds]

2009/06/17 - GPSLogger update to 0.6.4.1 (HOTFIX)

What's new?

  • Renamed Option 'Use absolute elevation values' in 'Use inverted elevation values' (and adjusted the internal implementation)

What's fixed?

  • Logging will record altitude again

2009/06/16 - GPSLogger update to 0.6.4

What's new?

  • Option 'Use absolute elevation values': for some reason some devices (like Storm and Bold) seams to return "inverted" altitude value. Even if it's possible in WGS84 to have a negative altitude there are sample logs of users showing negative elevation values > ~250m - this is for sure not correct.
    The data in the $GPGGA NMEA sentence is also negative - so there is no easy way to fix this inside GPSLogger [since all available data sources shows the same (false) value]. So if your BlackBerry® device is creating negative elevation values only, then please be so kind and enable the 'Use absolute Elevation values' checkbox in the options. When you toggle this option you have to reload current visible data in GPSLogger.
    My apologize that this was not discovered earlier - but I am living in a very flat area where min and max elevation have only a difference of 20m
  • Location Manager will always show distance to current location in the location list (requires a current location gps signal)
  • Export format: CSV (incl. double quotes as value encloser)
  • Export option: Only marked locations (= with name) will be included in the export (default OFF)
  • Predefined location marking names - when you have a file called names.txt in your path directory, then GPSLogger will use the content of this file when mark a location on your path (while recording). The names.txt should countain one predefined location name per line. Your names.txt file should look like this (and can be created e.g. with BBFileScout):
     your predefined name 001
     your predefined name 002
     ...
     your predefined name xxx
    This will make GPSLogger quite usefull for wildlife tracking/recording, since this allows you quickly to pick the animal/plant you just have spotted at the current location.

What's fixed?

  • KML Export: Marking of Max Speed when at the same location then with Max/Min Elevation
  • Added [BACKSPACE] as key shortcut for deleting a path or location in the corresponding manager screens

2009/06/12 - GPSLogger update to 0.6.3

What's new?

  • If a location was loaded it will be always shown in the 'Path View'
  • New dialog to enter locations in the Degree, Minutes, Seconds (Milliseconds) format
  • Alignment of speed & elevation views based on relative (and not on absolute) time - this allows you to compare different recorded paths even if they are recorded at a different date.
  • Website: Documentation started [read more]
  • Website: New Sceenshots of GPSLogger in action [click here]

What's fixed?

  • When using large fonts the path & location details could not be fully read - now you can scroll up/down
  • Zoom works again when you are actually logging (or have loaded a path into the background) [was broken in 0.6.2]
  • After deleting the last location or path the list will now be empty (refreshing issues solved)
  • Multiple 'Background Path' should be rendered in different shades of grey

2009/06/09 - GPSLogger update to 0.6.2

What's new?

  • "Distance Alerts/Signal" - Peep & vibrate after a user specified distance (in Meter or Feet) was traveled (specially useful for runners & biker)
    E.g. specify (in the options) a distance of 1000m, then GPSLogger will give you a audio signal & your BlackBerry® Device will vibrate every km. So you get informed, that you have completed the user specified distance. Of course the signal comes again after an additional km. So you have the signal at 1km, 2km, 3km... When you want the signal every mile, then please enter 5280 ft.
  • In the KML export the "Max Elevation", "Min Elevation" and "Max Speed" Locations will be marked with a special symbol and an additional Text
  • You can now load a Path into the background and can follow this background path without the requirement to start logging.
  • New Option: Specify the "distance signal" (in Meter or Feet depending on your Units Setting) - Enter a '0' to disable this feature.

What's fixed?

  • Export for of ultra long Path (39500+ Locations) supported (even if I do not recommend to log longer then 1 day in a single GPSLogger session)
    Please note, that ultra long paths can't be send via eMail since it simply blows the device RAM! (A log with 39500+ Locations will generate a KML or GPX file of 18+ MB!)

2009/06/05 - GPSLogger update to 0.6.1

What's new?

  • We have a new domain! 'www.emacberry.com'
    That's also the reason, that you will get an Information when updating to the new Version [a module with the same name (GPSLogger) exist] - simply continue by pressing "OK".
  • Progress bar when exporting paths

What's fixed?

  • Path, Elevation & Speed Views will show always all named Locations
  • KML-Import fixed (negative values)
  • Possible HangUp fix when exporting long paths

2009/05/29 - GPSLogger update to 0.6

What's new?

  • Specify your custom path names when start logging (can be enabled by 'Specify own Path names' in the options)
  • Editing path names (via Path Manager)
    There is a single issue with editing Path names: Renaming an Path created by any previous GPSLogger version (before 0.6) will cause in a duplication of the Path - one with the old name - one with the new name - simply delete the path with the old name afterwards - there is no way around that - please excuse this inconvenience. Once the file is renamed for the first time, the overwriting when changing the name again will work smooth like silk.
  • Create a new location (via Location Manager) - specify name, lat & lon value [the first step into a GeoCache app]
  • Edit name of existing locations (via Location Manager)
  • Direction View for OS4.2.1+ will show heading to 'N' (beside the direction to go)
  • Direction View will show "estimated time of arrival" (depends from the current speed)
  • Location details dialog will show the distance to your current location
  • Import of KML Path (additional to GPX import)
  • Import of a KML/GPX location [unzip your Google KMZ files (e.g. with BBFileScout) to a KML]
  • New Shortcut [SHIFT]+[M]: Open Path Manager
  • New Shortcut [SHIFT]+[L]: Open Location Manager
  • New Icons in GoogleEarth (the KML-Export)
  • New Shortcuts in Path Manager:
    • [I|U]: (I)nformation/Details about path
    • [E|R]: (E)dit Path name
    • [Z|X]: E(x)port path
    • [M]: Export as e(M)ail
    • [DEL]: (DEL)ete path
    • [L]: (L)oad path
    • [A|S]: Load as (s)hadow path
  • New Shortcuts in Location Manager:
    • [I|U]: (I)nformation/Details about location
    • [E|R]: (E)dit location name
    • [B|N]: (N)ew location
    • [DEL]: (DEL)ete location
    • [L]: (L)oad Location

What's fixed?

  • no bugs where reported in the last days...

2009/05/23 - GPSLogger update to 0.5.6

(don't get confused - 0.5.5 was never released)

What's new?

  • Timing View: Display elapsed time, current speed and ? speed in a large font (e.g. for runners and cyclists)
  • Path details popup will show ? speed
  • Details popup for location (in location loading screen)

    Load a previously stored Location (Point) and let you guide to that direction ("Guide Me Home" function). This can become quite useful when you have to locate your car at a big parking lot - or when you are in the wilderness and have lost the orientation. Please Note: This is not a any kind of street navigation function! - it's just gives you a direction & distance.
  • Key short cut [D|F] to toggle display forward
  • Key short cut [SHIFT]+[D|F] to toggle display backwards
  • Key short cut [L] to toggle night mode

What's fixed?

  • KML-Export

2009/05/17 - GPSLogger update to 0.5.3
