Asked by GTriderXC


I wonder if it would be a big problem to add a function that would track (record) our route and spit it out as a file in a format of .tcx .gpx or .fit? Why...
There are many great apps for Android, for example sport apps like Endomondo, Strava etc. that need for example a .gpx file which can be uploaded from a device to the Internet site. I think such tracking/recording function would be great not only for sporty people. Many people would love to record their routes. Garmin devices store such data in a special program which is extremely useful.
I'd love to be able to record my rides or runs as a file and then upload it to Endomondo or some other service.

I think that would be really easy, but...

I would have the most simple UI and things like generate a track wouldn't
be that :/

There is already an awesome app for that.

If you are following a route, the route would be that track (?).

Would those tracks useful to open source projects?

These are just a few throughts. I will think more in this.

A hug and thanks for your feedback!

Adding a route tracking and recording function that generates file formats like .tcx, .gpx, or .fit would be awesome! It would benefit sporty people, like runners and cyclists, but also anyone who loves exploring new places. Imagine tracking your hikes, bike rides, road trips, and even ice hockey sessions, and easily uploading them to platforms like Endomondo. It's a feature that Garmin devices are known for, and having it in an app or device would make it super convenient for users to record and share their routes. So, it's definitely worth considering!

Can you help with this problem?
