GPS tracking in Background - Edge Hack (Not Devel, Stable, RC)
As I wrote, I already enabled this setting.
One thing I didn't mention is that I don't have a SIM card in yet, my Android phone is still my main phone until I migrate everything to the OPO. I didn't have any Internet access. I since read that GPS localization seems to be more problematic without a SIM card.
Check the new version, uploaded today, no more long list the screen is refreshed after each datapoint.
I've also add a sum-up calculation at the end :
GPX file Created : 1566872659557.gpx Length 2D: 0.004km Length 3D: 0.016km Moving time: 00:00:11 Stopped time: 00:14:34 Max speed: None Avg speed: 0m/s = 1km/h Total uphill: 3.3m Total downhill: 4.3m
That sounds great, I'm back home and with still a week vacation left, I'm hoping to test this further. Thanks!
I wonder, can we install Git on UT? It would make updating your script easier. I think I'll try and see.
A word of warning: if you forget to activate the terminal's "prevent app suspension" button, once the script is launched, there is no stopping it!!! The CTRL+C button at the bottom will not stop the script.
I meet the bug, doesn't appear on Edge but on Devel Yes.
I'll look at it.
Sorry, I guess I should have mentioned I'm on 16.04/rc.
BTW I tried to install git on UT, the package isn't available. I guess I could always git pull from my PC then copy to the phone, but I'm not seeing the gps-utouch-tracker folder from the PC, only the folders Documents, Music, Images and Videos...
From the phone terminal,
wget https://framagit.org/ernesst/gps-utouch-tracker/-/archive/master/gps-utouch-tracker-master.zip && unzip gps-utouch-tracker-master.zip
@ernest thanks, I guess keeping the original folder name (with -master) will make updating easier in the future.
All, i'm looking for good soul to test the last version, please contact me on Telegram : @Ernes_t
I've updated the script to : Consume less battery, import automatically the run to Activity Tracker when finished, upload the position in real-time to Phonetrack (Nextcloud) and distributed into a click.
I found recently thanks to iperspace, apparmor hack, the script should be able to run under all version.

Excellent ! Thank you very much @doniks
Latest version has been uploaded to openstore.
Please read prior use : https://github.com/ernesst/Utrack/blob/master/README.md
I think this app is very useful.
However, I can’t make it work.
I use an Aquaris E4.5 with ubuntu 16.04 (OTA11).
I used the previous script and now the recent updated script with no luck.
I have no issues with the installation, but when I launch the script, it gets stuck with “Waiting for satellites ...”.
When I close the app (Ctrl+C), it creates an empty gpx file.
The rest of apps (ActivityTracker, OSMScout) fetch the data and show my position, so I am sure that GPS is working properly.
What could be the cause?
Thank you for your suggestions.
i noticed that the script is neither working with OP3 device. I had to modify it to make it works.
Are you on telegram, if so please contact me @ern_st
