Yes if the GPX location are tracked then you can export it in the Ulogger.

A great application to follow / to spy your wife …or what else… :slight_smile:

Ulogger has been updated to version 0.5

μlogger seems excellent to me, great job!

I’m new to geolocation apps, could you comment on my thoughts, please?
I’ve read here that GPS signal can be weak because of trees, and I’m currently living in wooden locality, so I guess I need so-called A-GPS (GPS assisted by Wi-Fi and cellular signal). Does μlogger provide A-GPS, if my device is capable of receiving this signal? If not, are you planning to implement this feature?

Thank you in advance for your reply.

Hey kaatun,

it would be best to ask your question at the responsible project itself (https://github.com/bfabiszewski/ulogger-android) as they can provide you a guaranteed answer. However I believe this yunohost project is no longer maintained - which is a shame.

I will try to answer your question anyway:
Whether your device is supporting and using A-GPS should not matter for the logging appliance. If you are using a mobile device using Android with Google Services the GPS service is handled by Google Services. If you are using Android without Google Services the OS provider has to provide you the GPS features. Similar features are provided by Apple for their devices.
With this architecture your system can fully utilize the capabilities of your devices hardware (e.g. using GPS, GLONASS, Galileo simultaneously, A-GPS) and combine this data to a highly optimized “GPS” location. This data is transferred to the ulogger online service.

If ulogger provides its own GPS “location” implementation (not so easy to implement in a good way … but is HAS the benefit of being independent of the OS services) it is very likely that they are supporting A-GPS as this usually works via the mobile network. Their homepage states they support “network based location” as well.
