Simple app that lets you see what locations have been cached on your android device.
You can take a look at them in a list (text) and on map.

Root is required to read and delete the location cache!

Block Cache will change permissions on the file so the LocationProvider can't write the files back to disk.

Changelog
v0.2
- blocking (chattr)
- delete files
v0.3
- blocking for all devices with busybox installed
- fix for "no data"
v0.4
- gpx export
- fix force close on map
v0.5
- fix for another FC
v0.6
- maps shows accuracy
- clean ups and bugfixes

FAQ
Can I block the cache without root?
Yes, disable "Use wireless networks" under "Location & Security settings"
But you have to live with a slower location lock on maps.

Showing Map does not work (Force close)?
You should update your ROM/GApps
Your device has a buggy Google Maps Library installed

I see this same smile on google's face since they can spy on anyone...not just their spouses.

No Data until 9th of March only
App is working fine, and shows correct information, but only until 9th of March, no data logged afterwards (which i like).

Is this based on the fact that using Network for Location is disabled? I am sure it is.

What about GPS data? Where could this be stored?

BTW, blocking the kernel in Droidwall should help a bit, as it tries to send data to Google Analytics!


Cheers

Internet is only used for the map tiles

If you have disabled "use wireless networks" under Location no data should be cached.

There is no cache for gps locks.

Thank you for this app. Saves me the trouble messing around with python scripts.
