Default [Q] How to use NFC tag to start/stop recording My Tracks?

I have several NFC tags lying around, and I would like to put one in my car, so that when I put my phone close to it it will start recording GPS coordinates with Google My Tracks app. How do I achieve that?

Download the app "trigger" from the playstore, you can setup everything from there

There is a Tasker/Locale Plug-in that will allow you use Tasker to start/stop MyTracks. Then you just need an NFC App that can trigger Tasker Tasks. Llama can do that as can the previously mentioned Trigger and several other NFC apps on the play store.
