Default [APP][Plugin] CGPS v1.0

GPS Application Plugin for Titanium



Logs your GPS Coordinates at an interval of 5 minutes

How does it work?
After running the application, it will turn ON your phone's GPS and log your current coordinates in a csv file. If it is able to get a valid coordinate, it will turn your GPS OFF and then wait for 5 minutes before turning it ON again.

First Panel:
- tapping on the panel will turn on the GPS
- first text line shows the status of CGPS (on/off)
- second text line shows the number of satellites and the status of your phone's GPS
- third line shows your Latitude and Longitude
- right soft key's function is to close/exit CPGS

Second Panel:
- will allow you to send an sms to one of your contacts with your last logged GPS coordinate and also a link to open Google Maps (installation is required on the receiving phone) and point your location.

Comments:
- tested on HTC Diamond 6.5 rom
- i don't have any icon for my panel (left image) maybe someone could share one for this plugin

A SMALL DONATION WOULD HELP A LOT

Hi,

on installing CGPS i always get an error "installation not successful". What happend? Ok, it works, i create a folder manually, than restart the install.

Another question: is it possible to switch from lon/lat to the QTH-Locator for the amateur radio operators?

CU, Locke

Ok, you knew it was coming...a bug list. None of which are a big deal, mostly irritating things.

Battery drains, but honestly, it's to be expected.
While it's running, ie connected to gps (doin' it's thing), it messes with titanium. The transparent bar on the top will go to a non transparent bar (no biggie). Hitting the end key won't go back to cClock until you select another panel, but then it works until you check the CGPS panel (no biggie). This one is strange, when exiting out of a convo via sms, it'll go the home screen, but the bottom bar for sms stays, hitting end fixes it (more irritating than anything). Once you hit 'close' on the CGPS panel, everything goes back to normal (all bugs disappear).

I would like to say that even with these very minor bugs, this is a very awesome panel. Thank you so very much!

- thank you for sharing.

- do you mean in degrees? may i ask for a sample syntax please?

Battery drains, but honestly, it's to be expected.
- i've set it to close the GPS every 5 minutes, maybe a longer interval would lessen the battery drain, but then the gap between 2 succeeding points would be much farther apart

While it's running, ie connected to gps (doin' it's thing), it messes with titanium. The transparent bar on the top will go to a non transparent bar (no biggie).
- hmm, haven't experienced this on my Diamond. May i ask what's your device's resolution please?

Hitting the end key won't go back to cClock until you select another panel, but then it works until you check the CGPS panel (no biggie).
- while CGPS is running? i just tested it and you are correct. Maybe because the CGPS.exe is in the foreground (but invisible) that's why when you press the END key, titanium doesn't receive the end message. i'll work this out later

This one is strange, when exiting out of a convo via sms, it'll go the home screen, but the bottom bar for sms stays, hitting end fixes it (more irritating than anything). Once you hit 'close' on the CGPS panel, everything goes back to normal (all bugs disappear).
- i don't get this. Can you please explain further? or post a SS?

- thank you for the comment.
