I'm looking for a way to quickly and safely drop GPS waypoints while driving, with my phone attached to the car's dashboard.
I say "safely" because all the GPS logger apps I've tried so far require me to navigate a complex user interface with way too many extraneous functions, and/or call up a form with various input fields for each waypoint, which I can't mess around with while driving. Literally all I need to be able to do is:
- Reach over and tap a (decently large!) button on the screen to record my current longitude/latitude (preferably without having to tap a second time to confirm), and...
- At the end of the drive, export the list of recorded waypoints to a .csv or similar.
Preferably the data should be stored locally on my phone, because for this project I might occasionally be on remote roads without a reliable data connection. Also note that I'm not looking to record my location continuously as I drive (although something like that could work if I can use quickly pausing/unpausing the log as a substitute for recording discrete waypoints).
(I managed to build essentially what I've described using AppSheet, but it ultimately didn't work because the recorded coordinates weren't precise — I believe AppSheet only updates your location once per minute, and I need higher resolution than that. Since the functionality I need is so simple, though, I'm happy to take suggestions for services similar to AppSheet that would allow me to build it myself.)
