tower

find location (cell or GPS), view online maps, store waypoints and tracks

  • no Google Services dependencies, only necessary permissions (fine and coarse location, internet, foreground service)

  • connects to several online map providers

  • acceptable performance on slow GPRS-EDGE networks; may find coarse location by phone cell without GPS; may create waypoints with GPS without phone and internet connections

  • displays and saves cell info ( MCC, MNC, LAC, CID )

  • all waypoints are stored on a memory card and may be organized in any number of files (by regions etc.)

  • waypoint lists may be exported or imported in the GPX format, compatible with many navigators and software

  • finds location only by explicit user's command, so is very mild on the battery

  • capable of writing tracks (by means of a foreground service) and exporting them in the GPX format

  • tracks from other devices (GPX files) may be viewed along with your data

  • NOT implemented: map offline caching, routing, editing tracks, photo and video attachments, serving cold beer :)

  • for pure open distributions, that lack API keys and access to some services, there are options to enter user's own keys
