As part of a larger project, a personal API and dashboard, I’ve been interested in tracking all of the driving I do. For a while I used OpenGPSTracker from my phone but it tended to be a bit of a pain since I would have to open it up and turn on tracking everytime I got in the car. I did use Trigger to automatically open it up when connected to Bluetooth but sometimes that would be slow. Ultimately, I want all of the tracking to occur without my intervention. The good news is I had an old Samsung Note 1 gathering dust so I determined it was a good time to put it to use.
