    I'm looking for a GPS app that tracks my movements but does not use the internet to update my movements on a map. I'm looking for something that just maps the movements by placing dots on a blank screen that I can view while I am moving. When I am done logging, it should be able to upload the logging file to my pc so I can load into Google Earth.

    I want this type of app so it uses very little battery and does not hit the internet. I use to have a Blackberry Storm and they have an app called GPSlogger that did this and it worked great.

    I have not been able to find any app that does this in the Android market.

    Anyone know of something similar?

    The GPS receiver is going to really kill your battery. Attempted data use won't even compare. You'll want the device wired for power.

    It's a Google "20%" project. Just turn off the internet while using, if you want. It will still take GPS positions, and you can upload to Google Maps & Docs directly, or download in other formats.

    The attachment is from the app from my Storm that shows the GPS tracking without using the Internet. It puts a dot every 20 seconds (user setting). Like in this case, it's helpful when you are doing a loop hike to gauge how much further you need to go. When you are done you can upload the GPS coordinates file to your PC.

    I have yet to find any app that is similar to this. The GPSlogger app in the Android market is not the same app or developer.

    Google's MyTracks does exactly what you want....I've used it to track offshore fishing trips.

    I'd forgotten about MyTracks. Excellent choice.

    MyTracks sounds promising. I used GPSLogger on my BlackBerry as well for tracking hiking and biking trips. It was nice since you didn't have to have maps displayed, but still collect trip info.
