[NYCkayaker] gps tracker

Hi Peter,

I've been using My Tracks, an app that Google acquired some time back, on my HTC phone. It's simple but effective. The altitude readings are rubbish, but that doesn't matter if you're on the water. It's very easy to upload your routes to Google Maps and Drive.

Someone recently recommended Trimble Outdoors, which I've installed but not yet used much.

My biggest problem in using tracking is my phone's battery life. With GPS on I only get about 4 hours of juice. Maybe your phone will last longer.
