Today I tested out a little to see how was the development of the app and to give feedback about it.

After checking the results I think that the reason the tracks aren't coincident are:
The compass may have some errors. While holding the phone on the right hand, I tend to turn it right(silly hand). Also maybe the maps are not calibrated correctly. 

Any suggestions to improve the accuracy?

Also google earth used to open the gpx files well, now it just doesn't trace the path.

In the following image, blue was the recorded data and the red was the path that I walked.

I'm going to do a different test with the auto-correct feature on in max position to see if it actually improves the accuracy or will it just create a whole other mess.
Since you can always correct your position, when inside of cities is easy to locate yourself and re-define your position. :-)
It's good that the app is open source, the only problem for me is that I don't master the editing app part. =/

Hello there!
Before I became a tester I tried the app and I noticed that while holding the phone in the correct position, it started moving slightly to the right, so in order to go straight I had to turn my phone slightly to the left.
It is possible that it was interference in the phone's compass or maybe misreading of variables because it does happen with other apps.

If you check the export settings, it will only export the actual session. Means, if you close and reopen the app, the GPX file is closed and export is disabled until you enable it again. The export feature will be improved  in the next beta. The file format will be much better. To improve the functionality/behavior, we would be interested how you would like it. :) If your thoughts are too long for this small comment field, write us an email to smartnavi@2imba.de This counts for every beta test member! ;)

Thank you Jonathan! That could be really confusing. I changed the post. Instead of an 404 Google could give a much better advise.

If you want SmartNavi to provide location data for other apps, this is how you do it: Open the menu in the top right corner and click "Background Service" On the next screen you can start the background service. SmartNavi will then provide location data for other apps. So you can use step based navigation with your favorite apps. Beware that this service does not work with every other app.

I don't think that this is possible. Other apps should make an apropriate call in this case, but there is no standardized API for this. I just know about intents with tags like "geo". But they are for navigation, not for starting background services. But I have good news for you. SmartNavi will become Open Source very soon! Then you can try it on your own if you want. ;)

Beta Test of Version 1.5
In this new version the initial location getting should be improved. You can test how good SmartNavi gets your start position depending on current possibilities. (GPS, WIFI, UMTS, nothing)
Furthermore SmartNavi does not need 3 user permissions anymore, so they are removed in this version. :)

You can write your Feedback in the Beta Test Feedback Channel, or right here. Please tell us about your with the new initial positioning.
