NAME¶gpxlogger - Tool to connect to gpsd and generate a GPX file
gpxlogger [-D debug-level] [-d] [-e export-method] [-f filename] [-l] [-m minmove] [-h] [-V] [-i track timeout] [server [:port [:device]]]
DESCRIPTION¶This program collects fixes from gpsd and logs them to standard output in GPX, an XML profile for track logging.
The output may be composed of multiple tracks. A new track is created if there's no fix written for an interval specified by the -i and defaulting to 5 seconds.
gpxlogger can use any of the export methods that gpsd supports. For a list of these methods, use the -l. To force the method, give the -e one of the colon-terminated method names from the -l table.
OPTIONS¶The -h option causes gpxlogger to emit a summary of its options and then exit.
The -V option causes gpxlogger to dump the package version and exit.
The -D option sets a debug level; it is primarily for use by GPSD developers. It enables various progress messages to standard error.
The -d option tells gpxlogger to run as a daemon in background. It requires the -f option, which directs output to a specified logfile.
The -m option sets a minimum move distance in meters (it may include a fractional decimal part). Motions shorter than this will not be logged.
The -r option tells gpxlogger to retry when GPSd loses the fix. Without -r, gpxlogger would quit in this case.
If D-Bus support is available on the host, GPSD is configured to use it, and -e dbus is specified, this program listens to DBUS broadcasts from gpsd via org.gpsd.fix.
With -e sockets, or if sockets is the method defaulted to, you may give a server-port-device specification as arguments.
The sockets default is to all devices on the localhost, using the default GPSD port 2947. An optional argument to any client may specify a server to get data from. A colon-separated suffix is taken as a port number. If there is a second colon-separated suffix, that is taken as a specific device name to be watched. However, if the server specification contains square brackets, the part inside them is taken as an IPv6 address and port/device suffixes are only parsed after the trailing bracket. Possible cases look like this:
