Recording Tracks with your Logger

Help > Using TrackShare > Recording Tracks with your Logger

Every GPS logger is different, and some may contain additional features not discussed in these help pages. However, the basic procedure of recording a track is always much the same:

  1. Charge the unit
    Many modern loggers have batteries that can last for tens of hours between charges, though we always recommend you head out with a fully charged battery where possible.
  2. Switch it on to Log wait until it starting receiving GPS signal (usually a couple of minutes if this is your first use, often only a few seconds for subsequent uses).
    Usually indicated by a flashing LED on the device. Check your user manual to make sure.
  3. Start walking/riding/driving/moving
  4. Once you have finished tracking, turn the unit off go back to your PC and connect the device using a USB cable. Note: some units require the device to be switched on for TrackShare to communicate with it.
