GPS data provides mobile phone tracking information that can increase the enjoyment of one’s mobile GPS activity and makes the route traveled more interesting. “DataTap enables people to view their activity by capturing their location, routes or travels as they go from a start to finish,” said Young Park, VP of Business Development and Sales. “Activities that use continuous GPS data-logging are dynamic activities, such as driving, cycling, running, hiking and walking. DataTap provides the user the capability for mobile tracking and capture of their dynamic activity on their iPhone, and analyze or view it on their Mac or PC, or share it with friends,” he continued.

“DataTap also enables the user to capture cell phone tracking information, such as discrete location GPS data and add notes, edit or delete the entry. This location data is saved in a .CSV file (that is similar to an Excel file format),” mentioned Young. “Uses for discrete location GPS data-logging include golfing, landmarks, geo-caching, fishing spots, restaurant or store locations, and agriculture or wilderness locations,” he added.
