- GPS track recording needs GPS distance/accuracy threshold settings~~~

Just purchased GPS track recording feature but very disappointed. It should have at least 2 settings to be usable:

1.GPS distance threshold: Minimum distance to travel before a new track point is recorded.
2.GPS accuracy threshold: Filters out any track points that are not accurate within this range.

Please please add these two settings. Thank you very much~~.

Please check out the new version 2.1 of Galileo Offline Maps app. "GPS Filtering" settings are available now due to your request:
* Accuracy Threshold
* Distance Threshold

Thank you for your suggestions regarding the GPS settings - "Distance threshold"/"Accuracy threshold' will be included in Settings list in upcoming version of Galileo Offline Maps app. We are always welcome unsolicited ideas such as yours.

Good suggestion! May I also suggest a submenu for the Track feature where I can choose to include the GPS accuracy as metadata for each data point in the track?

Background: I just bought this feature to code my own app for visualizing my bike trips. Currently using Runkeeper but it's useless for showing speed. I want the track on the map to be in a color according to my speed at that spot, like the Nike+ app has. The export track feature in G is great and including as much data as possible is good for me so I can choose what data to keep myself :)

Great, great app! Saved my ass so many times, esp when traveling and arriving at a new destination abroad :)
