*Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Developing apps that require location services can be a challenge when the data you receive in the simulator is so much different than what a device receives in the real world. Are your location settings battery friendly enough to solve the problem you are working on or could you do with a little less accuracy?
GPX Builder allows you to adjust the settings of the location services to match your project, then record real location data as you create your own test routes for your simulator. You can name each route and email the GPX data back to your development team.
You can export your location data as a GPX file or in GeoJSON format. Points are recorded at a rate of one per second to match the playback speed of the iOS Simulator and give more realistic results when simulating location data. You can still record raw data only by choosing that option in the settings.
