About GPS Replay

GPS Replay is a simple tool that can record both Global Positioning System (GPS) and Network (WiFi and Cell Tower) location sources to log files in a simple human-readable comma-separated data format (CSV).

The app then allows you to replay these log files in such a way that your phone and other apps running on it are fooled into thinking you are retracing your steps when you could be sitting somewhere else, perhaps without any GPS signal available.

Because the log files are in a simple CSV format, you can edit them with any text editor or spreadsheet program to modify the GPS tracks. You are also able to share your tracks with friends via email or any other method of file-sharing, so that if you have recorded a really interesting or useful track they can use GPS virtually retrace your steps on their device.

Recording GPS:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Any device with GPS signal can record GPS data. GPS (or other) location needs to be enabled, and there needs to be sufficient GPS signal to attain a fix.
The GPS data is currently saved in a simple text format. Future versions of the app will include an option to save in a standard GPS track format that can be viewed or manipulated with 3rd Party Tools.

Replay GPS:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
To replay GPS you need to either:
1. Enable Developer Settings on your device, and then enable Mock Locations, or
2. Have a Rooted device and use a tool such as Root Explorer or APP2ROM to install GPS Replay as a System / Privileged App.
3. Replay often works better if you disable GPS on your device before starting playback, however some apps insist that device GPS is enabled.

Note that GPS Replay will prompt you by taking you to the Developer Settings in order to Enable Mock Locations if neither of the above has been done already.

Use Mock GPS Locations with Android User Profiles
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Some applications detect if the Mock Locations setting has been enabled and then not work as desired.
To get around such detection you can either root your device, or use a version of Android that has User Profiles enabled (stock Android for most Android tablets do). Then run the GPS Replay in the main "Owner" User Profile with Mock Location setting enabled and then switch to a different User Profile to run the target application.

What are users saying about GPS Replay

Works well, could look a bit better. I've recorded a couple of rides and it seems every now and the the mph go down to 3mph for about 60 seconds then goes back to the actual mph. I used Waze and Geo Tracker to watch the replay and both apps had the issue with the 3mph. Other than that, the app works.

Does the job, exactly what I needed.

N70%
by N####:

Well worth the money. Tried some other GPS mock location apps but they were either difficult to use, did not support moving along a track or route, or crashed.

H70%
by H####:

Some rough edges but support is very responsive.
