I've recently bought a GoPro camera to make videos of my rides. But most of my usual routes through twisties include boring towns and indeed, to get to interesting places I usually take the highway. I've hated the fact that I need to get off my motorbike to turn on the camera on and off to save power while riding through uninteresting bits.

So I've written an Android app that enables handsfree control of the camera. The idea is to set up in advance the points at which you wish to start and stop recordings, put the device in your pocket and forget about it. The device then uses GPS to monitor your position and turns the camera on/off at these points.

The GoPro GPS app is available in the Google Play store and it's free https://play.google.com/store/apps/...lin.goprogps. Anyone interested is invited to check it out. And comments are, of course, welcome.

Some riders around here count on their GoPro cameras to document any accidents that they might be involved in. They'll record the whole ride, then when nothing happens they'll delete it. You can't plan in advance where something like that will happen.
