Just set parameter GPS.CSV Tracker:yes in preferences file.

Waze will log all drives to CSV file in gps folder (located in wazs folder).

For example: GPS_track_100313__11_27.csv

You can push all you want, but this is hardly core functionality for a commuting navigation app. I bet there is a vote for it over on the uservoice, but I don't have the link to it any more and I'm not sure Waze even looks there any longer.

Someone has written a script (in Perl or Python?) and posted the source to this forum before. To make it easier for others, we need someone to put a web front-end on it.

Wish some script wizard would write a script that would access the drives database and export all drives between any two dates to a .csv formatted file, sorted by date.

I have manually gone through a whole year using 'select', copy, paste to text file in edit++, wrote a macro to go through and combine the two data lines per drive into a single line.
Then copied all the stuff from the text file, pasted it to an excel spread sheet, cleaned it up and converted the km to miles, sorted by date.

From the looks of the code, it should be possible to write a script that would grab the drives data and export it.

I am just interested in date/time/milage for each drive. Some users may want the actual gps points. Either should be possible.

Many many months ago, I asked support and they said 'it is in the works'. Somehow I suspect that they have better things to do.

Any volunteers?

Where is the preferences file located?
How does one access it to modify it?

This may seem obvious and trivial to you, but it is neither obvious nor trivial to some of us.

Need: export of GPS Data for dummies

Postby DerWeisseRiese » Wed Feb 20, 2013 11:46 am

Hi,

I use Waze to document my routes and need the export functionality either from waze itself or via the webinterface (here).
maybe as direct export to google maps. (yes I know about the admin way)

Can we push that request?

Nope it isn't. I suggest you run another app in parallel with Waze. When I was using Nokia phones (Symbian/S60) I used Sports-Tracker.com . That allows gpx exporting.

Should be a GUI for that. By the way what program/map can display that format and how?

thanks
