Do any of these loggers (phone- or hardware-based) continuously log locations, like a car's GPS that constantly updates, or do they just do it when you press a button? I do car-to-car shots at some cruise events, and there's no time to press a button between shots. Pretty much just constantly shooting. Being able to post a map with the location each shot was taken would be amazing!

I've used both an actual device and an app on my phone.  They both will regularly record your position every X seconds depending on how much battery you want it to use.  I think for pictures taken between points it interpolates the point, but I'm not sure.  My pictures seemed to match accurately but I wasn't comparing them closely.

My physical device stopped working while i was on vacation so i switched to using an app.  I was hesitant at first because i was worried about running down the battery on the phone.  Luckily, everything was fine and I didn't notice significantly shorter battery life.
