Labs option request: GPS Altitude Trigger

[ New ]

Hi!
Would love to see a GPS altitude triggered start and stop capture similar to the GPS speed trigger :-)

Interesting. Currently speed is triggered only for thresholds above a number, is altitude the same? Would you want to trigger above and below. What is the application you are thinking of?

Immediate application is capturing skydiving exits using a gopro mounted externally on the airplane, but i forsee other possible applications as weather-ballooning, drone/model airplanes, skiing, biking etc.
Similar to speed: Trigger above a start altitude and stop recording when under a stop altitude.

Or if start altitude setting is less than stop altitude: trigger when descending below start altitude and stop when ascending above stop altitude. Can be used to film landings etc.
