Long time no post!

I am looking to go on a long road trip in Europe and would like to try a bit of time lapse photography. I just want to use a phone on the dash for it, but instead of having pictures taken every few seconds, I want it to be distance based to make for a smoother video. The only app I can find that does that is Triggertrap and it doesn't do it for the phone camera, but only as a remote control for other cameras. Anyone knows of other apps capable of doing this for the phone camera? Thanks.

Not right off hand, but do you need Android or iOS?

 Well, that would've been an obvious piece of information for me to post  Android.

It seems like you could cobble something together using Tasker and VideoReg

Here's an example of using it for general road recording:

Another for setting up a location tracker:

VideoReg on its own could work if you drop the framerate low and use the GPS subtitle stream to later edit it.

Thanks. Looks like a bit of an effort, so I'll dive into it for the next trip.
