Just saw it now, I hope fna found his solutions. If not try this,

https://github.com/nickfox/GpsTracker
https://github.com/rcgroot/open-gpstracker

Building something like this requires experiences in Java programming. Try some framework, for example Iconic or Phonegap if you have experience with web programming, or Kiivy for Python, or Xaramin for C#. Even Java has few robust frameworks. Try App Dev Wiki for more options. Most of these frameworks support GPS tracking api.
