I've not had good luck with the Google GNSSLogger app on a Nexus 5X 
(which is a supported device). Lots of crashes, very little logged 
data. I think the Nexus 9 tablet was the optimal device--something 
about leaving the GPS chipset powered up, so carrier phase data 
didn't have lots of cycle slips?

Won't rtklib do it? (I recently received a china special NEO-7N 
module from ebay, but I've yet to run the raw data through rtklib. 
It's on my todo list. The unit seems to support the undocumented raw 
output formats and logging to flash, so I'm pretty sure it's a real 
ublox device.)
