That's a good point to use gpx as this is the only standard format and
more and more applications can use it...

From my own experience, 30s is usually not enough. It would be great to
be able to change it manually.
When I synchronize my pictures and my gps track, I use a 2 minutes
delay, which is enough for me (there is no new point in gpx file when I
stop to take pictures :) ).
Please, also note that times in GPX are GMT, so we also need an offset,
depending on the timezone.
Congratulations for this work !
