I'm really looking to contribute to the community as I do a lot of driving for work and I'm looking to permanently install a headless wardriving rig in my car. While RPi builds seem to have the great range and accuracy, I've seen some difficulty on graceful shutdowns for when I power off my vehicle. I don't have an android phone but I'd be open to buying one just for this.

Could someone enlighten me on what they think would be the best build or phone in 2020 to contribute?

Ask your friends if they have spare phones in a drawer first. No joke, everyone seems to have at least one. If you have to buy one you can get ancient phones off eBay for $20 that come with all the radios you need. Check out Samsung phones starting from S5 and older.

If you're using a more elaborate setup with a portable computer the GPSd Forwarder app on F-Droid might help you save money on a GPS unit. Never tried using it, tell me how it goes.
