Well, inevitably, school and work took up a lot of time the last few months, and my zaurus has been collecting dust... much to my dismay.

Well, the summer's here, and I have a lot of free time on my hands, and a girlfriend who absolutely loves to go for hikes (as do I, but I was too lazy to go out on my own). There's so much good hiking here in central Pennsylvania that I never knew about, and it's great to spend a day walking along the ridge of a mountaintop and stop and look at the incredible views.

Anyhoo, before I get too far off tangent: I need to know the latest in the state of GPS software under pdaXrom. I've searched a bit, but I can't seem to find more than some older info and lots of promise of running TomTom stuff under Angstrom. I don't really have the time to mess with Angstrom right now, but I can't wait to see how it progresses. I have a really old build of gpsdrive (from march 2005) that works, but is really old. I tried searching for new builds, but it seems like many of the feeds I've been using are old or non-working. Anyone know where I can grab the latest release?

Also, is there any new things I should know about regarding GPS under pdaXrom? I tried searching the forums, but I didn't turn up much. Thanks for all your help!

gpsdrive works with pdaxii3 & outputs voice info if you have flite installed & an NMEA-based GPS receiver. I used it in the car with a bluetooth CF card & bluetooth-based navman pocket gps receiver over the half term hols. Sometimes the navman wouldn't pick up satellites, other times I drove for a couple of hundred km & it tracked perfectly.

I found it very useful just to see where I was on the journey, but my best gps receiver by far is still my spouse smile.gif

All you had to do was search this forum for GPS. Here is my experience with GPS in Pdaxii13.
