Hi,

I was looking for a GPS application for my Z. As I earlier annonced, I've found gpsd to connect to my bluetooth GPS.

gpsdrive 2.10pre2 a really old version. I've found a lot of new development in the CVS, but I couldn't compile it.
I've modified this old version for my own usage. Probably you could use it, too.

Preconditions:
I would like to use gpsdrive in car, where the Zaurus is opened and in portrate mode.
I have a one button mouse (pen or finger), and four buttons: Enter, Esc, Up and Down.
It has to optimised to the 480*640 pixels. (Minus the status bar!)

Changes:
1. Switching to "Pos. mode" by mouse click. "Enter" in "Pos. mode" means selection. (New target) "Esc" in "Pos. mode" switches it off.

2. Up and Down are zoom in/out but at the limits (1 or 16) it tries to change the map, too.

3. The most important informations (for me) are on map view:
- speed, distance to target or next way point and the name of the waypoint.

I hope, I've packed everithing in ipk for installation.

Good luck,

Tamás

Hi,

I`ve extended the above mentioned gpsdrive version with the route download module from maemomapper. (The .ipk includes only the gpsdrive binary itself.)

It can connect to the site http://www.gnuite.com/cgi-bin/gpx.cgi.
The downloaded route is displayed on the map.
The next action on the route is written above the map, and annonced if flite is installed.

The downloading dialog pops up if you choose "Get route" menu button.

It depends from libcurl package from pdaXrom feed. (flite is recommended.)

There are some problems with, but it can be used already. e.g. the automatic reloading of the route is not implemented. (I don`t have GPRS flat rate.)

Try it,

Tamas

Hey, I also use gps with my zaurus, as soon as I get my abicom card in I will test it out for you. You should keep up the great work. This program has needed some updating.

Sorry, but the format of the route description was changed by the gnuite.com. Gpsdrive can not use the routes now. I try to follow it in september.
