I finally rewrote my console-based GPS mapping program "GPSCon". Users may now use command-line switches. Furthermore, referencing maps automatically works better and I daresay that the program is now actually usable by other people than me. GPSCon is downloadable from its project page.

Quick introduction for users who have used GPSCon before (you should also take a closer look at the README):

  • Create a reference file that contains POI (points of interest) data such as your favourite geocaching locations
  • Start GPScon like this: ./gpscon -d /dev/cuaa0 -l gpscon.log -r poi_data.txt -s
  • The -s tells GPSCon not to use auto-referencing, which might be better in some cases

Have fun with GPSCon and drop me a line if you like it.
