Folks - I apologize for the delay. The program works, I've been testing it out with WiFi location (I still need to buy a GPS dongle), but the Windows developer has been very ill for the last week which has set us back.
I expect it will be ready to beta in the next day or two.
Good News -- the beta is out! Sign up at the address in the first post.
For anyone who downloaded the beta, please redownload the latest version. The last one had some serious issues with COM ports and lat/lng in GPS mode.
I realize I'm late, but I'm in now. Trying to test this on an old laptop, and planning a carputer.
The WiFi location works fine at home, but only rarely out on the highway. I assume this is because of a lack of beacons.
I have a WWAN card for Internet access out on the road, but that doesn't seem to give location -- unless I'm missing something. Am I?
I also have a Magellan 3200 series GPS. I tried connecting it via USB, and tried each of the 4 selectable COM ports shown in Trapster setup, but Trapster couldn't get the GPS location through any. Any hints here?

Any more traction on this?
