I'm also curious if the gps program is open source or not. linux has no good gps programs, it'd be nice if something like that could be modified by the community to be good.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. Turns out that the macvision's solid hardware isn't limited by it's early software after all.
With the unit running linux, it's actually relatively easy to modify:
Now, whether the internal GPS app can run alongside more feature rich A/V functions is yet to be tested.

I'm currently trying to get skyeye working (www.skyeye.org) to emulate the filesystem on my x86_64 PC. That will hopefully help with quicker testing. Right now I can't even easily LDD the files, since they're ARM binaries.
My goal is to first replace the limited MP3 player. Right now it's not terribly useful, with no playlists or file sorting...
I purchased one of these recently. It does use a Linux based operating system. I do not know how to mod this device. Right now it seems like a huge waste of money for me. The GPS software is crap. I have not used the other options available with this device. I am sure it is capable of doing everything I would want it to...I just do not have the knowledge to make it happen. If anyone is interested in this unit, let me know.
