    Linux GPS

    Well this should get you start in Linux for navigation you will need two things

    1. gpsd - this is what links you gps device to a device linux can understand (example /dev/ttsUSB0 )

    2. gpsdrive - I use this but mostly for wardriving. You could use it for navigation but the problem is you have to manuly download maps and save them before hand. There is a script built in to do this but you need to know the long and lad to download them.

    I hope this helps

    I installed GPSdrive but cant get it running with FC4. The program pops up with the initial logo screen and then closes. I'm a linux newby so I still have a lot to learn.

    I also installed the RPM packages for GPSD but have no clue where it installed to
