GpsDrive is a car (bike, ship, plane) navigation system. GpsDrive displays your position provided from your NMEA capable GPS receiver on a zoomable map, the map file is autoselected depending of the position and prefered scale. Speech output is supported if the "festival" software is running. The maps are autoselected for best resolution depending of your position and can be downloaded from Internet. All Garmin GPS reveiver with a serial output should be usable, also other GPS receiver which supports NMEA protocol.
GpsDrive is written in C with use of the GTK+ graphic toolkit and runs with Linux and FreeBSD.

Rats. I finally got a GPS, the software on it is pretty useless. I searched for Linux GPS software, and I found this post. I tried the kraftvoll link and it is now a parked domain.

"Buy this domain

The domain may be for sale by its owner!"

But, all is well, I think: shows recent activity. Sadly, this software is for a standard PC, not for a GPS device such as my low end Nextar M3.
