    Interesting! Do you have any good mapping ptogram to use with it? I’ve looked around but it seems I have to use QTopia or Xynth with some suitably compiled gpsdrive or something.

    What I’m looking for is a SDL program that would give me a nice looking fullscreen map viewer without waiting 5 minutes to boot :)

    I did compile the bluetooth modules and got the bluez tools from a Zaurus – works nicely:) So the next step is to compile gpsd and see what I can get from my bluetooth GPS and creating some scripts to load the modules.

    Hey henrik.. my opinion! As soon as DirectFB v0.9.26 is released, I’ll gtk with directfb support – DirectFB can use SDL as Backend… then I’ll compile gpsdrive with SDL support… Ok this was the theory, I hope I can compile all those libs.

    cheers michu

    Good Luck!

    I will try myself to get gpsdrive to work, but time and talent seems to be in short supply.

    I did get gpsd to work with my bluetooth GPS so at least I have an incentive to continue.
