Projects / gpstrans


GPStrans is a program which allows track, route, and waypoint data to be transferred to and from a Garmin GPS. It also supports Mayko mXmap formats which enable you to create a route using your 'favorite' map and load the data into the GPS. Tracks retrieved from your Garmin GPS can be transferred back into your Mayko mXmap-capable application and replayed under Linux. Garmin 38, 40, 45XL, ..., 90, Etrex, and Etrex Summit models are supported. It also reads the current time, retrieves product data, and can turn the GPS off.

    Release Notes: Altitude support for etrex waypoint download has been added. There are man page corrections and changes. The default model has been changed to n to avoid mysterious failures after upgrades. The deb dir has been removed. The source code is now indented (GNU style). Waypoints now work with GPSII+. Calculation of UTM zone and conversion from UTM to lat-lon have been fixed. The comments for waypoints are now left justified in the file (the upload code sent the comment with all the extra spaces right justified) added. There is also some code cleanup (warnings from gps/dms.c and grid/kkj.c (the kkj.c fix may not really be correct)).
