GPSMan

GPSMan (GPS Manager) is a graphical manager of GPS data that makes possible the preparation, inspection, and edition of GPS data in a friendly environment. It supports communication with both Garmin, Lowrance, and Magellan receivers, and real-time support for any receiver using NMEA-0183. It can also be used in command-line mode.

            Ugly and non-functional
            I tried it. A settings window appeared and asked

            whether I had a lowrance, magellan or garmin GPS.

            As I have something else, I didn't know what to

            answer. There is another settings window to specify

            use of the NMEA protocol. Since the NMEA

            protocol is basically a universal standard among

            GPS units, it should be a choice in that initial

            question.

            I was able to specify NMEA protocol in the settings

            later but I could not get it to communicate with my

            gps unit. I don't know whether it supports gpsd.

            Some different errors appeared, including what

            looked like coding errors, and a dialog box

            appeared which could not be removed.

            contact the author
            I am trying to contact the author of GPSman,

            Miguel, but i get an error from the server at the

            university where he should be based.

            Any explanation?

            Thanks.

            This behaviour is obviously for security reasons.

            But it can be easily avoided: edit the file main.tcl and replace the line

            if { $UNIX && $env(USER) == "root" } {

            by

            if { 0 } {

            Best regards,

            Can't download update
            Fine program, but the download page gets you to an update package supposed to be at http://www.ncc.up.pt/gpsman/gpsmanhtml/update_6.0.1.tgz.

            It seems to fix quite a lot of nasty bugs (why not 6.0.2?), but the file is "404 Not Found" :(((

            this is one of those truly unique
            little programs that pops up a little window & refuses to run if you are logged in as root or creates a screenful of errors complaining about not being able to do anything when logged in as an ordinary user.
