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 www.ncc.up.pt/gpsman/g....

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

    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.
