GPSMap is a Java application that displays maps and shows your position with the aid of a GPS device. It can track paths, load overlays (such as shape files), and download maps from the MapBlast and Expedia servers.

Release Notes: Serial communication on Windows systems was fixed. Installation of the serial Java library is not necessary anymore, as long as you use the start scripts (available for Windows and Unix systems). The ability to export track data in gpx format was added. Some bugs with graphics were fixed (only on Windows systems).
Release Notes: Reading of gpx tracks was fixed.
Release Notes: Lots of refactoring was done. Helper classes were moved from the org.dinopolis.gpstool package to subpackages. Only the applications remain in the main package. Separate jars were made for utils, gpsinput (communication with GPS devices), gpstool (command line application), and gpsylon (moving map application). The resource files were renamed from /.gpsmap/GPSMap.properties to ~/.gpsylon/Gpsylon.properties. Users need to copy their private settings to the new location/name. The default world map (from gpsdrive) is used as the top level map.
Release Notes: Basic location marker (waypoint) functionality was added. It is now possible to load CSV and gpsdrive files, and create markers. build.xml was changed, and a bug in the track layer where the cancel button caused a null pointer exception was fixed. "Save as" functionality for saving screenshots was also added.
Release Notes: Bugfixes and new features, including a progress indicator when downloading maps and better GPS signal visualization.
