RoadMap is a navigation program for Unix and PocketPC that displays street maps. Most of the maps are provided by the US Census Bureau, and thus only the US has a decent coverage at this time. A specific area can be displayed by entering a street address (street number, street name, city, and state). It interfaces with a GPS receiver through gpsd or the serial line to track the car position. It has been designed to be usable on a Linux desktop or laptop computer, or on a PDA (Linux or PocketPC).

Release Notes: This release introduces GPX-based route/track/waypoint facilities, including route creation and editing. Streets are now labeled on-screen. Maps can be displayed using AGG anti-aliasing. Major UI flexibility enhancements. A new converter for Canadian maps. GPX format POI files are supported. Many other changes.
Release Notes: This version includes some bugfixes and some GUI improvements which allow the user to redefine the toolbar and menu. Improved maps, which were built from the TIGER 2004se files using the latest RoadMap code, are now available.
Release Notes: The look of the street is now much more professional. A Microsoft PocketPC port was created. It is now possible to take a screenshot of the map, and one can now "drag" the map using the mouse. Many bugfixes were made, including fixes for NMEA decoding with some GPS receivers and disappearing street shapes.
Release Notes: A driver architecture was added along with a Kismet interface as a driver and another driver for GpsDrive's friends protocol. There were also fixes to the documentation, packaging, and make files and a patch for displaying small distances. Some other small changes were made to make the program more user friendly by remembering user choices in the session file.
Release Notes: This release fixes the NMEA protocol decoding (regression in 1.0.8). It re-engineeres the make files to facilitate Debian integration. It was tested with the US Census Bureau's 2004 First Edition release of the tiger files (requiring some cosmetic changes in the RoadMap scripts). Some cleanups were made to the search paths to move toward compliance with the Linux FHS.
