Map-based navigation system
'Gpsdrive' is a map-based navigation system. It displays your position on a zoomable map provided from a NMEA-capable GPS receiver. The maps are autoselected for the best resolution, depending of your position, and the displayed image can be zoomed. Maps can be downloaded from the Internet with one mouse click. The program provides information about speed, direction, bearing, arrival time, actual position, and target position. Speech output is also available. All Garmin GPS receivers with a serial output should be usable, as well as other GPS receivers which support the NMEA protocol.
