GPS Navigation Software

GpsDrive is a car (bike, ship, plane, foot) navigation system. GpsDrive displays your position provided from a GPS on a zoomable map. The map file is auto-selected depending on your position and preferred map scale. All GPS receivers which support the NMEA protocol should be usable, as well as many USB GPSs using a binary protocol known to the Gpsd GPS daemon and multiplexer.
