    usb gps dongle navigation

    Hy, can anyone help me with installing ANY navigation system on my laptop. I bought usb dongle gt-730f http://www.canmore.com.tw/productsho...1&mainkidname=

    and I learned how to connect to it (using gpsd) but I can't find any good program to run it on. I have tried
    navi(instalation folder is empty and can't find navi.xml....)
    foxrotGPS(works but I can't make route...)
    and others...
    I have problem of finding program to work in witch I can set a route and that it is navigating me in the city. Like garmin, but on laptop. Does anyone know anything that can help me please, It is making me nuts for over a week.

    p.s. I'm using Ubuntu 11.10

    Have you looked in the Software Center?

    Code:
    $ apt-cache search gps | grep navig
    gpsdrive - Car navigation system
    gpsdrive-data - Car navigation system
    navit - Car navigation system with routing engine
    navit-data - Car navigation system with routing engine - data files
    navit-graphics-gtk-drawing-area - Car navigation system with routing engine - GTK+ graphic plugin
    navit-graphics-qt-qpainter - Car navigation system with routing engine - Qt graphic plugin
    navit-gui-gtk - Car navigation system with routing engine - GTK+ GUI
    navit-gui-internal - Car navigation system with routing engine - internal GUI
    I found two in the Ubuntu repos: gpsdrive and navit.
