just an update to my previous threads on Garmin eTrex GPS:
I have been using Garmin eTrex GPS with gpsbabel very successfully with several previous versions of Ubuntu
Gpsbabel is very reliable and works great with the eTrex and Ubuntu
I have a couple of simple bash scripts to download waypoints and tracks as .gpx files (which my mapping software prefers)
I have attached them and would welcome any suggestions or improvements
ideally I would like to combine the options with feedback in to a single script & have it auto-detect the appropriate port etc. but my skills are not quite there yet
"what would you like to do?"
"1. to download waypoints"
"2. to download tracklogs"
"3 upload etc. etc.
Anyway I hope they will be of some help to someone.
I also have a script for converting and uploading Geocaching.com caches to the eTrex and bluetooth/USB Holux M-241 data-logger upload/download scripts & will post them here when I get them a bit more tidied up
The following scripts are well tested and commented so even a n00b should be able to follow them, but feel free to contact me or post to the list with questions or comments
