Can't get my Garmin GPS recognized
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 11, 2012
Hi everyone !
It's been two days that i'm searching... Since I'm totally new to Ubuntu 12.10 (and I like pretty much !), I really need help. Here is my problem :
I cannot get any of cgps, xgps, gpsd, viking, mapsource (through wine) to recognize my Garmin Etrex Legend GPS. I run a Toshiba Satellite L300, and my GPS was recognized in Vista, even if I couldn't see it in "My computer" to see the files at this time. I read that Garmin make it impossible to do (at least for my this model). Besides, it seems there is no specific option to make the GPS work like a USB device in its internal settings.
In Ubuntu, I might be close to solve the problem, because it is there, as lsusb tells:

install linux on GPS device?

this might be a silly question, but...
a few years ago, i bought a Nortech Navigation E-GPS010. this is a car/hand-held GPS unit that, for a while, worked pretty well. in fact, it still works well. the map version on my GPS is dated 2006, so i thought i'd upgrade; however, the crappy company who makes it (see: www.ferro-works.com/) offers absolutely appalling support. through hours of searching google, i've found out that, in fact, there are no updates for this device whatsoever.
that pissed me off...
i sent an e-mail to Ferro Works kindly inviting them to solve my problem, or invite me to try out a competitor's product (on their dime, of course). after waiting for 6 days, they explained in their poorly spelled reply that the latest map data for this (no-longer sold OR supported) device is for, you guessed it, 2006. also, they have denied my request to pay for a useful product (and i can't think of a way to MAKE them do anything...).
basically, i'm wondering if
BuiltIn GPS Panasonic Toughbook CF29
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 21, 2013
I've been searching and scouring the forums and Google for help, but to no avail, any help would be greatly appreciated!
I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed on a Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 with a built-in GPS device. It's dualbooted with WinXP Pro SP3. The GPS device works fine under Windoze, however, I cannot get anything to work with it in Ubuntu, and I'm not sure the system even sees it guessing from some of the error messages I see trying different things.
Can anyone offer some suggestions? Is there anything I can copy/pasta here to help? Thank you very much in advance!

Bluetooth GPS on Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 23, 2006
I recently bought an iBlue PS3200 bluetooth GPS. Nice little unit, very small, with great battery life, I've easly gotten 15 hours out of a single charge.
I'm using Suse 10.1, with GPS Drive software for mapping. Getting the unit to work was very simple. Since I also have a bluetooth cell phone that I use as a modem (different thread on here), the only thing I had to make sure of, was to bind the GPS unit to a different channel.
I have a small shell script, with just 3 lines:
rfcomm bind 1
rfcomm release 1
When you turn on the unit, if you discover new bluetooth devices, it should just show up. In GPSDrive preferences, go to the "settings 2" tab. Check off the "use serial conn." box, and put "/dev/rfcomm1" into the box below, with a baud rate of 38400.
The script file will bind the channel, and start up gpsdrive. When you exit gpsdrive, it will release the channel.

GPS and minicom
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 15, 2005
Hi people, I have this project where I should display the results of data (longitude/latitude) of a GPS into a file in Linux OS. I just tried using mincom and it worked just the same as hyperterminal in windows. But how can I get the data itself. I am thinking two things but I can't figure how to do it. One is to get the log or history (I can't find it) of the data displayed. Or edit a file(I can't find it also) and redirect the output of the minicom in a new file. Somebody please help. THank you.

GPS Hardware/Software Recommendations
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 11, 2010
I'm looking at getting a USB GPS receiver for my (currently) headless Debian box and would like to know which ones people would recommend
etc etc. I'd also like know which software is recommended, I don't need advanced maps, maybe simple logging or text output onto an lcd. Obviously the software needs to be CLI based.
Another Bluetooth GPS Connection Question
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 14, 2009
I'm a Linux newbie, but some people have categorized me a "Power User" of the other operating system. So I think I get the concepts, but may also need some very basic tips (like how do I get someplace to enter commands, what's really an Applet and can I change applets or whatever without rendering something inoperative).
(1) Dell Inspiron Mini.
(2) Teletype GPS (has worked with Windows and Windows Mobile) described as "generic" by the manufacturer, who doesn't support Linux.
(1) Whatever came with the Dell/Ubuntu Hardy Heron and whatever Bluetooth installation was there. I don't know how to upgrade or change this.
(2) SeaFarer Free Edition chartplotter software with downloaded NOAA navigational charts.
(1) When I try to run the Bluetooth Manager (maybe that's called an Applet) that came with the computer, it "recognizes" the device, but it can't pair with it.
(2) The Bluetooth Manager "Connect New Device&qu
