TomTom Bluetooth GPSs

Can we remove all references to the TomTom bluetooth GPSs that are designed for use with PDAs etc. as these are identical to any other manufacturer's bluetooth GPSs from our point of view.

Tripmaster gpx files

Iam using a Tripmaster v1.8a with a TomTom 510. To see not only traces in JOSM I use the following shell script. It converts all trackpoints in the gpx file to waypoints. The text for each waypoint is just the waypoint number, which is similar to the seconds since switching logging on (assumed logging frequency is 1 second).

# to avoid UTF problems:
export LANG=en

if [ -z "$1" ]
    echo "please give a gpx file as first argument"
    exit 1

# $pos contains the linenumber of the xml file where to insert
# the waypoints
pos=`grep -s -n '^<trk>$' $1|cut -d: -f1`
pos=`echo "$pos - 1"|bc`
sed -n "1,${pos}p" $1

while read i
 echo "$i"| grep --silent '<trkpt lon'
 if [ $? == "0" ]
  zl=$[ $zl+1 ]
  i=`echo "$i"|sed 's/trkpt/wpt/g'`
  i=`echo "$i"|sed "s#<name>.*</name>#<name>NR $zl</name>#ig"`
  echo $i
done < $1

pos=`echo "$pos + 1"|bc`

sed -n "${pos},\$p" $1

Editing maps on TomTom

Is their software that would allow me to make edits and corrections to the maps whilst out with a tomtom sat nav, and then upload these back preferably via one of the offline editors for further processing and review, prior to uploading to OSM database. --Farrpau 21:32, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
