Current goals (OSM-related)

  • Having my village and the places around mapped completely Pretty much complete :)
  • Building a cheap GPS-Logger, using the AVR32-based NGW100 Got a Garmin eTrex Vista HCx now. Maybe I'll put the NGW into my car.
  • Beeing able to use a combination of GPSdrive/Kismet/OSM/RoadNAV?/GrassGIS/MySQL/Navit and maybe GoogleEarth for mapping/wardriving/data storage/data usage/navigation. Gpsdrive is still installed, but a good map source is missing. Navit is the tool of choice right now.


  • Most of the time, I use my IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad T60 for mapping/geocaching and such. This might seem a bit unhandy but you get the best software you could think of. Battery lifetime isn't perfect but over 3 hours are ok for most cases. Move to the Garmin eTrex Vista HCx. Besides I have an Android Smartphone (LG Optimus Speed/2X) for fetching geocache-data.
  • In the past I used a Royaltek RGM-2000 connected via USB (Sirf II)
  • Today I use my NaviBe GB732 via Bluetooth (it has a Sirf III) and it works perfectly (I just forget to switch it off after mapping so the battery runs out :/) Somehow the battery-circuit failed and one can only use it when powered via USB.
  • I'd love to get some nice Garmin-device but right now, I just can't afford it Got an eTrex Vista HCx now :D

What I did

Navit as IOTW
