Playing with gps

A while back I bought the Palm tomtom gps package for my treo 700p. This works great for traffic and saved our ass recently when traveling in Canada, but one of the things I have been looking for is way to track things like hiking or biking trips. While looking for something else I came across cotogps which can install on a palm. Cotogps connects to my gps receiver over bluetooth and gives various tracking information like lat,lon,direction, speed etc. The cool thing is it also allows you to create tracks then load them into http://www.gpsvisualizer.com which can render them as a google map. I haven’t tried putting the live map on a web site but I used command-shift-4 on a mac to do a screen shot which you can see below.
