I saw the BSGPSPDA project. However, it only seems to be available
for Windows based PDAs and I have a Palm. That may be the perfect
software to use with a PDA, but I won't know until I buy a different PDA.
I have a program called USAPhotoMaps on my PC. It downloads USGS
photo and topo map images from Terraserver. It can supply a moving
map display which is the big feature that most programs lack. But of
course, it requires a laptop to run. I tried contacting the author
about letting me port the program to a PDA, but even though he
supplies the C source file, he won't release the other files such as
the h and rc files. I think that would have been a great program to
use as a start for a PDA app, but it is not to be.
Maybe I'll take a look at BSGPSPDA (what a name!) in terms of porting
it to the palm. That might be a fun project!
