 Thats a great idea .. but what I actually thinking of was some plugin
to let JOSM do the download from GPS device rather that a long Command
in CLI( command line interface).
$gpsbabel [options] -i INTYPE -f INFILE -o OUTTYPE -F OUTFILE
get rid of this ..apparently

But  TomH 's idea is superb too .
