I seem to recall gpsbabel may help you out here getting the tracks off the unit. If you're lucky and its in a format it understands ... Otherwise I guess it wouldn't be too horrible to install the connection software on a windows box which you could use when you need to pull off data files.

It really needs a bigger screen than the eeepc to use it well. Same with Mercaartor. So it might be better to use these editors when you're back at home rather than in the field.
