This seems to be how things are evolving.  I've got a simple logging 
system nearly up and running (comprising a single shell script that logs 
everything off the serial port to hourly logfiles, and rsyncs them to a 
central server, where they're gpsbabel'd).

Then I'll get them used to navigating with OSM (you and others have 
recommended Navit), and when they complain that the map is incomplete, 
I'll throw in the editing!  :-)

(I'm working up some documentation to post to... hmm, where? the OSM 
wiki?  Wikibooks?  Somewhere.)
