Some Notes About GPS Software 2017-04-20


I had taken these notes a while back when I was testing out some GPS sofwtare. I assume I was looking for something generally like OSMAND but for a laptop rather than an Android device. Of course the usual requirements of not depending on interpreter software ruled out a number of them. Maybe someone else will find this brief list of interest.
