Hello, will gpsbabel run on android devices? such as a Samsung Galaxy
tablet? For moving data off a gps device, does the "type" of USB port
on the android make a difference, e.g. Host? I was also wondering if
there is a way to search the gpsbabel-misc archives? Thanks in
I've not come up with any use case that makes sense for the development cost required to do it.
If you have an even vaguely modern, high-end GPS (e.g. not a data logger or a respin of anything that's > 6 years old) and you have one of the small number of Android devices that has host mode USB support, it's just a matter of mounting your GPS and copying GPX files to and from it with something like the Linda File Manager. Frankly, combinations like data loggers, ancient serial GPSes, and Garmin protocol devices just don't make enough sense to fund the development for it. Converting Palm/OS files and real-time tracking on your phone or tablet make even less sense to me.
Android hasn't been discussed very much, if at all.
