Yes, there are additional terms like you must include the text of the GPL=
make it readily findable. They're listed in the license. You may find =
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html a bit more digestable.
Notably, you must be prepared to offer the source of GPSBabel and any cha=
you've made to it.
As a general "playing nice with others" note, if you're using it in a
program, please consider helping the project with code or cash. As you
learned when you decided to not develop your own code, developing code fo=
supporting a few hundred GPSes isn't a trivial task.
