    Is there a way to record nmea data to a text file using qpegps.
    I'm experimenting with the idea of replaying real flights in the (excellent) open source flight simulator I'm hoping to use a haicom cf compact flash card with my zaurus C700.
    If this is not possible is there a linux command line way of writing the data to a file on a zaurus.

    Any Ideas greatly appreciated.

      You can use the tracklog function of qpegps.
      To record nmea directly, use
      "cat /dev/ttyS0 > filename"
      (directly copies the data from com1 to a file).
      You may use cumulus, too. It is designed for recording flight data (especially for gliders).
