gps, riding, etc

So I’ve spent way to much time trying to do something that should be very simple. Download a track from my gps, and display it on a map.

This proved to be much more frustrating that I expected, and finally gave up trying to do it on os x and just did it with my linux box using gpsbabel (tiger seems to have broken the osx version).

Then I wrote a python script to split the GPX file into individual track files, and then used gmapper to display the results on google maps. gpsvisualizer works too, but the maps don’t look quite as nice.

If anyone knows of an easier way to do that on osx, that actually works, I’d like to know.

So anyway, Saturdays ride:
