tangoGPS

tangoGPS

tangoGPS is an open source lightweight user friendly map and GPS application. It uses the gpsd daemon to obtain data from the GPS receiver. With gpsd, multiple GPS client applications can share access to devices without contention or loss of data.

By default tangoGPS uses map data from the Openstreetmap project. Additionally a variety of other repositories can be easily added such as Maps-for-free and OpenAerialMap. The software is intended primarily for mobile devices.
