FlyWithMe Current LaptopGPS program. It displays distance and course from the moving position to a waypoint every 15 seconds when in the auto mode. The other mode calculates distance and true course between two waypoints. The ladybug compass displays the true course from the current position to a designated waypoint. A link to a database of waypoints is provided.


The LaptopGPS project provides a testbed for GPS related routines. Eventually, it will provide a GPS game engine where the geocacher can interact with the game. It is HTML based and can run as a local server or on a remote server as it utilizes xampplite and MySQL. When web services become available for cellphones and other GPS enabled devides, the game can be played remotely.
