Thanks, Chris, for that pointer. The USB-only Delorme Tripmate isn't 
going to be easy to bridge over, since they have chosen a chipset for 
which there are no mac/linux drivers to simulate a serial device.

A couple of the other usb-only gps units DO use chipsets that have 
drivers (wish I had researched this in more detail...), so I doubt if 
it is impossible to do, they just don't have the inclination or 
resources, I guess.

The Mac OS X "sees" the delorme as a USB device, and I wondered if 
someone knew about writing USB drivers were to poke at it they could 
extract the gps information in it's "native" mode rather than as a 
pseudo-serial device. But that is WAY outside my expertise.

If anyone thinks they can do this... let's talk -- I have a tripmate 
they can borrow to test!
