As of some recent version, Kismac now displays the traces where I have had a fix, and no trace when the fix was not available. I can live with that, actually, I'm very happy with that. In fact, I'm so happy with it that I would like to be able to save the trace from Kismac.
Hahahahah... that's the best way to make a feature request I think I've ever heard. I haven't played with saving traces... perhaps I should... or perhaps Mick should. I won't have time soon, and probably neither will Mick,
but it's a good idea. I'd like the trace saved in a format that's compatible with *something* else... perhaps MacGPS Pro?
There is one odd thing; when the GPS device is closed, and reset (assumed the only way to get it going again), I get a strange spike in my trace, possibly to the middle of nowhere (you long time mac users of the Map control panel know where you are) rather than a gap in the trace.
Yep - that would be a ghost fix at 0,0 (i.e. the equator due south of Greenwich). Not sure what can be done about that. Probably something, but I think it's for further down the track.
ehmmmm kismacng should
include traces in kismac files.... actually ard's request (which has been around since version .08a i think) is the reason that kismacng savefiles are not fully backward compatible...
