Is there a way to get data grom a GPS automatically into pskmail? Or myst 
lat/lon be entered manually for location reporting?

I ask because of the nice photo of the eeePC on the wiki, showing the APRS 
screen with no only the lat/lon displayed, but also the heading and speed. How 
was this accomplished? I would love to see GPS integration some time in the 
future - if not totally automatically, at least a simple way to click a button 
to fetch the data from a connected GPS receiver.

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail 
in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And 
radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them 
there. The only difference is that there is no cat.  --Albert Einstein, 
describing radio.
