The GPSMap program is an elaborate GPS navigation program using any type of map in bitmap (BMP) format. The user can directly determine its position on earth which is shown with a cross hatch on the map. Digital dials next to the map continuously show speed, position (lat/lon), height, bearing, compass, date and time etc. In addition, a Speech module (!)continuously tells the user this information. The program uses the moving-map principle and the user can easily zoom in to the map (5 levels deep). Maps can be downloaded from the internet or scanned by the user (not supplied by us). While in motion, the program stores all route data (speed, position, height, bearing, date and time) which can be played back later so one can see exactly what route was followed and which places were visited at any time. Furthermore, the program offers many more user-friendly features.
