NAME

       v.in.gpsbabel   -  Import  waypoints,  routes,  and  tracks  from a GPS
       receiver or GPS download file into a vector map.

KEYWORDS

       vector, import, GPS

SYNOPSIS

       v.in.gpsbabel
       v.in.gpsbabel help
       v.in.gpsbabel     [-vwrtpk]       [input=string]        [output=string]
       [format=string]   [proj=string]   [--overwrite]  [--verbose]  [--quiet]

   Flags:
       -v
           Verbose mode

       -w
           Import waypoints

       -r
           Import routes

       -t
           Import track

       -p
           Force vertices of track or route data as points

       -k
           Do not attempt projection transform from WGS84

       --overwrite
           Allow output files to overwrite existing files

       --verbose
           Verbose module output

       --quiet
           Quiet module output

   Parameters:
       input=string
           Device or file used to import data
           Default: /dev/gps

       output=string
           Name for output vector map (omit for display to stdout)

       format=string
           Format of GPS input data (use gpsbabel supported formats)
           Default: garmin

       proj=string
           Projection  of  input data (PROJ.4 style), if not set Lat/Lon WGS84
           is assumed

DESCRIPTION

       v.in.gpsbabel allows the user to import waypoint, route, and track data
       from  a  locally  connected  GPS receiver or a text file containing GPS
       data of many common formats.  Translation  is  done  via  the  GPSBabel
       program.

       This software is not intended as a primary means of navigation.

NOTES

       v.in.gpsbabel   automatically  reprojects  data  using  the  projection
       settings of the current location.  The default input data projection is
       lat/lon WGS84. If your GPS outputs data using another projection or map
       datum, you may include the PROJ.4 parameters defining  your  projection
       in   the  proj  option  and  v.in.gpsbabel  will  reproject  your  data
       accordingly.  Great care must be taken to get these parameters correct!
       The  automatic  transform  may be skipped by using the -k flag in which
       case the data will be imported unprojected, as it appears in the input.

       Route and Track data may be uploaded as a series of points by using the
       -p  flag,  otherwise  they  will  be  imported  as  lines.  You can run
       v.in.gpsbabel multiple times and merge the line and point vectors  with
       the  v.patch command if you want, but take care when merging dissimilar
       attribute tables.

EXAMPLES

   GPS device connected via USB adapter
       Import waypoints, tracks, routes from /dev/ttyUSB0 and save to a  GRASS
       vector map:
       v.in.gpsbabel -w input=/dev/ttyUSB0 format=garmin output=waypoints
       v.in.gpsbabel -t input=/dev/ttyUSB0 format=garmin output=tracks
       v.in.gpsbabel -r input=/dev/ttyUSB0 format=garmin output=routes

   GPS device connected via serial adapter
       Import waypoint data from a Garmin GPS connected at /dev/ttyS0 and save
       to a GRASS vector map named waypoints:
       v.in.gpsbabel -w input=/dev/ttyS0 format=garmin output=waypoints

   Import track data from a GPX
       Import track data from a GPX text file and save to a GRASS  vector  map
       named tracks.
       v.in.gpsbabel -t input=gpslog.gpx format=gpx output=tracks

   Import route data from GPS connected at /dev/gps
       Import  route data as a series of points from a Garmin GPS connected at
       /dev/gps and save to a GRASS vector map named routePoints:
       v.in.gpsbabel -r -p file=/dev/gps format=garmin output=routePoints
