More Info:

 As it is christmas time, here is a small gift:
Gebabbel 0.1 Beta is out :) .

Gebabbel[1] is a frontend for the famous
gpsbabel[2] command line tool. It was written
using Trolltech's[3] incredible Qt4 toolkit and
therefore runs on Linux, Mac OS X 10.4 (both Intel
and PowerPC Macs) as well as on Windows driven
systems. It is not a replacement for the existing
frontends but my attempt to learn more about cross
platform hacking using Qt4.


* Free software with source code published under
the GNU GPL. No ads, no spyware, no malicious code
* Cross-platform availability thanks to Trolltechs
Qt4 classes
* Arbitrary amount of named presets to store your
preferred gpsbabel commands. Example presets are
* Pasting of gpsbabel command lines into a line
edit for easy preset creation
* Highly configurable via its configuration file
* Creation and editing of presets via the
graphical user interface or a command line edit
* Usage of built in (Mac and Windows) or an
arbitrary gpsbabel executable
* gpsbabel updates will not necessarily require an
update of Gebabbel
* Support of almost all currently known gpsbabel
* Application prepared for easy translation to
further languages. Currently supported languages
include english and german

Gebabbel has successfully been used to exchange
data with a Garmin device. It surely contains
bugs, so if you find one please let me know.
Tranlations are wanted. If you want it to appear
in your mother tongue, translating it simply is
done by editing an XML text file. No programming
skills are required.
