I like the licence conditions -

The author grants a non-exclusive license to use the program, free of charge, if the user:
Does not use the program for illegal purposes;
does not practice activities that destroy or degrades the environment;
does not practice polluting activities;
does not throw trash on the ground or through the car’s windows;
when going to the beach and creeks takes his trash back until finding a trash collector;
does not practice any activities that hurts animals, like hunting, out-of-season fishing, pigeon shooting, dog fight, etc.;
does not buy wild animals that, by law, may not be created out of their natural environment;
has ecological conscience and protects nature.
People that for any reason do not fit the conditions above, are expressly forbidden to use the program.

Cheers
Greg
I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

In season's fine because we don't hurt the fish :))))

Obviously that's not what he means but I got a chuckle.

The guy's native language is Portugese and he asks that if you find a problem with his English (especially word selection and syntax) please contact him and he will correct it.

I've been using GPS Trackmaker for many years. Great software with only one deficiency - it doesn't use geopositioned maps so the only way to get a properly configured moving map background is to import as a jpg/gif and then provide two calibration points. If it could use ecw maps then it would be perfect.

For simple moving map navigation I use Geovisu geovisu.free.fr/geovisu/english/index.htm

Works perfectly for the 250k maps from Geoscience
