I am trying to use my CF-31 Toughbook for navigation on the lake! I recently bought a boat and now live on a pretty large lake, Lake Lanier. My place is quite humble, but I love it!

I found a page that has a usable map on it and it has been enabled to work with GPS, which I think... involves tying GPS coordinates to two map points.

I found this same page, which uses my map with another program. It only runs on Android and IOS. So, the question is can I use this map, and this information, to plot a course with OpenMaps, or some other Linux Program?

Good question. I have dabbled with Linux GPS apps, but never used them to plot any course.

I anticipate someone will show up in this thread suggesting you run some Windows app under Wine.

Speaking of this... Does anyone have any maps (I'll pay for them) for the northern lakes in Red Lake, Ontario Canada? Little Dixie, Gullrock, Sully, etc around this area??? https://www.google.com/maps/@50.9845886 ... 844,11.75z

Thanks!

It's been awhile since I played with it, but this distribution is still active and works. Think I sent you a usb stick awhile back.
I was able to download maps and link them into the system and it worked great. They have a great forum also.

Yeah, I still have it and played with it a while back then, part of the problem is that I can not get good digital map of Lake Sidney Lanier, so far. This is one that I found on-line, which is pretty simple, and a page that I found that gives some info on using it.http://www.mobilemaplets.com/showplace/2370 ( I know that it says iOS or Android, but I got the same map and hope to use it with some Linux/Windows program. My version of the map is not, "GPS Aware?" But, since it is the same resolution, I am hoping to somehow use it.
