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


       vector, import, GPS

SYNOPSIS help    [-vwrtpk]      [input=string]       [output=string]       [format=string]
       [proj=string]   [--overwrite]  [--verbose]  [--quiet]

           Verbose mode

           Import waypoints

           Import routes

           Import track

           Force vertices of track or route data as points

           Do not attempt projection transform from WGS84

           Allow output files to overwrite existing files

           Verbose module output

           Quiet module output

           Device or file used to import data
           Default: /dev/gps

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

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

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

DESCRIPTION  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  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  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 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.


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


        db.execute,,, v.db.connect, v.patch gpsbabel from
       cs2cs from PROJ.4
