The ability to change display font size and color is on my short list.
Perhaps an auto-night mode would be cool.
I'd like to hear any other suggestions/feedback. Especially any problems or bugs. I've tested Gippy quite a bit. It has been extremely stable for me running continuously for over 96 hours, using different GPSs and throwing random garbage data at it.
Current bugs I know about:
1. Gippy cannot kill the gpsd process if it was previously started by root, therefore gpsd output will not work.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gpsd
choose No for autostart
choose No for automatic USB
sudo /etc/init.d/gpsd stop
2. KML output checkbox has to be unchecked and checked again after changing GPS ports
Future features list:
Google Earth follow controls.
Analog gauge displays
UDP and TCP nmea
Customizable display colors and sizes
