One of our engineers created a tutorial for anyone interested in using Python for GPS tracking - check it out!

Nice job. Python has become the preferred language for serious scientific programing with great Physics and Math libraries, pyODE, pyQt, tKinter, cython (a binding to fast c libraries), and everything else under the sun. Learning Python is a solid investment and you will find it in the code provided at academic gatherings on everything from AI to medical seizure monitoring and massive ad-hoc networking research. Last year I was able to hook up a GPS module to a little Mini2440 running Linux (Debian) and get sensible output in a matter of minutes. Awesome. And installing was just “apt-get install python” and I think pySerial. I’ll definitely have a look at your application. Debian + Python on small Linux boards has proven the most productive thing for me since Forth faded in popularity (a long time ago in a galaxy far far away).
