Apemap is a mobile application for off-road navigation, not much use without a GPS receiver.
For testing, I enabled a Linux PC to act as a Bluetooth GPS device to which Apemap can connect. As is, the program (gpsd.py) provides NMEA GPS data from gpsd.mainframe.cx (Sunnyvale, CA, USA), but one could easily connect some other local GPS receiver.
