|Description:||GPS-based navigation tool (2.08pre12-1)|
GpsDrive is a car (bike, ship, plane) navigation system. GpsDrive displays your position provided from your NMEA capable GPS receiver on a zoomable map, the map file is autoselected depending of the position and prefered scale. Speech output is supported if the "festival" software is running. The maps are autoselected for best resolution depending of your position and can be downloaded from Internet. All Garmin GPS reveiver with a serial output should be usable, also other GPS receiver which supports NMEA protocol. For optional MySQL support, install 'mysql-shlibs'. Garmin is disabled in this Fink package at this time.
'man gpsdrive' to get started. You may have to adjust the /dev path for communication with Garmin. There are reports that mouse buttons do not work correctly.

I had this problem and haven't been able to fix it, but I have found that with a two-button mouse you can actually duplicate the right and left button behaviours in a strange way: you have to click both buttons first the mouse clicking the one you want and without relasing clicking the second one, thus: left-click-hold, right click-release: left click right-click-hold, left click-release: right click
