GpsMeter: All you can measure in 30 secs

[If you are looking for the distance covered by a degree check this post instead.]

Developers are getting a bit too grouchy with their trial periods. GpsMeter for example, is a PocketPC app developed in Germany by MASPware that will let you try it out for about 30 seconds. That's it. It has a nice look & feel and it is pretty simple to use.

After connecting to a GPS receiver, set the app to save timestamps automatically to a fixed interval. It will start displaying in two modes the distances from two or more points. You can export locations, waypoints to Google Earth through KML files. Some of the menu options are still in german. A full license costs US$12.95 at PocketGear. Time's up.
