FoxtrotGPS – ”the friendly FOSS GPS” – is a map application that is based on TangoGPS. It has plenty of features and uses Neo's built-in GPS to show your current location. It automatically downloads maps from eg. http://www.openstreetmap.org/ and you can download map tiles for offline use too. It is translated into several languages, and more translations are welcome.
FoxtrotGPS is a map application which can show your current location. It also has features like showing points of interests and waypoints, but at its base it's not an actual navigation application which would tell you routes.
Installing and Running FoxtrotGPS
Install package foxtrotgps.
Run it from the menu or from command line. You may want to start gpsd GPS daemon, if it's not automatically started for you by the distribution, and likewise turn on the GPS chip on the FreeRunner (for example om gps power 1 with the om tool from omhacks package).
