I was going to try that but I am away from home with limited
connectivity. Just hope that I don't hit dependency hell...
Any easy way to discover which binary was current back in December?
The lack of a release date in debs I find awkward.

gpsbabel. I use it all the time, but usually on desktops with real
RS232 ports. I only need this USB <--> RS232 converter when away
from home which is why I have only just discovered the problem.
Package: gpsbabel
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: utils
Installed-Size: 1304
Maintainer: Bernd Zeimetz <bzed@debian.org>
Architecture: i386
Version: 1.4.2-3


Thanks for the quick response. I haven't yet looked on KML for anything
relevant. I don't fancy compiling a stock kernel on this atom netbook..
