Gps tracker with display

I would like to make a gps tracker that will display a map of where you have been. I would like to use Adafruits ultimate GPS breakout and Adafruits 1.8 in tft screen with the microsd and 5 position switch. Can you help me get started, I am using an Arduino Uno, thought i have an Arduino Yun, and a home made Arduino.

Google "open source gps tracker", quite some useful link turning up should help get you started:

It just simple. i Have attached simple program Where you get the data from GPS.
First you need to store data into SD card shield. While moving postion one point to another. You find data being recorded in SD card.

Once you ensure it is correct . Then you can interface with gsm and lcd sheild

Thanks, but any ideas on how to do the map that shows where you have been?

For the maps you could copy them from somewhere convert to bmp (which is the only format you can use with the TFT) and store them on the SD.. You may be able to use just one large map and display part of it.

Of course you can't and should not do this (and of course I may not saying you should) as any upto date map is copyright!

Did you try to use gpsgate and gps-server.net software?

Some time ago I was working on own GPS tracker which received data using GPS module and transmits it to external source via GPRS. There are useful tools to check data through TCP/IP.
