    Question Kismet gps and wardriving

    Hi, im trying to gather some data for a mini report on wardriving but am having trouble with GPS and kismet.


    Im looking for a GPS device that will work with gpsd and kismet, does anyone have any recomendations? i was thinking about using a tomtom XL IQ Routes Edition 2 but i have no idea if it will work. Iv tryed googleing for for it but i just get crap tutorials on how kismet works.


    Also iv got kismet working fine and it gathers data, but how do i search through this data i.e. how do i put bssid etc into an excel file, iv tryed scripts iv got offline but they dont work. This is without GPS data.

    What GPS devices does kismet recommend? That's where I would start looking.

    I did get a Holux GPSlim236 blue tooth GPS receiver working with BT but did not try Kismet. I was trying airodump-ng but it had problems at the time. I need to dig out my notes and try again. You need Gpsd running first as far as I can remember.

    The new kismet will talk directly to compatible gps devices now. No need for gpsd screwing up the data.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    I've not seen any satnav that can be used with a computer.

    Got everything working fine, saw barry's guide in another section (link bellow) and got everything working fine.

    To Barry's How to get a compatible USB GPS to work with Kismet
    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...rk-kismet.html

    I just connected my device and edited the kismet config and everything worked fine once my gps got a signal.

    The only question i have left is, is there anyway to combine the .kml files so that i could go for a drive and keep adding to my original file so that i map a city in a couple of days instead of trying to do it in one run.

    Cheers Barry
