Hi everybody,

I've picked apart the changes in tangoGPS 0.99.4 that support
the Zephyr HxM heartrate-monitor, and had a go at integrating them
into FoxtrotGPS; to wit, a branch including that work is available:


I don't actually have a HxM in my posession, though (at least not yet)--
so I can't really test this. If you have one of these devices, and can
test this branch, would you please? :)

The instructions at <http://www.foxtrotgps.org/build.html>
still apply, but you'll also need the BlueZ `libluetooth' library
(in Debian and Ubuntu systems, I believe the package is

"Don't be afraid to ask (λf.((λx.xx) (λr.f(rr))))."
