Linux Friendly GPS?


I'm looking for a relatively cheap GPS system that can track my vehicle or personal movements (so needs to have a batter) that works well in reporting tracks to Linux.

My goal is to write code to determine automatically if my travels were for business purposes (determined by the stops along the trip) and generate a nice monthly or yearly report of business vs personal usage.

The cheap Cobra model I started with wasn't Linux friendly. I'm currently looking at possibly building something with an Audrino Mega, but would rather not re-invent the wheel.

Thanks for any tips.
