GPS (Garmin-esque) software for Linux

Hi open source folks,

I've had a few GPL-V3 Linux projects brewing, which I have polished a bit and packaged up in case they might be useful for others.

PGP Packet Library

We (https://summitto.com) open-sourced a C++17 based PGP packet library.

We've seen quite a lot of bad publicity for PGP lately, but we hope this helps those who are still using it. Lo and behold:

I have an old Macbook Pro that is relatively bad with builds. I tried building android apps on 16.04 Ubuntu but it's giving me tons of errors.

My question is:
