Now what good is a mobile router if it doesn't know where itself is? The original stompbox image supports gpsd and I plan to get one of the small "gps mice" that are on ebay for $50-60.

A laptop running linux in the car can get gps data over the wifi, we can send the data off to a web server for real-time vehicle tracking and we can also log to a local disk for some war driving logs.
