Ah, I have this software. I find it a bit cumbersome to use, so I
haven't used it much. I don't have a Rino unit to test the realtime
features, but BaseCamp can download waypoint and track data from most
all Garmin GPS units. It's my understanding that the Rinos just store
unit positions as waypoints, so I'm not surprised they have the
ability to download these for display on a computer.

Xastir does the same thing. If you attach a Garmin Rino to a computer
with Xastir, it can periodically poll the Rino for unit position data,
and display that along with the APRS data. Not having a Rino unit,
that's about the extend of my knowledge.
