Converting GPS data to distance-time data

I have some .GPX/.CSV MyTracks GPS files that I would like to use to create distance-time graphs. I can do this using GPS Visualizer but this creates the graphs for me and what I want is the raw data. Is there a website, program or script (Linux or Windows) that will allow me to do this?

I could purchase Yoda, but....

Just got a Garmin nĂ¼vi 1450. Garmin will let me download voices for it. Some of these are amusing, but are there other sources for voices beside the official Garmin Store? I'm willing to consider both free and paid voice packs if they're out there.

Argggh, I just want a radio that doesn't think I'm in Guam

I'd like to purchase an aftermarket radio for my Ford Freestyle. I purchased an eclipse radio 4 years ago but it has turned into an epic POS. I'd like the following features: -Bluetooth -ability to plug in my iPhone to play podcasts and Pandora etc -gps navigation -xm would be nice, but the other features are more important I researched my last radio and got the worst POS imaginable. So your suggestions are welcome. I'd be ecstatic if I could find something that functioned at this point.

I'm looking for information regarding the feasibility of hidden GPS tracking for bicycles

I'm looking for information regarding the feasibility of a hidden GPS tracking system for bicycles. The goal is to track/recover stolen bicycles. This product looks promising (if it was actually available), but also looks like it would be easy to spot/remove. Ideally it should be able to be inserted into the frame tubing so it could be installed in various types of bikes. This is for a community wide effort with local law enforcements cooperation. Has anyone heard of this being done before? Either on an individual level, or better yet a community Implementation of some kind. Thanks all.

Best iPhone GPS app for a hiker?

Are there any great (or even good) hiking specific GPS apps for iPhone? Ideally, I'd be able to download a particular region of maps, enter and set waypoints, and show the distance and direction from my current location to a previously defined waypoint. Current speed and time to waypoint would be nice, but not necessary. The app must work without an internet connection. [more inside]

Navigation without data connection on Android

I used to have an app on my Nokia E71 that would allow me to set waypoints and then provide a distance and bearing back to that position using the phone's built-in GPS. You could store thousands of GPS waypoints, either by using your current location or by entering long-lat; and organise waypoints into groups. There was no need for any data access. Does something like this exist on Android (HTC Desire)? What I'm not looking for is an offline SatNav program like CoPilot or MobileNavigator.
