not sure if I got you right, but if you "only" want to record a track you 
could use Maemo Mapper and export the track to gpx after your trip. There are 
several tools out there to visualize and plan you trips; I use viking¹.

One trap MaemoMapper has to offer is that it is not capable to start the gps 
subsystem of the N810 automatically. Therefore I installed gpxview². I start 
it first, then MaemoMapper. In MaemoMapper I then switch GPS communication
