As the happy owner of a Wintec WBT-201 (great service from Semsons,
four days to England), I've built (ported to far too grand) the beta
gpsbabel (gpsbabel-1.3.4-beta20070415) that supports the WBT-201 to the
N880, enabling the download of logged tracks to the N800, then you can
load the file into Maemo Mapper.

There is a tar ball at:


that contains the N800 binary and a README explaining how to set up
bluetooth serial connection and download (and optionally erase) the
logged tracks from a WBT-201. All the other gpsbabel functions should
also be there (e.g. export to kml).

Hope this is useful to other N800 / WBT-201 owners. Great device, had a
lot of fun today wandering around the New Forest, where it worked with
accuracy and reliability, even under quite heavy foliage. Works
flawlessly with Maemo Mapper.
