Yes, I know about those.  I think the ubloc line has a version that
does this but it is made for the automotive roadmap type display.

I think the way to learn is to jump in and make one.  Start by
re-implementing an example filter then go the next step and the next.

Also you can get receivers with up to 50Hz position updates (you have to run the com link at very high speeds to accommodate all the data that they send).   This well help minimize the "staleness" of the GPS fix versus true position.
