sounds like this might not have been the right place to ask, after
all.  ;-)

in addition to gpsfake, there's an old tcl script floating around the
net called gpsfeed+.  it's a bit primitive, but i've used it in the
past when testing RoadMap.  ah, here:

an advantage over gpsfake (i think) is that you don't need logfiles
from a "real" gps unit -- gpsfeed can create GPS data from scratch,
and simulate travel in a few shapes -- circle, square, etc.  it's a
handy tool for some kinds of testing.
