I've got plans that largely involve making new hardware (or repurposing some existing SBC hw) to allow supporting new cards sanely, and then trying to graft kismet into it. I've had kismet working with an early version of pcap capture in the past but it was a pretty awful hack.

There are geotagging headers in PPI, the best way to add locational data to the pcap stuff would be that. For full wardriving, there's some power issues to be addressed and then i'd probably want to graft a kismet instance into it again.
