One way that will work with minimal compromise is to use
RouteConverter.exe, which is an interface to Gpsbabel.
As an example, 2 miles per hour is .894 meters per second, and the GPS
data I get is in second intervals.
So I can say 'Delete Positions' and enter 1 meter in the first option
and run RouteConverter and it will remove any reading that was reported
that was within 1 meter of the prior record. or, effectively, a bit over
that 2 miles per hour.
You need to calculate the distance in meters that you want to remove,
and then run this against the track recorded.
If you set it to 0 meters you will delete any reading where the car or
whatever was tracked was standing still, except for the first instance
at that point. If you then run it with the 1 meter per second you remove
anything moving at 3.6 kilometres per hour or less. Since I do not know
if any GPS unit records in factions of a meter, I suspect this is the
smallest interval you can actually remove... 1 second at 3.6 km per
Anyway, I do not know if this suits, but it is an approach that will
sort of work for you if the speed handled that way is okay.
