http://serialio.com/products/adaptors/GPS_BR305_Z6.htm

Does anyone have experience with this one as to how it is ?
Also any good map software for the Z like iGuidance v2?

I have something very similar to this (it uses a ps2 connector, has a magnetic base, and is about the same size and shape). It works fine, though I need to use external power (I spliced in a battery pack to the serial cable (which I had to make).

IMHO, these are far more useful than the CF GPSes as you can then stash your Z somewhere safe and have the GPS in a useful location.

Mine is a Haicom 203e.

WEll, the ambicom GPS is on its' way from Amazon, I'll let you know how it works.

Here's a teaser: GPSDrive running on the Z, in a VNC session from the PocketWorkstation Debian distro. It doesn't look too bad at all... wink.gif

Just to clarify about the HaiCOM 303 MMF CF GPS, this is the one I finally bought, the GPS is foldable and it is coming with an external antenna mounted on a magnet that you can plug in the CF module. So, it is possible to mount the antenna on a backpack, car top, etc and keep the Z in your hands or secured somewhere else. The wire is about 6 ft long and I think the magnet is strong enough to hold the antenna module on the top of a car on a highway (I assume you respect speed limits and there is limits and your car is not a F1).

Hi Bamzi

What maps software you use with your Ambicom CF GPS card?

thx

since i live in india there arent any gps usable maps around so i use a combination of scanned maps for my city(bangalore) along with some maps i downloaded from the net. the software i currently use is qpeGPS which has an option of importing maps. it isnt the best solution but its the best i could manage.

hope this helps.

cheers

Somone help me out ( i have a SL6000 )

I got a socket rev f and socket bluetooth gps .. anyone knows how to set it up properly to work with qpegps [ it works with zgps after rebooting, able to fix my current postion]

here is my setting qpegps , config> arug -> -p /dev/rfcomm1 localhost port 2947
running qpegps 0.9.2.1 pre and the data status window, it says gpsd ??? .. gps ??? Mp GMT signal received

I already did the following

modify and add the following to rfcomm.conf ( already have rfcomm0 for nokia 6230)
rfcomm1 {
# Automatically bind the device at startup
bind yes;
# Bluetooth address of the device - get from 'hcitool scan'
device xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx;
# RFCOMM channel for the connection
channel 1;
# Description of the connection
comment "Socket GPS";
}

both hciconfig and sdptool browse. returns good status of bluetooth cf card and found the network address of bluetooth gps... but i just cannot get them connected or set them up properly in qpegps

Sounds like gpsd isn't starting properly.

Try starting gpsd from the commandline "gpsd -p /dev/rfcomm1 -s <baudrate>" then "telnet localhost 2947" to test. If that works then your qpegps configuration is broken. Since you have zgps working, use whatever baudrate it's set at for the -s option above.

My gpsd line in the qpegps config is "-p /dev/rfcomm0 -s 38400"; the localhost and 2974 go in different fields. Haven't had any problems at all.

A quick reply:

Here's a shot of the Z running GPSDrive under Xqt/Debian. Hatchetman set me straight on how to set up the tty in the chrooted Debian environment so that gpsd would see the GPS on /dev/ttyS3- see here.

So now I chroot and launch gpsd inside the debroot environment. I have also installed mysql for logging wireless APs, again this was done inside the debian chroot. Now that mysql and the GPSDrive gpsd are running I can exit back out of the chroot and launch kismet- woohoo, GPS shows up across the bottom!

Lastly, launching the X/qt and chrooting back into Debian, GPSDrive can be run which will automatically talk to Kismet, gpsd, and MySQL to log any APs you see. The screenshot below shows the stock map (haven't got around to downloading the ones for my area) and some APs I ran across ont eh way home. WooHoo!

freshroastedpeanut ,

Please do me a HUGE favor and when you get a local map setup please give us a screenshot so we can see what it looks like at street level in an urban environment. Also is the map zoomable in GPSDrive? If it proves useful I'm finally going to have to quit shying away from Debian/xqt and make the plunge.

As always thanks a bunch,

Hi Ken, Neuroshock,

Sorry I can't currently post piccies - "borrowing" wifi whilst on vacation, but the program is just like Ken posted. GPSdrive takes gif images from expedia and you can download at many different scales to get the detail level you need. The automatic wifi point logging and mysql waypoint management are really sweet. The only thing lacking is good autorouting- it will even use festival to speak directions to you, although I don't know how well that works on an already taxed Z.

Cheers all!

JJ

I just got Haicom 3033 GPS receiver and was trying to setup GPSDrive. According to readme, I need:
GTK-+2.3 (xqt feed)
pango (xqt feed)
atk (xqt feed)
pcre (??)
xdevel (??)
gettext (??)
libcrypt (??)
glibc (has two in xqt feed)

Where can I find some of those packages? Is there a good instructions about setup GPSDrive?

I use a Fortuna U2 USB GPS running on my 6000L

I got a 5-pin USB mini to USB adaptor but had to file away a little of the adaptor to get it to fit
(www.maplin.co.uk Part No A80AH USB AF/Mini USB 5PM)

The U2 needs the pl2303.o kernel module - I had to compile this myself.
