10hz gps -> adruino -> bluetooth -> phone

Postby MrBlah » Fri Apr 15, 2016 12:50 am

Anyone played with these 5-20hz gps shields? They do NMEA and most can do 20hz for less than 50 $


if I did not have about 25 arduino's and shields laying around here the cost probably gets close to the dual 160

At least when using the Android version - which allows a standard BT SPP connection, it should be no problem. Pair the Arduino BT with the smartphone. Feed the NMEA stream to the BT SPP connection established once you have added it to LapTimer's Sensor List (+BT ‣ select Arduino BT ‣ Select GPS).

For OBD, I received some requests for wired connections, but not for GPS. In case I extend the interface to wired connections for OBD, GPS will benefit from this too. They share the same implementation base. For now, you need to provide the NMEA stream through a BT SPP interface. The care you configure the GPS to 10Hz during initialization. LapTimer will not do this.
