In his project, Binu from avrprojects.info interfaces a ProGin SR-87 GPS module with an ATtiny2313 and 2×16 LCD to generate a running lat/long display. The device also will store one static location, and produce an audible alert each time that location is reached. (More locations could be provided for in code, but the project assumes […]
Krishna writes with a followup to his previous post, Using Bus Pirate to interface a MT3318 GPS receiver: …the idea is to change the settings of the GPS module so that we need not modify Bus Pirate settings each time we connect it to the PC. NMEA stands for National Marine Electronics Association. When you […]
Here’s a twist on the old practice of geocaching: a Reverse Geocaching Puzzle Box! Alternet presents a puzzle box containing a geocache prize which only opens when it is in the correct geolocation. This fairly complex, novel project uses a PIC 18F*39 microcontroller (exact part not specified on schematic) interfaced with a 2×16 LCD to […]
Krishna used the Bus Pirate to interface a MT3318 GPS receiver. I have used the transparent UART mode of the Bus Pirate to directly access the serial data and send it to other third party softwares to show my location on google maps. Get your own handy Bus Pirate for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also […]
The tiny TK-1315LA GPS tracks up to 20 satellites, and runs from battery-friendly 3.3volts. Tayken demonstrates how to connect the Bus Pirate and get NMEA position data from the device.
Ril3y shows how to use a FSA03 GPS with the Bus Pirate: I have a few projects that I would like to include GPS data in, in the near future. So I went ahead and picked up a nice ublox based GPS. You can get it here: I wanted to used it right away. So […]
