Well, I've been
trying to get my new GPS dongle working with APRSIS32 and am
still stuck. I initially did not have the "Enables | NMEA"
part going, but once I enabled that the screen displayed the
expected elements: location and heading boxes, list of
anticipated satellites, etc.
Where I'm stuck
now is that the GPS data doesn't seem to be "getting into" the
program. When i use the USB dongle with the included testing
and config program (U-Center 8.26) I can get a position fix,
see which satellites are being received, and so forth. So I
know Windows 10 is able to work with the dongle.
is a virtual com port driver, which creates a COM6 for the GPS
dongle. I double- and triple-checked the port configuration in
APRSIS32 against what shows up in Windows Device Manager
(COM#, Baud, Parity, Data Bits, and Stop Bits). Everything
receiver is very configurable. My hypothesis is that the
receiver is sending data in a protocol that the U-Center 8.26
program can decipher, but which APRSIS32 cannot. I think I
have also found where I can flash the configuration to the
receiver to change how it communicates.
My question is,
what must APRSIS32 receive in order to read the data properly?
It looks like there are multiple versions if the NMEA
protocol. Which one should I tell the receiver to use? Are
there any other settings I should look for in the
