GPS MODULE

Tue Mar 21, 2017 2:55 pm

In the RPI book by W.Donat, he mentions a GPS module P6H071323 which I could not find anywhere.
Any help to get this or equivalent appreciated.

Never heard of that model, and neither has Google - the only link it came back with was your post!

There are several Pi HAT GPS boards, or you can use a USB GPS dongle. To a basic level (sending common NMEA strings with time and position) they're all the same.

This works like serial port but not sure it will be recognized by RPi.

Thanks Dave for reply.
Just wondering if I can hook it up with a (Android?) to get GPS info.

The Adafruit Ultimate GPS (Hat or breakout board) also has a 1pps pin, which can be used to synchronise a NTP server, should you wish to build one.
Not required in all use cases, but useful if you want one.

It has been my custom to use Xeyes

Yes, those work fine, appearing as a tty serial port on the Pi (ttyACM0 or ttyUSB0 - I forget which).

Android devices generally have their own GPS, so not sure what your aim is here, but yes it could be done using (e.g.) a bluetooth link between Pi and Android.

Thanks for the reply. I plan to use the Android phone to get its GPS coordinates so as to control a robot which has a RPI3. Any thoughts appreciated.

Still unsure what you're trying to achieve. Remember that a GPS position could be out by several metres.

Thanks. Yes, may be better to go with the GPS Module GTPA013? Any experience with it?

None at all. And even if I did, with the amount of information you've provided so far, I wouldn't be able to advise you anyway.
