i wanna use the arduino duemilanove to retrieve and process the output from the mediatek 3329 gps.
but according to most code out there, i would need an arduino mega which has multiple serial ports to do it.
Is there anyway i can make this work out?
another question.. i just recently found out that the code i have been using (the example in the MTK_GPS lib) is over a year old. but im lost as to what code to and library to use now. All i really need is the output to look something like this: Location: Speed: Altitude: etc..
thanks in advance!
You could use SoftwareSerial http://arduino.cc/hu/Tutorial/SoftwareSerial
Rather than using an on-chip UART, it processes serial comms entirely in software, one bit at a time.
I followed the codes on there but it seems to give me outputs such as 196 28 0 192 193... etc.
it seems to interpret the NMEA output of the GPS into integers?
