I need to be able to receive telemetry data (just GPS coordinates and a few others) in real time via Mission Planner and pass to another application I am currently working on,

does anyone have any tips as to how I would do this? Is it possible in Mission Planner? 

Would I have to write something to connect directly to the USB port and decode the mavlink stream?

Many Thanks,

I've tried opening the link, and when I saw this line on my PC:


what do those numbers mean? Because when I tried to convert it as ECEF to LLA, it doesn't show correct location information...

Can I get the lla (lat, lon, and alt) raw data from mission planner? Like the one shown on the HUD user items

depending on what you want

you could just use http gets

from this url

when mp is running.

or you could use the microdrone output format, using control-f > microdrone.

which is a clear text format

divide by 1e7 to get the number in lla
ie -68905466 / 1e7

i have the same question, thanks
