Re: MobileGPS

Well this wasn't due to the radios RF this was as soon as I powered the unit on, it was very odd and I never quite figured it out. The radio put out a birdie, I didn't have a RF counter that went high enough at the time, but yea, same thing. I even remember posting about it on a popular GPS board w...

Re: MobileGPS

I had an old President Lincoln 10m radio in a truck that when I turned it on it would knock out my GPS signal on a handheld unit mounted on the dash, I ended up getting a higher gain external antenna. After a while the 10m just quit transmitting completely, I never knew what was causing it but mayb...

Re: MobileGPS

So I had some free time and dug out a GPS/compass unit for one of my fathers autonomous drone flight controllers, and I was able to configure it to spit out the NMEA messages, I also had it spitting out at a rate of 10hz, and 115200 baud just for funzies. They use the Ublox 6, 7 and 8 chips on most...

Re: MobileGPS

Looks like MobileGPS is only looking for the NMEA sentences GGA and RMC everything else is ignored. You might need to plug that into the Ublox u-center and configure it and then confirm that yours is sending those NMEA messages. Its been a while since I've tinkered with a Ublox but I might see if I...

Re: Unable to upgrade to 4.1.2

3.4.17 is the latest you'll get for the 3.x.x You'll need to burn a new image in the 4.x.x to upgrade to the latest. 4.x.x was when the O/S changed.

Re: MobileGPS

Doesn't seem to like my U-blox7. Unless I didn't do something I'm supposed to. It shows up in LSUSB, but when I reboot after enabling mobilegps. I don't see anything. Checked for the mobilegps file in etc/ and it was nonexistent.

Re: USB boot on Pi-zero w

Pi-star IS Raspbian. It just has some applications, scripts and tweaks added to the base lite image (and some applications removed). But it is just Raspbian. Ok, Raspian. So, the question still is: Can we have USB-ETH converter attached to use LAN ? If so, Any aditional packet needs to be installed...

Is the Pi Zero capable (in terms of memory and processing power) of supporting 4.1x or would it be advisable to stay with 3.14?
I run 4.1.0 RC7 on 2 pi0s with no issues what so ever.
