GPS + WIP Commands


#1

Hi! I’m new in this forum.

I use a Fastrack Supreme 10 with IESM-GPS+USB+IO, and i want to use a GPS application that use WIP commands.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks


#2

Any GPS application?

Any WIP commands?

Would you care to be a little less vague?


#3

Sorry, but i’ve tried all GPS samples and none use WIP commands.

Nobody could ever provide an exhaustive set of samples for all possible combinations!

That would be a (virtually) infinite set!

The key to software development is to be Modular:

WIP is entirely irrelevant to the GPS part - once you have got the data from the GPS unit, it makes absolutely no difference whatsoever to the GPS part what you do with that data;

Similarly, GPS is entirely irrelevant to the WIP part; WIP is about IP connections, and transferring data over them - it makes absolutely no difference whatsoever to the WIP part where that data came from, or the nature of the data, or what you do with that data

See: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3170&p=11784&hilit=ftp+irrelevant#p11784
And: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=3359&p=12657&hilit=ftp+irrelevant#p12657
etc, …

So, proceed as follows:

  1. Make a simple GPS application - the GPS samples will help you with that;
  2. Make a simple WIP application - the WIP samples will help you with that;
  3. Use what you learn to integrate the two into a GPS+WIP application
