Re: GPS Receiver - Problem
This particular project can be a bit complex and is very much dependent upon the specific module being used; however, there are some users who have attempted this already and have documented the process. For instance, there is a thread on the VEX forums
that has several great resources you may want to look through. Also, you will need to use the datasheet from the specific GPS sensor (such as this one
) to determine which pins control the sensor itself, and connect it to the Cortex accordingly. The best thing I can suggest to do is to read through the links in the VEX forum thread and to check out the UARTPortTest sample program (under the 'Advanced' folder in Cortex's section of the ROBOTC sample programs).
Once you have done that, try to modify the sample code to look for the values used in the NMEA standard (I believe the $ symbol denotes the start of the gps data) and post the modified code using the [code] tags for us to take a look at.
