Post Help with school project: GPS bot
Hi, im doing a project for my school and i decided to build a robot controlled by a Garmin eTrex Vista. it isn't going to be as complicated as you might think you see this is my first major science project and i wanted to go a little more advanced then the usual things people go with. Im in Junior year of high school and everybody is really exited about the project. I have everything done i have the robot assembled, the chassis is ready and the servos and everything is connected to the board. The thing is im a complete noob at this coding thing; sure i can code the basics but when it comes to something like coding the GPS coordinate that is way over my head. This is my set up

PCB Board
-Parallax Basic Stamp 2 Module
-2 Continuous Rotational servos for steering
-Basic Ping Sensor attached to a 180 degree rotational servo (for basic object avoidance)
-Powering it is a 9v and 6v battery pack.

You see i have the code from someone else who has done this, i found it while reading a robotics magazine but he was using relays instead of the servos i have and i don't understand how to translate the code for the relays to the servos. I have the code here PLEASE help if you can, please teach me how to change this code to fit my setup i have tried everything and i really want to do this. Really appreciate your help. Here's the code...

Well, I hate to tell you this, but you're on the wrong forum. We might be able to help you, but you will have much better luck at the Parallax Basic Stamp forum here:

http://forums.parallax.com/forums/default.aspx?f=5

You also might be able to get some help at the Servo Magazine forum, here:

Personally, I have some experience with basic stamps, and I've even use a propeller once in a while, but I mostly program in C. I imagine that most other experienced programmers who frequent this RobotC forum will be the same.

Oh, by the way, .bs2 files can be opened by any text editor (notepad, sublime text, notepad++, etc), you only need the Basic Stamp Editor to run the code.
