Does any body have any sample robotc code for a program like Finding Einstein: Geocaching with dGPS?

This page seems to have code for box programming, so you can use it as a kind of Flowchart.

This page has a driver for RobotC and some sample programs, I'm not sure if they're what you're looking for though.

Somebody should have some robotc code using the compass and dgps for robot navigation from point A to point B. These sensors have been out for quite a long time and I can't find any good robotc code that has been posted. :-(

dGPS returns the compass heading as well as GPS coordinates. You shouldn't need a separate compass. :-) :)

True, though the dGPS compass reading is not a true compass reading. It can estimate your current compass angle based on gps coordinate readings, but a separate compass is far more accurate.

I've been working on a navigating robot, utilizing the dGPS and the Hi-Technic compass. Pretty much doing exactly as he describes.

I stand corrected.
