Adafruit Ultimate GPS on the Raspberry Pi @ The Adafruit Learning System.

How easy is it to get your Raspberry Pi eavesdropping on satellites 20,000 km up in the sky? Wonderfully easy thanks to Linux, and affordable thanks to Adafruit’s Ultimate GPS Breakout!

This quick learning guide will show you everything you need to do to add position tracking to your Pi project using the open source GPS daemon ‘gpsd’ and an inexpensive USB to TTL adapter cable.

  1. I am going to try this now. I had already written this in python to directly read serial from UART and parse the NMEA sentences and first send to webservice and now sends UDP packet to a server for processing. It hits the processor hard and going to see if GPSD is nicer to the processor so that other things can run.

    If anyone wants the python code its on bitbucket, https://bitbucket.org/dnetman99/gpstrackerpi
    This is the webservice code and I will upload the UDP packet code tonight.

    If I port to GPSD, I will upload that as well.

    Thanks for the great work adafruit!!!!

  2. Currently using this as a product to live plot to my website. This gps works awesome!!!
