I am new to SPIN and I am having difficulty getting connected to the GPS by parallax.

Anyone have any code for this?

I know several customers have worked towards this, but I don't know if any have completed it. There is an object in the object exchange which interfaces with GPS ( http://obex.parallax.com/objects/225/ˇ), it's not our GPS module, but the serial communication is pretty much standardized so you may have luck with it.

Thanks. Actually, I found a smart mode version on this forum here and it works pretty well.

JTP,

Wow, that's perfect. The author should post that in the object exchange.

Thank you very much!!!

Do you have the "Calendar" object that is called on?




Cal : "Calendar"

These files reaaally need to be in the obex. Is Dr. Boone around to put them up?

Also in the main object, the documentations says to use P0 for serial io but down in the code it is set to 7. This needs to be corrected before it is posted and probably should be set to a constant.

Thanks Dr. Boone for the code - its saved me a day or so when hours are in short supply!

The GPS_SmartMode's complete set of files is posted all together in this thread, by Dr. Gary Boone: http://forums.parallax.com/forums/default.aspx?f=25&m=195562

It is very easy to use.

Good Luck,
Kevin

Wow. I just hooked up the Parallax GPS to a Propeller for my first time, and set up that smart mode object with some code to read it and display it on an LCD. Works perfectly.

I'm so impressed by all of this. It's so easy to get the Propeller to do interesting things.
