Hi there, I bought a GPS module, plus a 433 Mhz RF Module from Parallax. Exactly the ones in the following pages:
Only when they arrived did I noticed that there is no spin code examples of their operation. I also have a Propeller Professional Development Board Rev A, everything is connected has it should, but I have no clue. It seams that the basic stamp code that they have as example depends a lot on serout and serin.. well this is not available in spin, and honestly I've tried the BS2SPIN library but it gets even more complicated.
Can anyone help me and teach me how to write a simple program to interface with the GPS antenna that does the following.
SEND a request to de Sio port, currently 24 in my development board.
LISTEN for a response from the Sio port since this component seams to work tx and rx on the same port.
STORE the response in a string so that it can then be treated and read by the user (me in this case)
As far has the 433 RF module... I have no clue on how this works... really, they forgot about spin developers. I'm new to this type of coding and parallax has no documentation, asides from the dimension of the PCB, the power consumption. I have no clue on how to simply send "test" from A to B and get that same string in B for processing!
Please help me or I will be stuck on this for a long long time... since I do a search on OBEX for GPS and I get 3 entries or so... all of them for discontinued hardware or basic stamp!
