Hello,

I'm new to GPS and to this forum.

I needed to buy a GPS receiver for agricultural guidance, and the BU-353 was a recommended product, and got good reviews over the internet. I bought one online from a seller here in the UK.

The receiver works very well, but the 1hz update on it is just too slow, you can drive a long way off course in a second! At the time of buying I wasn't aware of refresh rates or what they meant.

Since Ive bought my BU-353, I have found the 5hz version for sale on here. Is there a way that I can configure my 1hz version to a 5hz update rate? They both use the same sirf star IV chip, so surely its only a software difference. Ive searched the internet but cant find much info on changing the update rate on sirf chips. If it is not possible, is there any way I can swap my 1hz version in for a 5hz?

Thanks for your time.

Sam

Hi,

Device: USGlobalSat BU-353S4

Hardware:  MacPro
Operating system: OSX 10.8.5
Programming Language: C

Mac OSX USB Driver: Version 1.5.1
GPSUtility: Version 2.10

I am working on an application to read the NMEA data from the device.

When I run the GPSUtility it obtains a fix of my current position and
the NMEA data scrolls by in the left panel.  It appears that the device
is working properly and the software driver is installed.

If I quit the GPSUtility and start my application, it reads and displays
the NMEA data.

If I run my application before running the GPSUtility it doesn't read or
display the NMEA data.

I suspect that the problem is in initializing the device.  Per the FAQ,
I have tried sending the following NMEA sentences.

4800/8/N/1 - 4800/8/N/1 - $PSRF100,1,4800,8,1,0*0E
Warm Start - $PSRF101,0,0,0,0,0,0,12,2*16
Enable WAAS/EGNOS - $PSRF151,01*0F
Enable GGA Output 1sec - $PSRF103,0,0,1,1*25
Enable GLL Output 1sec - $PSRF103,1,0,1,1*24
Enable GSA Output 5sec - $PSRF103,2,0,5,1*23

I write the sentences to the device with the checksum followed by <CR><LF>.

I check the return code after writing to the device and there is no error.

Am I missing something?  Are there any additional initialization sentences
that I should be using?

Sincerely,

SyBB

After running several Virus detection programs which showed registry problems the TG problem is solved.

Best regards

Hi I was wondering if I could obtain the documentation on the data protocol for the GB-580 when downloading tracks over the usb/virtual serial port.  I'm writing a python script that can interface with the device, download tracks and store them in any number of formats.  This will hopefully become more portable between different OS'es (i.e. linux, mac, or windows), etc.  I have a pretty good idea of how this works and can work backwards somewhat, but having the specs will save me some time for one, but more importantly it will allow me be more thorough in supporting all the features.

Thanks.

Hi everybody.
I have just purchased an A-Rival SQ-100 and I'm trying to use Training Gym Pro (v 1.8.0).
I can't make TGP show Google Maps or Google Earth on the right side panel.
When I click on "Main/show on google map",  I get the following message "Please download or select Track Record(s) before viewing in Google??Map". I can't find Track Record anywhere.
Thanks for you help.

When I run the Training Gym Pro (V 1.8.0) a script error window comes up. The error indication came suddently. The TGP worked perfect before.
I can run the program but no maps screen comes up.
The error window says (i translated it from german to english):

In the script of this page a failure occured.
Line: 2
Sign: 279
Failure: The display properties were not found. Unvalid argument.
Code: 0
URL:

Than it asks if one would like to perform the scripts on this page.


Possible answer Yes or No.
 
I have no idea what to do.

I deinstalled the TGP already, installed it again, no change.
It does't matter if I use the Internet Expl. or the M. Firefox as a the Standard Browser.

What can I do.

Regards

Hello All,

This for all the new buyers of the newest ND-105C. This is to help you setup your device on your Android tablet or laptop. First when working with an Android smartphone you'll need to activate or enable your mock locations. You can do this by going to your "settings" and selecting "about device" or "About phone" and tapping on the "Build number" or "build model".
That will activate or enable your "developer options" where you can "enable mock locations".
Please note: If your device or smart phone doesn't have USB host function, the ND-105 will not work with your device (Laptop, tablet or computer) or smartphone. USB host is when you plug the ND-105C in, that the ND-105C can draw power from the USB port. Most newer devices and smartphones have this feature.

After you enable your "mock locations" you can download the Android application here: http://www.usglobalsat.com/store/download/740/GlobalSatPL2303GpsInfo.zip
This is our USGlobalSat GPSinfo application for the ND-105C. Once you download the application it will see the device once it is plugged into your computer or smartphone.

For questions or problems please contact the tech support team at support@usglobalsat.com and one of the techs will be happy to help you. Thank you.
