BU-353, BU-353-S4, & ND-100S on Android Tablets/Phones.
« on: March 19, 2013, 01:59:20 pm »

Android has the USB drivers for our GPS Receivers built-in it's Linux kernel (PL2303), and if your device is running Honeycomb and above (Android 3.1 ~ Android 6.0+), it should work.

To use your USB GPS Receiver on Android, you'll need the GPSInfo app to make your Android device use the external GPS, instead of the internal GPS. You can download the GPSInfo app from here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.globalsat.android.gps.pl2303.provider&hl=en

If the GPSInfo doesn't detect the GPS, then please try using this app instead: https://www.dropbox.com/s/030r1yu5iqkss1b/UsbGPS4Honeycomb_MR1_alpha.apk?dl=0

Then you'll need to enable Mock Locations in the Developer Settings menu. Most devices have Developer Settings hidden, so you'll need to follow this video on how to show Developer Settings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mp07dPusJNA

Then you just plug in the GPS, and you should get a pop up that the GPS was detected, then you click Start GPS and you're set.

Any app that uses GPS will now start using the external GPS for GPS data.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

Hello,
I am trying to run your globalsat USB on a Nexus 7 (running Android 5.1.1) I have installed the USBGPS4DROID , and enabled 'mock locations.
I have not yet been able to get the tablet to 'discover' the satnav. Is there something else I should do? I have connected it  to the tablet via a powered USB hub.
It would be great to have a detailed installation instruction.

Alternatively, if you can't help, can you send me a link to 'Herbert' who made the app, as presumably he'll be able to advise. I cannot find a way of contacting him (I've tried github, xdadevelopers forum and youtube).
Thanks, Robin
