How to use ND-105C, ND-100S & BU-353-S4 on Android
« on: January 22, 2015, 08:03:17 pm »

Hello All,

Thank you for contacting USGlobalSat Customer Care. 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. Also, your device will require "USB Host Mode" support for the GPS to function.

You'll first 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

To use your USB GPS Receiver on Android, you'll need our PL2303 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. Please refer to the app description for instructions.

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

Once you setup the GPSInfo app, any app that uses GPS will now start using the external GPS for GPS data.

If you have any questions regarding "USB Host Mode", you can refer to this link: https://android.stackexchange.com/questions/36887/how-can-i-determine-if-my-device-has-usb-host-mode-otg-support

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

USB GPS on Android is only for Android 3.1 and above.

Android 2.3.7 does not support "USB Host Mode", which is required for using a USB GPS on your Android device.
