I need to connect a recent Garmin GPS (USB interface) to a BX-24 so I
get decode the NMEA sentences coming from the GPS.
I can do that without any problems with older GPS equi...

I would like to use the BasicX24 to control GPS data stream. I know
that GPS module outputs the data in a stream of bits. I am trying to
take the input from the G...

I'm looking for a BasicX interface to a GPS unit (Gamin etrex venture)
to read the NMEA codes. My understanding is that there are various
NMEA 0183 sentences tha...

You should just be able to talk to it using a serial connection. I think
it's 4800 baud.
I have one of the Parallax GPS units and there are two modes. The normal
mode just send...

Has anyone tried interfacing a Sirf format GPS unit to a BX-24 yet?
NMEA is pretty straight foward. The GPS unit I have is a Ublox OEM
board. This thing is soooo ...

In my effort to get a sirf protocol GPS unit to interface with a BX-
24, I need to send a 15 bit byte at 19,200 baud to the GPS unit. The
byte is part if a command...

Just a thought- you might want to try a GPS receiver to get an
accurate speedo indication. Granted, it's a little harder coding an
odometer, but it can be done. T...
