Re: Help to program a Parallax GPS in the Basicx-24p

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 sends out NMEA lines that you can parse with the BX24. And a smart
mode, where you simply ask for the data you want. The smart mode however, is
somewhat slow in that it has to wait for the NMEA line to pass before it
responds.

Parallax supplies the code that runs on the GPS. You would need to download
their SX/B compiler and have a SX-Key to download a modified firmware. This
would be a bit advanced, but could be done.
