    That looks like a very cool device. I don't think it will help me with my current issue, but definitely will be a good addition later on for non-GPS devices like my UDOO board. I'll probably hook it up to the Arduino, and pass the NMEA data up to the Android to parse, then using the mock location provider pass it on to maps and my nav stuff.

    Very interesting project eric_f. I started my own Android FE too and only just found this post. I'll give it a try and adopt it instead of rollin my own.

    Regarding the GPS module. I'd recommend SKG16B, as previously mentioned. I just got mine last week and it's very versatile. It works as a COM device if plugged via USB or over bluetooth. I've dumped the linux details here: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...ml#post1504284. Let me know if you need more details

    Wondering how do you plan to integrate radio into the front end I see it listed but don't know how to set it up or what sort of radio receiver it supports. Do you plan for it to be a front end to sdr radio?

    As far as GPS goes I just bought a bu-353 s4 apparently works with my odroid board. Really looking forward to getting it all installed.

    definitely works, use that combo daily. Just make sure to download the companion app and run it on start via Tasker or Autostarts

    @ eric_f. This app looks terrific! Hoping you consider implementing the Monkeyboard radio. Let us know if we can help in that capacity.

    @bluc I forgot the radio code was in there. It's not ready for anybody but me at the moment. Basically what I'm currently doing is using this FM receiver from sparkfun and it's just sending it commands.

    @Sonicxtacy02 I've never heard of the Moneyboard Radio until now. It looks like an interesting device. I would not be opposed to working with one.

    As for my GPS issues. They seem to have worked them self out. Maybe an update via the Play Store? Whatever the issue was it seems to be working again. Either way, I'll likely get a new N7 in the near future for dev work.
    But for in car, that receiver looks like just what I need. I'll either use their app, or maybe write my own code to do the same thing. Either way that's a nice unit. Thanks.

    Nice project... I haven't been on the site in a while, so glad to see new and interesting design work.

    Have you done any further work on a CAN interface yet? I'm talking hardwired, not looking for bluetooth options. CAN is getting very simple to integrate into now. There is some pretty cool modules showing up as of lately.

    Cheers
