  • GPS module + Ethernet (LAN) Is it possible?

    Hi.

    Anybody that have any idea how to make a GPS sender with Ethernet instead of GSM module? I think the cost will be much lower since I already have regular internet in my car(3G Router with Ethernet). I know it's possible to attach a GPS receiver to my computer in the car, but I don't what the computer running all the time. So I what to make a GPS sender that is connected to the Internet(Ethernet port on the router) in the car.

    Thanks in advance

    The company I work for makes some GPS chips that get used in networking devices. However the chips are used to provide precise GPS timing rater than positioning.

    For a consumer hack together solution I would suggest you source a linux based router (with usb port or one that can be hacked to have usb - http://www.engadget.com/2007/04/23/a...-based-router/). Then it's a matter of flashing a compatible linux build to the router that supports a USB GPS receiver and has been programed where to send or store the data.

            Ok, wait - did you say you have a wireless router that is sharing the usb gps antenna wirelessly?
            is there a forum where i can find more about this?

            thanks.
