  • Alternative GPS Solution for OEM or ext. GPS antenna

    Hi Guys

    I had an idea to replace my GPS Demoboard, because i like to try a smaller solution.
    And it is easy possible to increase the gps signal rate.

    first i replaced the small external gps antenna by a adapter cable, to connect an other ext. GPS antenna.
    after than i connected a usb to serial with the new gps board:
    +5V -> VCC
    GND -> GND
    TX -> RX
    RX -> TX

    I think it is also possible to connect a Bluetooth Serial Device.
    Good Result after first Test at Home :-)

      radioproblem exist any more
      maybe i have to put then board inside an iron case.

      don't tested the time. i think it's depended of used antenna.
      the boards has a backup battery, too.

        I have over 50 of those dev boards in service just in a plastic project case. No problems at all with noise or interference the trucks they are in have a range of radios from am/fm/xm/cb and I have a separate gsm/gps/satellite tracker in there. Have you tried looking at other sources by chance? Just a thought SNO

          Yes, i think it's a problem of my car installed radio antenna.
          but i don't have an other car to test with other result.

              @harryberlin

              I just build a CarPC for my Volvo XC90.
              Some parts I have found solutions, so to control the fronend I use the BWM iDrive cntroller as a HID Device.
              No I'm searching for a possibility to use the buildin GPS antenna of the car. It looks like that would be possible with
              the items you post above. Do I need some other items or only this 3 items? And will TMC work?

              thanks

                hi

                if your car istalled gps antenna is a usual gps antenna, you can connect with the neo board.
                you should find out wich plug you need to connect the antenna.

                tmc is not included. it's just a gps device.
