  • Help decoding some GPS data

    Hiya

    I have a database of some locations in a format I cannot understand. The following location is somewhere in the centre of the UK and it should somehow translate to GPS coords - I just can't work it out.

    000E3C7A0000F5061100


    Any ideas?

      I might be Don't think I'm doing anything wrong though, bought the GPS camera detector and only trying to decode the XML file it downloads from the net - not planning to distribute it so they can't complain really.

      Er, not sure. It's a personal one I added somewhere in Birmingham. I could add a location though and then get the real coords if it helps.

        I dont think it contains the altitude info.

        I think the best way is to create more samples and see how the HEX code changes.

        The real problem it..it may be scrambled.

          I'll give that a go, i'll get 3 or 4 samples close together that I know the actual location and see if I can find any correlation etc.

          I've also converted it to ascii from hex and it doesn't make any sense which is quite annoying was hoping I had missed something obvious
