  • Other softwares for GPS receivers for PC ===>

    Hello again,

    I bought the HOLUX GM-210-USB GPS Receiver,

    I'd like to ask for free softwares that I can use with the GPS receiver on my PC.

    I heard about possibility to hear radio channels from all over the world using the GPS..... for example....


    thanks for replying,

    Heh! That must have been the guy selling sand to the Arabs!

    Works out your location, speed, heading, etc. with appropiate software but that's about all

      are you sure ? no other possibilities at all ?!

      what free software do you recommend for navigation ? this GPS comes with no software...

      Thanks.....

        www.gpss.co.uk gives free licenses to individuals, you need to add your own maps though.

          Oh forgot to mention that the Holux web site has a fair bit of test software and protocol manuals on their website if you want to develop you own software

            I dont really understand how does the gpss works, but I will see when Ill connect the GPS.

              the usb gps will probably show itself as a serial port. GPSS is a pain to use, it doesn't support vector maps (used for navigation and finding addresses) it just shows your position on a map. You need to get 800x600 or 640x480 map pictures and know the lat/long of the bottom left and top right corners of the map.

              I'm currently trying to make some maps to test with it and it seems long winded but quite straightforward (once you've worked out the instructions!)
