  • DrumBuffer and Destinator

    So I searched the forum and asked myself has anyone got this working yet I just cant seem to figure it out. Searched the forum for answers but couldn't find it. So if anyone could point me in the right direction.

    I want to rip the GPS data from destinator. Is this possible or do I have to connect to my gps myself and then pass the information into destinator ?

    With kind regards,

    excuse me what do you want to do exactly????
    getting GPS information - "NMEA data"(Longitude, Latitude, GPS sats locked, Speed, Elevation) is easy, this is provided by your GPS device by using RR for examp;le you can get variables with all of that..
    However getting info that require a map... ((ETA-ETR, current address, destination address etc..) require you offcourse to use a NAV program and a Map... however using Destinator 3 (which has an SDK) you can do that.. but using Destinator PN or Destinator 6 you can't as there is no SDK for that (for PN there is but it is locked)

      I want to get the current speed I am driving from destinator (im using the destinator 3 sdk). As far as I can see they only way to get the speed from destinator is to extract the gps data using the drumbuffer and them splitting the NMEA data to get the speed. But I cant find any info on how to use the drumbuffer.
