    iGuidance API

    Anyone know of any kind of iGuidance API or a way of manipulating it externally? I am currently using iGuidance in a car PC and am looking to use it to track weather balloons we will be launching with respect to our current position. What I would like to do is alter the coordinates of the current destination automatically as we receive GPS coordinates from the balloon.

    How are you getting the coords from the balloon?

    If a gps unit if it can send the whole GMPC string then send that to iGuidance (you will need to somehow simulate a GPS puck though)

    well I have the gps in the truck so that iguidance has my local position, and I receive the coordinates of the balloon via aprs over the serial port. Right now I have a perl script that intercepts those packets and then I can transform them and do what I want with them.

    I guess I'm not sure what you're thinking I might do if I were receiving GMPC strings. Is it possible to utilize 2 different GPSes or are you saying I should replace my local position GPS with the GPS coordinates received from the balloon? What I'm trying to do is have both so I can see where I am and where the balloon is in reference to my position.

    I thought you wanted to replace your current position with the balloons.


    Ok, maybe you need to have it as a POI that moves, interesting.
