Bad news is this is only on a winXP box running GPSGATE client ... as I'd like to do this in Linux with gpsd I have some work to do. I assume there is some way to use gpscat to get the lower level data but I haven't figured it out yet.
Steps done so far:
Does gpscat/gpsctl need to do something to convince the gps to
start spitting out data ? It seems to do it by default with gpsd.
gpspipe is outputing the same NMEA sentences I saw before, no
HCHDG so I assume that is because gpsd doesn't handle it yet.
Somehow I need to get to the raw data output that GPSGATE is able
to parse into HCHDG on winXP ... any thoughts on why I got a
python error with gpscat ? any incantation to start a Garmin
spitting its data ? Am I correct in assuming it will show up with
gpscat if it is coming out ?
Any help appreciated, thanks !
