    Mapping GPS Data

    Hello,

    I’ve got an Ipaq H2210 and Socket BT GPS receiver and want to save data as to where I’ve been and then import this into a mapping program such as MapPoint. I also want this to show speed.

    The software that came with the Socket saves info in this format:-

    $GPGGA 130329.045 5241.8772 N 120.5954 W 1 7 1.5 230.5 M 47.6 M 0 0000*6F
    $GPGSA A 3 13 16 24 4 1 10 2 2.5 1.5 2.0*36
    $GPGSV 3 1 10 13 65 66 42 24 56 268 36 4 45 198 34 27 45 157 25*73
    $GPGSV 3 2 10 1 32 64 41 8 21 178 0 10 20 293 39 2 15 60 36*7F
    $GPGSV 3 3 10 16 11 38 37 6 6 338 40*7C
    $GPRMC 130329.045 A 5241.8772 N 120.5954 W 0.110575 110703 *01
    $GPGGA 130330.045 5241.8771 N 120.5952 W 1 7 1.5 229.7 M 47.6 M 0 0000*68
    $GPGSA A 3 13 16 24 4 1 10 2 2.5 1.5 2.0*36
    $GPGSV 3 1 10 13 65 66 42 24 56 268 35 4 45 198 35 27 45 157 23*77
    $GPGSV 3 2 10 1 32 64 41 8 21 178 0 10 20 293 39 2 15 60 36*7F

    Which I cannot import into MapPoint of get lat / long / speed from.



    Can anyone help?


    Follow on .......

    I now understand that (5241.8772 N 120.5954 W) is the lat/long bit but MapPoint will only import this in WGS84 standard (?) which is 52.697265 -1.342208. There must be some simple calculation. I've also linked the Socket device to the PC and the direct data stream coming from it, is the same as the file i posted.

    i have a similar output from a GPS unit that i'm writing (ahem, try attempting ) a tracking package for. What i'm doing is separating each section to a field in an array. For getting the GPS data correct, with my unit all i do is move my decimal place of the string 7 places left (i.e divide it by 1,000,000) and it returns the right position, then an if statement that says if the value of lat is E thenits a positive value and W is negative Hope this is of some use, but prolly not if you're not planning on wrinting something to do this yourself.

    As for the speed, on my input stream, the speed is the field tot he left of the heading, however, if your has the same format, your speed is a constant 1.5 units so hmmmmmmm.....

    This looks like a restricted use of MapPoint. The license says:

    Re: Mapping GPS Data

    Hi,

    You need to calculate the latitude and longitude from out of this nmea0183 data. the format is: ddmm.ffff for latitude, and for longitude: dddmm.ffff

    where:
    (d)dd = degrees
    mm = minutes
    ffff = fractions of the minute

    and MP needs degrees as a floating point number

    I suggest you look for and download RouteConverter and see if the nmea output will take your GPS units data and convert it into something that you can use. it is free, after all, so the cost of the try is very low <grin>
