GPS NMEA Input Command to trigger GPS unit
Posted on 2004-08-11
I have written a bespoke software application to monitor a Leadtek GPS 9532 mouse receiver.
Before I can use my software I must first initialise the GPS unit with Winfast Navigator (the software suppied with the GPS unit).
Once the GPS has been initialised with Winfast Navigator, I can then shut Winfast Navigator down and launch my own software.
I only need to load Winfast Navigator each time I power up the GPS unit.
Whilst most GPS units blindly output the NMEA data, it appears that this Leadtek unit requires an input message to be sent to it before it will output any data.
Can someone please identify what this input message is - its driving me mad.
Regards in advance
