Hi people, i really need some help!
I am a portuguese student, and i am making a final project which is about personal services for GPS.
Basicly i want to connect a Garmin eTrex GPS unit to my laptop. I use a proper cable to do that and the software that i am using is the OziExplorer
which allow me to extract some info from the GPS like (waypoints, tracks or routes). The problem is to send that information (the one from the GPS)
to a database in my laptop (Mysql). In other words, which do you think is the best way to make this connection?
1 - Make a program that could read the data from the GPS unit and that could send that data to my database (filling the tables and fields in DB)
2 - or, like i am doing now, using a software like the Oziexplorer and collect trought that software the wanted information to put in the database,
but how can i make that connection (software -> database) and which software should i use ?? Oziexplorer ??
Can anyone help me with that connection
