Can anyone recommend a windows mobile GPS app
with good "make a note of
this position" functionality. Noting down lat and log on a bit of paper
just seems wrong.
On a similar note, can anyone recommend a GPS which will talk to OSX
over wifi, bluetooth or usb and give me access to the raw NMEA
datastream through a standard character device as well as having
nifty OS X apps bundled with it?
There are no Nifty OS X apps bundled, but the pretec BlueGPS/Royaltek
RBT-3000 has treated me extremely well in this regard. If you don't want
logging at all (can only get the logs in Windows or Linux) then you
might look for one of their other (cheaper) non-logging products, like
the mini Xtreme: http://www.royaltek.com/index.php/content/view/83/62/
which I found online for $100.
Basically, it lets you 'cat /dev/cu.BlueGPS' and get the raw nmea data.
Anything that can talk to raw nmea over a serial device will work fine
with it. However, GPS software for mac is extremely limited.
This is why I just write code on my phone that does it instead :)
