issues replacing GE863-GPS with a GE864 GPS

One thought on “issues replacing GE863-GPS with a GE864 GPS

  1. We are replacing GE863GPS with a GE864GPS but we are having troubles understanding how to replicate our application in GE864GPS

     

    Let me explain:

    ISSUE #1

    In GE863GPS we programmed an app in python that runs everytime the module resets. In our python app we are using GPS data so we connected as follows:

    SIRF Binary (GPS serial port A) connected to ASC1<– to enable GSM Module and python to control GPS

    NMEA (GPS serial port B) connected to an external "microcontroller A"<— to have NMEA data in "microcontroller A"

     

    In our python app we use the GPS data to time stamp some data and send it to our server over GPRS

    In our python app we obtain data stored in a SD Card from microcontroller A using IIC.

    The microcontroller A need the NMEA data to time stamp the data stored in a SD Card.

     

    So, as you see we need the NMEA GPS info available in Python and in a Serial Port.

     

    GE864GPS doesnt have a "GPS serial port B", so the question is this:

    How could we get the GE864GPS to send NMEA sentences to an external microcontroller and at the same time have GPS available in python?

     

    Best Regards
