      Not knowing which GPS you own; in the interim, you can build a splitter cable that sends data to your Open Tracker and the PC.
      The GPS will have a TX signal which will get connected to the receive inputs or each device. The ground also needs to be connected to each device fro the GPS. You don't need to worry about the RX line on the GPS for this purpose.
      Best regards,

      I'm setting up my GIS software to work as a mobile asset tracker. I have the Open Tracker sending NMEA data to the serial port (port B, with GPS on Port A) and that plots just the way it should. Now I'd like to have the software centre on its current position and record a tack log. To do that I need to have a stream of position data passed through the OT to the serial port.

      I'm not sure that the OT can even do this, so some advice would be appreciated. If it's not possible, then I'll request the GIS developer put an option on their GPS interface to take data from the serial port and GPS from another port. Of course, that arrangement would mean having the tracker pulling position data from one GPS puck, and the GIS software pulling from another puck, but if that's the way it needs to be, the so be it!
