15713OT3m NMEA passthrough
- Jul 3, 2013Good news! The OT3m NMEA pass-through is working. Scott released new
firmware today (7/3/2013). Thanks Scott!
I am using the USB port which is fixed at 9600. (At least I don't see a way
to change it.)
GPS on Port A works at 4800. I will try Port B later since I have a Port A/B
splitter and would rather connect the GPS to B.
My APRSIS32 OT3m port shows the NMEA data. I did not look at the NMEA log
yet. It was a quick test.
Only RMC and GGA are passed through. The satellite indicators at the bottom
of APRSISCE/32 won't have data since I think that relies on the GSV sentence
which has that data. I am going to miss that.
This now allows me to remove my FTDI 4-port serial adapter and only have one
cable to the OT3m and one on to the GPS. I am liking it!
Thanks Scott and Lynn for adding this feature to the OT3m and APRSISCE/32!
