  1. Re: johngb has just uploaded Proton Studio Update 1.0.2.0!

    John,

    I've just noticed that on 64-bit version of the latest update, the version number appears as 1.0.1.12. Minor "drop off" ?

    Regards,

    Bob

    Re: Valid time in NMEA sentance

    @David - My initial surprise at Simon's quality fix of 2 was because I had forgotten that augmentation systems such as WAAS and EGNOS are a form of DGPS. I was thinking more in terms of what you...

    Re: Valid time in NMEA sentance

    Looks a nice module. As you say, it supports EGNOS etc so that will give you DGPS and a quality rating of 2.

    Thanks for the info.

    Re: Valid time in NMEA sentance

    I'm intrigued that you get a fix quality of 2. Is your GPS unit capable or receiving WAAS/EGNOS transmissions?

    Re: Valid time in NMEA sentance

    Interesting find George. So using your example we take a UTC of 8:30:00 and add 1 second to it. On the occurrence of the rising edge of the next PPS signal we can load an RTC with the correct time...

    After I think John. My reading is that you use the pulse to sync the time data extracted from the previous NMEA sentence. I suspect, but don't know for sure, that the data in the NMEA sentence only...

    Re: Valid time in NMEA sentance

    All good points John. I found this "on the net".



    Many of these GPS modules have a 1PPS output.

    Re: Valid time in NMEA sentance

    This is the way to go I think Simon.

    With these simple modules, I don't think you can get a fix quality better than 1. Fix quality is a measure of the positional accuracy available and numbers...

    Re: Valid time in NMEA sentance

    I would have thought that if the location is valid, then the time will also be correct. A 2d fix would give you a valid time. I would think that with no fix, things could get a bit random. Personally...

    [SOLVED !] Re: How to read 8-bit from 10-bit port?

    Well assuming you want the lower 8 bits - i.e. bits 0 - 7 Then you could do something like...


    VAR2 = VAR1 & $0F


    or


    VAR2 = VAR1.Byte0

    Re: Why ADC does not work in PIC18F4520

    HI, I see that in your fuse settings you have the extended instruction set (xint) turned on. I seem to recall that this can cause problems. Try turning it off.
