I want to use the GPRMC-Line which looks fine after all the "ÿ" are filtered out:

Since the GPS-Output has this stupid extra-characters, the tinyGPS-Library dosen't work with it :(

What would be a good way to fix this ?
I already filtered the incoming characters from the serial-connection, but then i fail on the task of doing tinyGPS's job...

That y umlaut is most likely the way your serial monitor renders 255 (-1). It's what the serial read command returns when there is nothing to read. Use serial.available to check that there is actually something to read before you do so.

Thanks a lot wildbill.
Now all the "ÿ" are gone  :)
