Hi

I just uploaded the following code to my gps receiver <ftp://imall.iteadstudio.com/IM120417017_Arduino_GPS_shield/DS_IM120417017_ArduinoGPSshield.pdf>
I would like to have it output my latitude and longitude on the serial monitor
The code compiles and uploads, but I get these lines in the serial monitor:

I am running the serial monitor at a 115200 baud rate, and the gps at 4800

here is the code:

Code: [Select]
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
#include "TinyGPS.h"

/* This sample code demonstrates the normal use of a TinyGPS object.
   It requires the use of SoftwareSerial, and assumes that you have a
   4800-baud serial GPS device hooked up on pins 3(rx) and 4(tx).
*/

TinyGPS gps;
SoftwareSerial ss(3, 4);

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(115200);
  ss.begin(4800);
 
  Serial.print("Simple TinyGPS library v. "); Serial.println(TinyGPS::library_version());
  Serial.println("by Mikal Hart");
  Serial.println();
}

void loop()
{
  bool newData = false;
  unsigned long chars;
  unsigned short sentences, failed;

  // For one second we parse GPS data and report some key values
  for (unsigned long start = millis(); millis() - start < 1000;)
  {
    while (ss.available())
    {
      char c = ss.read();
      Serial.write(c); // uncomment this line if you want to see the GPS data flowing
      if (gps.encode(c)) // Did a new valid sentence come in?
        newData = true;
    }
  }

  if (newData)
  {
    float flat, flon;
    unsigned long age;
    gps.f_get_position(&flat, &flon, &age);
    Serial.print("LAT=");
    Serial.print(flat == TinyGPS::GPS_INVALID_F_ANGLE ? 0.0 : flat, 6);
    Serial.print(" LON=");
    Serial.print(flon == TinyGPS::GPS_INVALID_F_ANGLE ? 0.0 : flon, 6);
    Serial.print(" SAT=");
    Serial.print(gps.satellites() == TinyGPS::GPS_INVALID_SATELLITES ? 0 : gps.satellites());
    Serial.print(" PREC=");
    Serial.print(gps.hdop() == TinyGPS::GPS_INVALID_HDOP ? 0 : gps.hdop());
  }
 
  gps.stats(&chars, &sentences, &failed);
  Serial.print(" CHARS=");
  Serial.print(chars);
  Serial.print(" SENTENCES=");
  Serial.print(sentences);
  Serial.print(" CSUM ERR=");
  Serial.println(failed);
}


Any help would be appreciated..

thanks in advance

Do you have your serial monitor set to the same baud speed (115200) as the sketch?

rdeans

hi

thanks for your help

Yes, i have the same baud rate on the serial monitor as in the sketch

thanks

el_supremo

Does your GPS output at 4800 baud?
Mine outputs at 9600.

Pete

rdeans

hi pete

i changed the baud rate of the gps to 9600 and everything seems to be working fine....

Thank you so much for your help

:D


zoomkat

Is the output of your GPS rs232 or TTL?
