GPS and sensor software

Hello!

Can anyone refer a software/gui that displays data from gps as well as a few sensor data (e.g. temperature, force)? I am looking for something like locosys GPSFox but that also supports sensor data. Thanks in advance!

I bet if you google you can find plenty of those things in their projects but not necessarily exactly like what you look for. It's up to you to piece different elements of working projects together into your own. You can certainly ask for help here.

Here is one project I found for you ;) That's GPS

You will need to provide more details of temperature and force sensors if you want someone to help you pick one or connect to arduino.

That's a nice one. I think I might have to put it together myself, I have searched a lot with no success.

Yep. Putting together a project is all the fun. If you do want to save some time, you can start with another person's project. The most up-to-date of my project code is here:

Hardware I used: Phi-2 shield version 2004 and EM-406 GPS

How is the GPS you used? I’m going to use LS20031 (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8975).
What’s the true accuracy of it?

I don't know the meaning of true accuracy. From my limited experience with non-military GPS, they are accurate up to several meters/10s of feet.

What is your project intending to do with GPS. They're slow in response besides not accurate for small distances.
