I wonder if anyone would be interested in trialling an Android app that monitors the output from a GPS module. The phone/tablet connects to the GPS via an OTG cable and either an Arduino board with a USB connection (eg, Nano, Uno) or a TTL/USB converter.
I know we can monitor the GPS output via a USB terminal app using either a OTG or Bluetooth connection, but that just gives a rapidly scrolling stream of sentences -- not easy to study.
The u-center software from u-blox is great, but you have to use a computer and it's perhaps more sophisticated than we need for just monitoring the accessing of sats and progress in getting a fix.
The app gives static views of the sentences as well as the values of parameters such as Sats Seen, Sats Used, Date, Time, Lat, Lon. This makes it easy to monitor progress rather than just waiting ages hoping for that blinking light.
Anyone interested in trying out the app?
