I'm new to the forum, so i'm not allowed to use the forum-tools as active links and such yet - so i'm sorry about the need to copy and paste. And now to the question.
Has anybody tried to build Sean Carney's excellent GPS-reciever???... as I'm not allowed to paste code or active links, then I have to refer to google, and use the following keywords – “Sean Carney GPS”. It will then be the first link on the list (again – sorry about this).
It uses the NewSoftSerial- and TinyGPS-library, and i have downloaded the newest version today (TinyGPS 9 and NewSoftSerial 10c), and i'm using this with Arduino IDE 0021.
BUT... i can't get Sean Carney's code to work - i keep getting the error...
gpsSystem2_0:68: error: 'NewSoftSerial' does not name a type gpsSystem2_0.cpp: In function 'void setup()': gpsSystem2_0:101: error: 'nss' was not declared in this scope gpsSystem2_0.cpp: In function 'bool feedgps()': gpsSystem2_0:1082: error: 'nss' was not declared in this scope
But funny enough i have succeded in compiling it once, in between getting the error above - but i was so anxious in finding the error, that i did'nt upload the code to the Arduino at the time. Now i'm stuck... i can't find out, why i get the error as well as why it suddenly compiled once - so if anybody has a good idea, it would be nice to see...
Either the error lies in the code (which i presume), or the error lies in the library - or maybe in the IDE itself (as it was able to compile once). It's kind of frustrating, as my hardware is ready to be tested, but i can't get the code to work - even more when i'm kind of a "hardware"-guy, more than a programmer... but I might eventually get it might get to work!! :-)
