First GPS data


Well, my GPS device is coming along.  I’m getting my first batch of data off the board that is close to usable. I walked it to the end of my block and back at night with all the lights blinking and flashing on the board.  The neighbors probably think I’m a terrorist building a bomb or something.  Looks like I need to add a bit of code to ignore points whose accuracy is in question.  The start of my walk was all over the place (in my neighbors living room if you believe the device), but by the end, it seemed to hone in and nail down my position pretty well.

I’m targeting this device to output GPX data which should be an easily readable XML format for Flex/AIR developers to use.  Right now, the screenshot you’re viewing is from Google Earth which also accepts GPX data files.
