1) I am using the Delorme Earthmate LT-40 GPS (USB) on an Archos PMA-430.
2) The Operating System Software has been changed to OpenPMA 0.2
3) The GPS device is connected to the PMA430 by the USB host cable.
When starting qpeGPS 0.9.2.3 pre I get the following error:
Abort: Exit qpeGPS now.
Retry: Start gpsd with default settings.
Ignore: Change setup on GPS page.
1) Using the guide from Pointlisse.com “Using QpeGPS with your PMA430"
ARGS: -p /dev/gps
GPSD: ERR (red), the GPS: ??? (red)*No GMS Signal rcvd*
Using the Default Setting
ARGS: -p /dev/ttyS0 -s 4800
GPSD: OK (green), GPS: ??? (red)*No GMS Signal rcvd*
Using a Modified Setting
ARGS: -p /dev/ttyS0 –s 9600
Is there anything that you can see that is wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
/dev/gps is no standard device so gpsd can not find.
/dev/ttyS0 is the first standard serial (RS232)port - not USB. It seems you got the hardware so gpsd can connect but can not find a GPS device.
Check the /dev directory: maybe there is something like /dev/ttyUSB0...
My Linux desktop is handling USB mass storage devices as SCSI and my SL-C860 only accepts CF GPS - so this is my only idea, maybe it helps.
