  • I have the same gps cf card and I'm trying to run it with an ipaq 55xx. So the right device seems to be /dev/tts/3. I get the following information about the serial-port:

    On a pxa-based iPAQ such as the h5550, the serial ports are in /dev/tts/. I would expect there would be a /dev/tts/3 present with the card inserted.

    In qpeGPS I have a green ok for gpsd but a read ??? for GPS. Is this the same for you, or did you get a right gps signal?

    Thanks

    Michael

    • Have you tried running gpsd in debug mode and verifying that you communicating with the gps module?  You'll want the -n -N -D 3 options.

      http://gpsd.berlios.de/gpsd.html

      I'd be interested to know how you do, as I have a GPS lock in gpsd, but not in qpegps.

       
  • Hello,

    I could not start gpsd from qpegps only from the console. I fI start it from the console I get a connect, but I can't a valid GPS Signal. I'm using qpsd 2.20 shipped with familiar 8.2 testing from handhelds.org.

    I think I'm communicating with the gps module. Here the output (im inside a building ) If I'm outside, I get useful signals, position, heigt, for e.g.

  • Success,

    device works.

    I missed to use the gpsd from the qpegps-website. So here is what I did.

    For an Ipaq 5500 install qpegps and gpsd from the ipkg files from familiar.handhelds.org. Then I untar the qpsd.tar.gz files from the qpegps homepage (sourceforge) and copy the gpsd file to the ipaq.

    I can start gpsd only from the console: gpsd -p /dev/tts/3
    The I start the qpegps

    Everything is working great.
    I use a Sysonchip CF plus card
