After.burner, Dr.Tom, could you post the source for the 2Hz Update patch?
I set SCREEN_AND_SENSOR_UPDATES_PER_SEC to 2, but it has no impact on the GPS/Home Arrow speed...
Thanks a lot!

that's a hardware limitation, the GPS that comes with it absolutely SUCKS and has a 1Hz update rate. and the data is 3-5 seconds behind.

you need a new gps module(10hz) for better home arrow

Wow, I go on a holiday and the forum explodes with questions.

I'm sorry if I don't answer your questions but I have a hard time finding time to work on this project right now.
I'm on parent leave at home with my child. And also working on a new project that little time I have.

If any of you find any bugs in the code please make a bug on the google code page here.
For questions regarding config, hardware etc. ask it here and some of the smart guys might be able to help you.

Good that you found a solution, but it's a bit weird that you only can use 22 chars...
What type of camera are you using?

Hi,
thanks for the utility, but I think it takes a signal converter TTL/RS232 to connect to your PC. Correct?
