With a ftdi cable (or another serial interface) connect your gps to the PC, with a SerialTerminal (RealTerm comes to mind...) capture the gps strings and post them here.

What baud rate are you using for serial data?

Are the same for Arduino and the gps unit?

Today i solved my all porblems i use arduino uno on rx, arduino pro mini on tx.

Directly Connected pro mini pin10-->uno pin 2

I did bench test the first time with a GPS. But it did not work i think my gps not work at 115200bps. I look after

Second time using with ftdi cable. I tried this too. it didn't work at 115200pbs, never got a GPS signal. I checked port settings and ftdi cable set to 9600 bps. (windows port settings in device manager).

After a few attempts came to success with ardupilot emulator. Tilt work amazing i need 360 degree servo for the pan

i will try wirelles banch test. I hope that works..
Thanks for your patience, but not over :P

This tracker is cheap amazing and educational(for me )

I am (still) here, answering questions when they are done (PM mostly).

As far as I am concerned, this project is "mature" and on hold.


With almost 400 downloads and only less than a hand full of declared users, this is not motivating to continue developing the project

Do you mean you will end developing for video telemetry version or for audio telemetry? Video telemetry could be more popular since a lot of people use Dennis Frie's osd.

Hi jalves, I only found your thread a week or so ago, I have ordered up some parts to build as I can't afford to buy commercial versions of the tracker. I can only enjoy this hobby because of people like you and the Multiwii guys, minim OSD and others that give up there time to do this stuff (wish I could do more!)
Please carry on this good work, I for one appreciate it!

Me too, appreciate it! I would really like to see the videotelemetry version implemented into DF's Max-osd...That would be really sweet!
If you'll make it I will be the first to test it after you Jalves :P

I've been subscribed to this thread too for a long time. Don't have the use for a tracker atm, but expect to need one in the future. So even though there not a lot documented in use in the field, don't underestimate how much it means for a lot of us, that You and others put Your time in these threads. We learn a lot from You along the way. I'm hooked on Dennis' threads too. You both do a valuable job here.

I was trying to compile AT_TX in ver 1.0 and i made this change.
In printing.pde

Code:
Serial.print("Valid Data= ");Serial.println(valid_data,BYTE);
with

Code:
Serial.print("Valid Data= ");Serial.println(valid_data);
I dont know if it is correct since still trying to learn.

Change it to:
Serial.print("Valid Data= "); Serial.write( byte(valid_data) );

But use the Serial.print out as minimal as you can get.

Serial.print is slow and can mess with the timings of the telemetry link.
