GPS utility for NMEA GPS receivers
GPSGaugeLite is a highly efficient GPS NMEA data stream parser and display. It uses the optimized SerialPort SnoopInputStream class to parse the NMEA data stream. The program is so efficient it works comfortably on a Psion 5mx with it's tiny 36 MHz ARM processor.
GPSGaugeLite also provides a handy measuring method. The measuring method can be accurate to 3 meters when using a GPS receiver with Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS ).
The Java source code, and project files (Visual Cafe 4) for GPSGaugeLite are included with all SerialPort Professional and Enterprise licenses. SerialPort package information.
Pictured below is GPSGaugeLite running on the Sharp Zaurus SL-5500.
Works great with the Zaurus GPS reciever.
GPSGaugeLite is available free for a limited time. Note GPSGaugeLite requires SerialPort to be installed.
Version 1.5 supports NMEA 0183 Version 2.3 used in Garmin eTrex devices, and NMEA streams that don't supply 'compass' data ($GPRMC field 10 & 11).
Version 1.6 supports Zaurus SL-6000 high resolution VGA mode on Sun's CVM.
