I want to use external bluetooth module and wonder if locus can use all it sends through bluetooth serial port: GGA, GSA, GSV, RMC, VTG, GLL, EGNOS data...?

Hello ulmus,


currnelty only main basics. If you want to use any concrete tag, I should tell you if is used or not and if is possible to add it. If you then record for me short NMEA message, I should implement and test it.


Currently used are:

GGA, GLL, GSA, GSV, RMC, WPL


I'm now anyway 100% sure, Locus use all data that comes with these messages.

I am interested most in egnos corrections, i dont know if it matters,dont know how it works, but i will have soon receiver with egnos demodulator and want to use all it can give with locus to achieve the best accuracy i can.

I think that all these receivers apply these corrections automatically. In NMEA messages is only a one parameter that indicates that coordinates are with better accuracy (thanks to EGNOS/WAAS corrections). So there should not be any additional work on side of app developer.


Anyway I may be wrong, so please correct me if I mistake.

Thank you. As soon I will have receiver I will tell you if it works.
