kusako Posted March 23, 2006 Share Posted March 23, 2006 Hi- sorry if this is somewhat off topic, but I couldn't think of another forum to post it. I'd like to use a GPS as sort of a blackbox, to automatically store GPS coordinates as I move, together with timestamps of when the coordinate samples were taken. As I understand it, most GPS units have this kind of functionality. Now my questions: How long can you record GPS data? The manufacturer's data sheets usually state how many coordinates can be stored, but not how many samples are taken per time interval. I would like to keep record of 3 to 4 weeks of GPS information. Would this be possible? Any recommendation of a unit that would allow to do this? Can the track informations (coordinates + timestamps) actually be exported to a pc in a documented format or do you need some special software? Do you need special drivers to access a GPS unit from a pc, or is it recognized as a standard USB bulk device? Thanks for your answers. -markus Quote Link to comment
