GPSTool 1.0
by Marcus "ALB42" Sackrow

A test and record tool for GPS devices on Amiga systems.
Understands NMEA serial (or USB-to-serial) commandos.


Device, Unit and Baudrate can be set via tooltypes of the icon
or as command line parameter (e.g. GPSTool serial.device 0 4800)
Tooltypes are preset, remove the brakets and insret your device
By default, it uses usbmodem.device Unit 0 Baud 4800.

The window:

Upper left side shows some data from the GPS device, like
position, Height, speed, numbers of satelites we are in contact.
Current GPS Date and Time (GMT). Direction of movement in degree.
Numbers of points recorded.

In the upper right side the satelites position on the sky
is shown. Blue satelites are in contact with our GPS modules
Gray colored satelites are without contact. (maybe blocked by
a building or something)

The the lower region of the window the signal strength of the
different satelites are shown. Blue ones are in contact with the
GPS reciever. Red did send a signal but not a complete init.
Below this panel is a little scroller showing infromations about
the program, the GPS device and used NMEA commands.

If connection is made using GPS satelites "GPS" is written in the
Window title, if the Data from Glonass system "Glonass" is written
there. If both (or more) systems are used both names will appear
in the title of the window.

Track Recording:

Press the "Record" to start a recording of a track. The software
will record round about a point per second. If you press "Stop" the
recording ends and the track is saved in GPX format to the same
directory with the name Track_date_time.gpx.
The GPX file can be open with any software supporting GPX e.g

Program made with Lazarus/Freepascal for Amiga
