  1. Thank you Pete for the update to FSUIPC it works perfectly now with the Apple Core Location API! Thanks again for the quick update. Best regards John Car http://gpssimcable.com
  2. Thank you Pete! I am a registered user of FSIPUC4 and the INI option is a great idea. Please let me know when I can test the INI option in FSX. Thank You
  3. An INI file option setting would be great Pete. Please let me know when I can test it this option with FSX. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my rants. Can you send the update to me when its ready to jcar@hvision.biz ? I am a registered user of FSUIPC4
  4. Pete can you add the S to the $GPRMC,210740.00,A,5323.4026,N,00211.9986,W,40.0,50.9,040712,2.8,W,S*51 Sentence ? This will help anyone that is writing any applications that access the core location API on Ipad, Iphone and Ipod.
  5. Here is the confirmation
  6. This is the test I ran with NMEAtalker http://www.sailsoft.nl/NemaTalker.htm and confirmed that the Apple Core location API passed the information for heading and course to the location aware applications on the iPad by adding the letter S in the $GPRMC sentence. These are the definition's for the different modes. Can you add this letter S to the $GPRMC sentence and let me beta test for proper operation?

(The values in the GGA mode field were extended to carry this information as well.) Here are the values: FAA Mode Indicator A = Autonomous mode D = Differential Mode E = Estimated (dead-reckoning) mode M = Manual Input Mode S = Simulated Mode N = Data Not Valid This field may be empty.

  7. Pete I will research further to find out what the issue might be and get back to you. Thank you for your help.
  8. Here is the error I get on on course and heading from the Apple core location API
  9. Well my intention was not to get you mad but to fix the issue with apple core location API and to increase further sales of FSUIPC were else can I go to take this? I can send you a cable and communicate with you off this forum?
  10. Apparently that sentence changed in some respect between the 2.1 and 3.01 versions of the NMEA spec. I do not know the exact differences. Apple only uses the GPGGA and GPRMC sentences, All I know there is a slight difference between the specs and if the sentence is not formatted correctly the Apple Location API will not read the data.
  11. Pete so the sentence is formatted like this? $--RMC,hhmmss.ss,A,llll.ll,a,yyyyy.yy,a,x.x,x.x,xxxxxx,x.x,a,a*hh<CR><LF> hhmmss.ss = UTC of position fix A = Status (A = data valid; V = warning) llll.ll = Latitude a = N/S yyyyy.yy = Longitude a = E/W x.x = Speed over ground, knots x.x = Course over ground, degrees true xxxxxx = Date ddmmyy x.x = Magnetic variation (degrees) a = E/W a = Mode
  12. this link will show you version 1,2,3,4 http://aprs.gids.nl/nmea/#rmc if you can go to http://gpssimcable.com/contact/ and please tell me were to send the cable. Please confirm version 3 and 4 I would like to test the fix as soon as possible to confirm that it works. What data is missing is course, heading, speed. This will confirm that it is sending data properly to the Apple Core location API. This cable will work with any location aware applications and over rides the internal GPS on the IPAD. Also the sentence must be formatted with the spec above. Thank you greatly.
  13. eg3 is Version 3 Can you confirm that this is what FSUIPC4 is sending. Thank you eg3. $GPRMC,220516,A,5133.82,N,00042.24,W,173.8,231.8,130694,004.2,W*70 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 1 220516 Time Stamp 2 A validity - A-ok, V-invalid 3 5133.82 current Latitude 4 N North/South 5 00042.24 current Longitude 6 W East/West 7 173.8 Speed in knots 8 231.8 True course 9 130694 Date Stamp 10 004.2 Variation 11 W East/West 12 *70 checksum this is version 4 eg4. $GPRMC,hhmmss.ss,A,llll.ll,a,yyyyy.yy,a,x.x,x.x,ddmmyy,x.x,a*hh 1 = UTC of position fix 2 = Data status (V=navigation receiver warning) 3 = Latitude of fix 4 = N or S 5 = Longitude of fix 6 = E or W 7 = Speed over ground in knots 8 = Track made good in degrees True 9 = UT date 10 = Magnetic variation degrees (Easterly var. subtracts from true course) 11 = E or W 12 = Checksum
  14. Please excuse my miss spelling of NMEA. FSUIPC4 does not support $GPRMC as it relates to NMEA version 3.01 sentence in NMEA as stated in my last post. In version NMEA 3.01 they added additional information that FSUIPC4 does not support. All I am asking that you look of adding this extra information in the NMEA sentence so that the Apple core location API can translate the heading and course information properly. As you can see the specs below added additional data to the $GPRMC sentence since NMEA version 1.5 and 2.0 I can send you a cable to test out if you wish with your Ipad or iphone so you can get a better understanding of what I am trying to tell you. Recommended minimum specific GPS/Transit data eg1. $GPRMC,081836,A,3751.65,S,14507.36,E,000.0,360.0,130998,011.3,E*62 eg2. $GPRMC,225446,A,4916.45,N,12311.12,W,000.5,054.7,191194,020.3,E*68 225446 Time of fix 22:54:46 UTC A Navigation receiver warning A = OK, V = warning 4916.45,N Latitude 49 deg. 16.45 min North 12311.12,W Longitude 123 deg. 11.12 min West 000.5 Speed over ground, Knots 054.7 Course Made Good, True 191194 Date of fix 19 November 1994 020.3,E Magnetic variation 20.3 deg East *68 mandatory checksum
