Try to use my Ipaq 3870 as a moving map display


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

Normally I connect my Ipaq 3870 Pda to my computer using a usb cable. Now I would like to use my PDA as a moving map display ( I prefer flight charts ). What kind of software dio I need and is this possible with an usb connection or do I have to make a connection through the com port?

Best regards,

Karl

I don't know what moving map software there is for PDAs, you'd need to search the web.

The only stuff I do to drive moving map displays is based on those expecting the output from a GPS, to NMEA 0183 standards. NMEA GPS output is by serial connection (COM) and is specified to operate at 4800 bps, but I support (and prefer) higher speeds if possible. This is in my GPSout module.

There are no standards that I know of for GPS's using USB outputs.

Regards,

Pete
