gpsout altitude?

Recommended Posts

what other data can i get from gpsout? Can i get altitude? roll rate pitch rate ect....

Whatever the supported NMEA sentences support. Altitude figures in at least one of them. Attitude information doesn't figure in any as far as I know, but there is an unpublished mode specifically intended for a proprietary program which does include such data (but not rates I think) -- nothing to do with GPSs and standard NMEA sentences though.

I suggest you check out the NMEA specs. I think there's a site which lists the more common ones, at least all those GPSout supports. Search on "NMEA 0183".

If you do find a sentence type you need for a specific GPS or PC application which accepts them, let me know and I'll see if I can add it. But if you are thinking more in terms of writing your own applications and need information from FS, I would refer you to the FSUIPC SDK and advise using that interface instead.
