Garmin GPS 12 or GPS12 and route tracking by UKDutyPaid
Hi there, I have won 100 of Argos vouchers and was looking at what I could trade them in for.

Looking for a few second I/Q data set for IF samples by Johnson[_2_]
Hi there, I am looking for a data set that contains the IF I/Q samples after ADC, to test a software GNSS receiver. I already have a data set provided by "A Software-Defined GPS and Galileo Receiver", which the sampling frequency of which is 38.192 MHz, while the "Nominal" IF frequency is 9.548 MHz. The ADC has 4 bits. However, I need a different data set collected at a different location.

nokia n82 altitude error by pinco pallo
I am using Nokia N82 with embedded GPS. The displayed altitude is not that on the level of the sea (geoid) but that on the ellipsoid. The required correction is different from point to point and needs to be found. Is possible to get the correct value automatically? Many gps does it. It is a matter of firmware. Seem me impossible that the gps of the Nokia could not do it.
