TOPIC: Can anybody recommend USB GPS dongle for RPi/StellarMate?

Can anybody recommend USB GPS dongle for RPi/StellarMate? 6 days 23 hours ago #27346

The GPS NMEA works great. ShareGPS app on your phone and knowing the IP of the phone on the stellarmate network is really all you need for the driver to work. (and a gps lock with your phone of course)

This is the only way I can get a time sync on the pi without internet.

So now I have a working GPS device. I have tested it in windows and its working fine. The data stream is not garbled binary but nice ASCII

I tried it on StellarMate and it worked too! (After I manually started gpsd). So I rebooted StellarMate and it didnt work . So I returned the SD card with StellarMate 1.3 and tried again and it still didnt work. So I thought maybe it needs Kstars to set it up so I ran Kstars/Ekos and it connected but no data like before.

So I checked the /etc/default/gpsd file and it did not list a device so I entered /dev/gps and rebooted and it still doesn't work. No data. Seemingly dead.

EDIT: Sorry wrong thread

got this and its working now: www.amazon.com/GlobalSat-BU-353-S4-USB-R...-Black/dp/B008200LHW
