It was probably originally missed by me due to the fact that I am east of the 0 meridian ...
But the altitude should be exactly the same - are you sure you have a 3D fix?
The screenshot shows it was 240s since last fix. Are you testing indoors?

This has never really been clear to me.

Please help me understand the point of view within INDI for the computer and device, regarding the Device Updates...

Specifically:

When GPS_NMEA, or GPSD is running:
- Device Updates -> Computer - does this mean GPS_NMEA updates KStars, which updates mount?
- Device Updates -> Device - does this mean GPS_NMEA updates mount, not KStars?

When only mount is present:
- Device Updates -> Computer - mount updates computer (RPI3), and not KStars
- Device Updates -> Device - mount updates KStars, and not computer (RPI3)

Thank you

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the delay, I was not at home.

I made a quick video to show you what is the difference in altitude measurement with kstars/ekos and other program like cgps, xgps, ...
I hope this will help to understand my astonishment mostly if you are telling me that altitude is getting from the same source.

I precise that I'm using a gps module on my remote raspberry pi and for the video my rapsberry was outdoor.



[edit]it seems embedded youtube video is not working[/edit]

Sébastien.

This is really strange. Maybe we are using libgpsd api wrongly. But the code is lifted right out of the api tutorial.
Please try to set LANG=C in the shell before running any of the programs. This may be a localization problem.
I have noticed some problems with this in indi in the past.
