GPS NMEA Bluetooth was created by Gerard

Hello everybody,

I have played around with a Navigon bluetooth GPS NMEA...
It works well with the Raspberry under Ubuntu 16.04 so i can get all GPS datas with:
$cat /dev/rfcomm0
I have tried to use indi_gpsnmea but not support bluetooth connexion.
also GPSD does not send any data to Ekos...

Is it something I have got wrong or may be a bad driver connexion ?

I thank you in advance

You should configure this with GPSD. Then check with cgps or gpsmon to see if there are any data reported by GPSD.

Thanks Jasem,

You led me in right direction, I did :
<code> sudo nano /etc/default/gpsd </code>
changed:
<code>
USBAUTO="false"
DEVICES="/dev/rfcomm0"
GPSD_OPTIONS="-n"
</code>

That's works well ...

Thanks
