Sodaq_UBlox_GPS

Arduino library for using the UBlox EVA7M.

Usage

Quick example:

#include <Arduino.h>
#include <Sodaq_UBlox_GPS.h>

#define MySerial        SERIAL_PORT_MONITOR

void setup()
{
    delay(3000);
    while (!SerialUSB) {
        // Wait for USB to connect
    }

    MySerial.begin(57600);
    do_flash_led(LED_BLUE);

    MySerial.println("SODAQ LoRaONE test_gps is starting ...");

    sodaq_gps.init(GPS_ENABLE);
    sodaq_gps.setDiag(MySerial);
}

void loop()
{
    MySerial.println("waiting in loop() ...");
    // Try to get a GPS scan and when we get a fix we print our location. We are
    // passing true to keep the GPS enabled after a scan
    if (sodaq_gps.scan(true))
    {
      MySerial.print("We are at latitude ");
      MySerial.print(sodaq_gps.getLat(), 13);
      MySerial.print(" longitude ");
      MySerial.print(sodaq_gps.getLon(), 13);
      MySerial.print(" altitude ");
      MySerial.print(sodaq_gps.getAlt(), 1);
      MySerial.print(" and HDOP ");
      MySerial.println(sodaq_gps.getHDOP(), 2);
    }
    delay(60000);
}
Method Description
init (int8_t enable_pin) Initializes the UBlox, and switches it on.
scan (bool leave_on=false, uint32_t timeout=20000) Scans all NMEA messages until lat/long is seen. It returns true when a fix is found.
