This script reads NMEA Strings from an USB-Serial GPS Dongle, and writes the position data into the /etc/config/gluon-node-info file.

It is intended to run directly on a Freifunk Router, running Gluon Firmware and has an USB Socket.

Initial version was written using a Navilock NL-601US.


You need drivers for your USB-Serial GPS Dongle.

Check ls /dev/ for any ttyUSB* device, try dmesg and logread to find any signs of your hardware.

Install via opkg:

opkg update
opkg install kmod-usb-acm

Use the script to copy, and then run your scripts on a node.
