10hz GPS

Gents,

     Just thought I'd pass along some info, I successfully have been using the Locosys 2303x 10hz GPS with the AQ-1. Here's the AQ-1 settings and the data sheet.  It provided a bit more detail over the 5hz Garmin unit I had been using.

I would suggest to turn up

I would suggest to turn up the sample rate. You should always try to log at a faster rate than the sensor itself. That way you know you are getting all the sample information from the sensor and don't run into overlaying points. So sample at 20Hz.

blacksaleen95 Where did you

blacksaleen95 Where did you buy that gps receiver from?

Can't find a retailer.

You find it more responsive and reliable over the Garmin unit?

Guys,

Guys,

I have connected a locosys LS23036 (RS232 interface). (I have succesufully used the garmin 18x PC in the past but found it to slow of update).

I have used the above settings and serial signal is communicating but I can not get satelitte signal. I keep recieving " Accurring signal". I live in Australia and it says 0 of 12 satelittes in use.

If i change the baud rate to a higer rate i still recieve the same error but the screen teels me it using 16 of 12 satelittes with 0 longatuide and 0 latitude but i get a reading of 10ft.

Does anybody have any ideas?

Cheers

Wiring the LS23036-G

I'm having the same problem as Xcandy
It says 14 of 12 satellites, acquiring sattelites still.
i've got an altitude reading but no Lat or Long, or Speed.
I'm running out of ideas,

Note: I'm also in Australia.

Jacob,

Jacob,

I installed GPSmini V1.7.1 onto a pc with a serial port and found the default settings of the locosys of 115200 and 10hz update to satisfactory pick up satelites and give back correct Lat and Long. I then it plugged back into the AQ1 and after a minute or two it two was working with correct Lat and Long. :)  The next day I tried it again with the AQ1 and it would pick up 16 satelites but I kept getting the "Accurring Signal" fault. Note : I isolate the entire electrical system on my car when not in use.

Very frustrating as I need this GPS system to be reliable for motor racing.

Maybe someone from AEM could help us here.....

Well I guess that getting lat

Well I guess that getting lat and long at all was promising.
I also need the GPS for motor racing, the bike will be on track in about 10 days.

My system was totally isolated as well, I had it setup out side the workshop for about 45 mins with no such luck.

Any ideas or things to try from AEM would be welcome,

Hi All,

Hi All,

it's possible use a bluetooth antenna, like Q-Starz, on AQ1 using a serial to bluetooth adapter?

As long at the blutooth

As long at the blutooth adapter ouputs to the correct pins, being the GPS TX on pin 2, and GPS Ground on Pin five, as per the harness instruction manual, It should be fine I'd imagine.
Although I think most of the guys that run a serial gps use a 5v power from another plug, so it could be tricky to try and get the power to the bluetooth adapter.
Another problem I see would be added response time.
