I am new to the FOSS-GPS list, so I hope I am using it the right way.
Also, experienced in IT and GIS, but a novice to technical GPS.
As an archaeologist I am experimenting with cheap but accurate
positioning and recently heard about RTKGPS for Android; getting
accurate (sub 10cm) positioning with an external GPS and your
I found one example of an experiment with the app on your list as well.
Now I bought an external GPS receiver BU-353-S4USB GPS with SiRF Star IV
GPS chipset, because I read that it can be reset to RAW L1 band data for
use with the app. Strangely enough the manual for doing this is in an
old e-bay post :
So, I followed the steps and can get at least some GPS apps working with
the antenna on my Windows machine.
On the Android device however, a green light, but no data. I am not sure
even how to configure the app (info not provided on e-bay or anywhere
else so it seems). Also, tried the Windows version of RTKNavi, but it
doesn't roll with SIRF it seems?
Any advice or similar experiences? Should I have bought another antenna
