I was wondering if anyone has been able to integrate an external GPS with the dragonBord410C? I know it has an inbuilt 1htz GPS but for my purposes I need to have a 5-10htz gps, I have been trying to work with the Adafruit ultimate GPS as shown here: https://www.adafruit.com/product/746
I haven’t been able to access the NMEA data using a simple tx-rx connection with the dragon board. Also note that I use Android on the dragon board and I want to pass the NMEA data into an app that I will run on Android. I have been successful in retrieving GPS data and displaying it on the Android app running on the dragon board by using an Arduino board as an intermediate. But I feel like the Arduino is unnecessary given that the expansion connector on the dragon board has TX-RX pins.
Also I have tried using a 10 htz bluetooth GPS connection to do the same and it works perfectly fine but for my purposes I need a GPS module that is wired into the board and doesn’t use wireless communication to transfer GPS data. (For reference I used this bluetooth GPS which works great: http://www.qstarz.com/Products/GPS%20Products/BT-Q818XT-F.htm)
I would love to know if anyone has been able to retrieve 5-10htz external GPS data with Android running on the dragonboard without using bluetooth or an intermediate board such as an Arduino or R-pi? If so, would you please guide me on how to do it?
