View Full Version : GPS Tracker Project ( GPS Module + JP Module + LCD Dispaly )

Hello all,

I just finished a summer project which is a GPS tracker demonstration program with data logging capacity. It uses BasicStamp 2P (also you can use PIC chip) to interface with a GPS Module, JP Module and 16x2 LCD display. Sample code used is standard PBasic 2.5 ( It can be changed to PicBasic or PicBasic Pro very easy).

It can record GPS data to a MMC/SD card with latitude and longitude information. The data can be processed from Google Map at the website: http://www.gpsvisualizer.com. If you have Google Earth installed, the data also can be processed into a KML file (Google earth data file format) at the website: http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/map?form=googleearth

I had been looking for a 'potted' solution for MMC to use a s a large but slow store for data logging. I tried the chipset from Compusys (Ron Diol) and it works but this looks like a cleaner implementation. I have ordered two JP modules and will let the forum know how thye work.
