GPS connection

Post by Peter_Muds » Thu Feb 21, 2019 3:17 pm

Hi

Apologies if this is a very basic question but I am new to the subject
What would be the cheapest way to connect a GPS receiver to the multiplexer ?
For instance, can I simply connect a GPS mouse to the USB port of the Nmea4Wifi ? (something like this https://www.amazon.de/GlobalSat-wasserf ... B000PKX2KA)?

Thanks

Peter

Hello Peter,

USB allows the communication between one host and up to 127 devices. 2 devices cannot communicate between them. The multiplexer USB port is a device. So you need a GPS receiver that outputs Nmea183 data and connect it to one of the 4 inputs.

Regards, Luis
