    Free GPS software that just does location, heading ,altitude etc?

    Advertisement



    Is there a free gps app that can connect to a bluetooth gps and give me just location, speed, heading and altitude? I don,t want any maps or any requirement for a data connection. Something like spot, only much more simple and free.....

    Thanks

    I can suggest several free map programs, but none that I am aware of that work without a Data Connection.

    GPS/Map apps use the location fix provided by the GPSr to pinpoint location on a map-which gets its info through the data connection.

    Freebies:

    Nav4All

    Google Maps

    Blackberry Maps

    Let me know how you fare with nav4all - if it doesn't work out for you, a few weeks ago I wrote a small program that prints lat/lon/alt/speed to the screen from the GPS without a data connection. It was a part of a bigger program but I can strip it down to just that if you're really in a bind, PM me if you'd like.

    I would be interested also, it would be a great backup for flying.

    If you could type in coordinates to nav to it would be perfect.

    I think this may be just what you are looking for:

    http://www.bbtracker.org/

    Since it has no maps, I don't think it requires a data connection, just GPS reception.

    Also - I've noticed that that altitude is a bit suspect but it does give coordinates.

    Software for GPS

    I know that this is an 2007 topic, but if you still want this software, just send me an email.
    I have developed an app that do that and some more.
