Not only does this keep the out of trouble, but also acts as a heat sink. The only reason I did not include them was because the original intention of this project was just to record run routes, which did not require time or speed info. It is older GPS technology, so it may not and in my case usually does not acquire a fix when there are any obstructions. This is very convenient because I can recharge 4 AA batteries for the Tripmate and 4 for the logger circuit and so far I have found that they last quite a while. Welcome to the Make: Notice the locking tabs and the sequence of the wires. The above settings are stored internally by the TripMate so if you turn something off, it will stay that way until it’s turned back on.

PIC16F88 Delorme Tripmate GPS Logger
The Tripmate transmits the position and satellite information at 1 Hz 1 time per secondso you could use the latitude and longitude information, plug it into the Haversine formulaand have estimate of the distance traveled per second. Perhaps there is an easier way to do this? R1 is a pull-up resistor necessary for operation. The plan was to create a GPS data logger that would record the position of the unit and allow me to read back the latitude and longitude after acquiring the data.
Microchip Engineer Posted date: A pre-programmed PIC would be great for us novices. Believe it or not, there is a regulator underneath those epoxy capacitors. Kantronics products have jumpers that can supply power on either pin 13 or pin 25 of the serial port or pin 7 of the KPC3plus radio port. The following information was recovered, with great difficulty, after the original link and page disappeared from the web, so I can’t give credit for it as I would wish.
A standard db9 to db25 adapter that you buy in a store will not work!
Power Supply This is the only component that is ambiguous in the schematic. More information about the self-start modification can be found on these websites:. I am going to try to power the tripmate and the pic off the same battery source. A 12v power supply would be handy for an automotive application. Please only respond to my questions if you are so incline.
DeLorme Tripmate GPS Receiver
With time you could go back and calculate velocities. Once tgipmate Tripmate is modified to self-start, it will automatically output position and satellite information when power is applied. It will display the datum as well as log it. To get speed you have to convert two coordinates into distance, then divide by elapse time.

PIC16F88 Delorme Tripmate GPS Logger
I happen to have one that my family used a couple of years ago and it is still in great shape. This was a fun experiment because not only did I need to interface the PIC16F88 to the Tripmate, but I also needed to parse the output and implement an efficient storage solution.
I modified my Tripmate to self-start using a loopback modification. A cheaper cheaper GPS logger… — Link. This site uses Akismet selorme reduce spam. However, if this project is transitioned to an 18F PIC, then it would not be a problem to add the necessary code. Thanks for signing up.
Dspic-Servo Project using PIC30F microcontroller Project Description This project was developed as tripmte inexpensive way to drive small dc brushed motors as positioning servos for Has anyone modified this idea to be used solely as an accurate Odometer? Notice the locking tabs and the sequence of the wires. Although the MAX should nominally be run at 5 Volts, I have found that it works perfectly fine at 4.
This is for a radio club transmitter hunting competition where competitors have to Direction Find DF the delotme in the shortest time and distance. I agree with 4. The center lead of the is connected to the shield of the sound blaster cable. So update speed would be key here also.
