  • The short answer: does not look very good

    I just try to get raw data out of the venus for use with rtklib (see http://www.rtklib.com/rtklib_releasenote.htm). Connected to a raspberry Pi, so no way to use GPS viewer exe app. I`’m using simple perl scripts instead.

    There is an app note around AN0024_v06-RawMeasurement.pdf which explains how to compile the binary messages. Following these instruction, I can switch baud rate, NMEA bs binary output and similar things. So, I think, I got the protocol right. But when it comes to command 0x12 “Configure binary measurement output rates”, I get a simple NACK - the command is rejected by the firmware.

    The App note is titled: “Application Note AN0024 - Raw Measurement - Binary Message Extension Of SkyTraq Venus 6 GPS Receiver” So, would I require a special firmware including this “Raw Measurement Extension”? Where can I get it? Will I have access to it when I buy the skytraq SDK?

No public wish lists :(
