Output GPS to DSC VHF - Leigh - 12-01-2017

Hi,

I have a RPi3-Sensehat setup with a USB GPS (see bragboard)

I'd now like to export GPS to my VHF radio (NAVMAN 7100EU)

Page 36 in the manual in the link above says the Navman has GPS/NMEA input (I know this since at the moment I have the VHF wired up to an old Garmin Etrex)

It also says Comm. Port: 4800 baud NMEA on page 36.

How could I do this, physically and in terms of software setup

Please  Smile

Leigh

Thanks Luckbert,
I put a notification request for when they come back in stock
I found the NMEA add documentation, with both a GPS and a gpsd example button - what is the difference?

Hi
Gpsd is a deamon. It is a small tool between GPS sensor and software.
GPS is the direct serial port.
