NMEA Recorder

NMEA Recorder


Record raw NMEA sentence to sdcard.

Files are stored to sdcard/NMEA_Recorder.

It is also possible to resolve some types of NMEA data. (more type of sentence will follow in future)

Some devices has no NMEA protocol. E.g. some Motorola Defy are not possible to record NMEA.

Attention: Please do not write a comment, when you have a problem with the functionality, then please write me first for support.
For Graham: the nmea sentences are recorded like they come from sensor. no processing is done with it. so if you have empty GSA sentence, then you probably have no gps fix or something other is wrong, but it is not a problem of the app.
To avoid wrong comments, please write me first an email.

Recent changes:
- devices with MTP connection -> the PC explorer can see now the recorded files (thanks to Marco Hehn for testing and reporting this issue)
- PDOP,HDOP,VDOP visible if the resolve option is activated
- Enable GPS if it is disabled
- Preferences bugfix
- Notification Manager bugfix
- Welcome text update for some small information about functionality.

External GPS? I'd like to see the incoming sentences scrolling by so I know the recorder does work. No decoding required for screen dump. I have to close the program to check whether it recognized my external GPS mice now.

Limited but promising I needed an app to collect NMEA sentences from my Galaxy S2 to bring back for developing a tablet mapping package. This app did the job and stored 30 minutes of data on the SD card. But it only stored GSA sentences - which were all empty - and GSV sentences which were correct, but neither of which give the location.The SGS2 can also provide GGA and RMC which do give location and are what I really wanted. So good start but I'll wait for the next version -or sit in my garden while developing so I can get live data!
