I'm testing GPSTools, planning to use it for a real-time tracking project i'm playing with.
Since this will be real-time, I need to get data from my connected GPS unit as often as possible.
I have tried playing with the EventInterval setting, but whatever I set it to, it seems like GPS data only refreshes about every 2 seconds.
I am using a Garmin GPSmap 60cx, using the Garmin Spanner application to present NMEA data on a COM port. Im just wondering if it might be the GPS/SPanner and not the app itself that gives me this low performance?
If anyone of you have info on how often I should expect data to update it would be great. I would absolutely buy a new GPS (with a native NMEA interface) if that's the reason I'm struggling.
any pointers appreciated!
