Frequently Asked Questions

Is it a possible to build a DataPlus application to log GPS points, say at 10 second intervals as well as have the ability to bring in other serial data from another com port at the same time?
Without testing this, it would seem possible. Dataplus can be run unattended to collect information. Note that this information is just the GPS points from the NMEA string and will not be able to be post-processed.

There are four types of serial input. Standard Input, Streaming Input, Auto Polled Input, and Manual Polled Input.

Using a combination of these depending on the devices together with the line feed should enable the feature you are after.
