GPS for pets

I am looking for a GPS system that will locate your pet cat or dog that has disappeared.  I know that there are microchips implanted in pets to identify them when they have been displaced and rescued.  There is also telemetry that is used with wildlife to track animals.  Any ideas?

how to integrate a dash monut GPS with car stock FM radio and speaker system?

I like to use my car speakers  with my dash mount GPS. Is there anyway GPS announcements can be made thru the speaker system while the radio is on playing  either by fading the music or by temporarily interrupting it.. The GPS has a headphone jack output and a USB port and it is bluetooth enabled. I am thinking that a sound activated FM transmitter with an integrated  sound activated switch might do the trick. Any suggestions or solutions?

CRIUS GPS module not sensitive anymore. Any ideas? Answered

It's been awhile since I have messed around with my quadcopter. However, the weather was really nice yesterday and I decided to go for a bit of a flight. Just about EVERYTHING on my quadcopter was messed up. To the point it was unflyable. Some reason my CRIUS GPS module simply stopped working as well as it used to. It still works, but instead of taking a few seconds to get a lock, with 7-9 satellites detected, it seems to take 5 to 10 minutes with only 4-5 satellites. All the while it is acquiring a lock, my battery is draining with the ESCs on standby and the gimbal motors drawing an amp or two. The ceramic square top seems to have been coated with a metal square, and that is scratched off in one corner and showing areas of damage. I thought this is just cosmetic damage, but is that actually damage to the antenna? I don't know much about GPS RF voodoo. How do these GPS antennas work?

Help with Geomate Jr. ?

My first instructable would be to turn my Geomate jr. into a paper weight or door stop as the company (Apishere)has gone belly up! Does anyone know how to put geocache coordinates into the device. The software they provided doesn't work. I guess the problem I'm having is to get LOC files off of geocaching.com and into the device. I can use either chrome or MS Internet explorer. or Are there any tech savvy makers that can hack this device in other ways?

GPS Repeater from a Hacked Wirelss Router?

Hi all. I'm building a GPS Repeater. I'm wondering if any one has ever tried to use the LNA on the Xmit side of a wireless router to amplify and re-radiate a GPS signal? I'm still in the research stage, but I'm thinking I can take the signal from a active GPS USB patch antenna, tie it into the LNA input on the RX side of a wireless router (hack all signals in the router- we are just interested in the power and signal input). Schematics to a router would be great. I have 10+ years in RF, so I know that the Xmit on a router is so not 1.5GHZ range like GPS. A few mods to some componets can ceratinly help turn the center freq of the Xmit. on the router.   What are your thoughts?

USB GPS module tracking with custom application? Answered

I am working on getting some data acquisition integrated with a mini Baja car we're working on, and I would like to be able to track position with GPS, and hopefully speed too, but thats secondary to trying to track position. I'm going to mount a tablet netbook in the dash of the vehicle; can I use a USB GPS module, something like this:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=58-179-009&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=2#scrollFullInfo My main concern is it looks like these are made to work as Sat Navs with Microsoft Streets and Trips.  Instead, is there a way to just obtain the position data directly with custom software and record it either as a spreadsheet or graph, or even just something like a comma separated text file? I don't know anything about programming, so I will be finding a programmer to help me out, but I was wondering if this is the best way to go about this or are there gps modules made for this type of application? Thanks!

Idea: GPS sorta based off Access Points

Ok, here is what ive been wanting to create for awhile now and i know ill never have the smartness to build it myself so i thought it throw it out to the crowd Basically ive had in mind is a GPS program that works on any WifI device (laptop or WiFi mobile phone) and it use's triangulation from the signal strengths of three Access Points to tell you where you are at the moment The reason for this is is that at my Uni, i always see people getting lost because its so massive! and some people just can't read maps ( funny, i know) So if there was a program that used Access Points (there thousands of those in my uni) to pin point where you are Some basic Questions i guess - Which programming laungage? (Java?) - Can signal strength be broken down into small categories rather than Excellent, Very Good, Good, Poor - from that, would each Access Point have its own meters per unit estimate? This is probably silly of me to post this here because now someone else can create it (or if they have, someone link me haha) and call it their own :S Cheers Oily

GPS Locator??

My brother and I are currently working on an air launcher projectile.  It is highly likely that it could go .5 to 1.5 miles.  We have the ability to test at this distance, however locating this costly projectile is likely to be difficult.  We have looked into gps trackers, however the cheapest one that would actually work was 500 dollars and if we had that kind of money we wouldn't need a gps tracker on the thing in the first place.  I just wondered if there was a quick and dirty way to make a short range locator.  I have heard of little bluetooth tracking stickers, but I wasn't quite sure if that would work to find a 1 foot long projectile in a square mile field.  This locator needs to be extremely shock resistant, fit in a container 7" by 1.5" and must weigh a minimal amount. We also are looking hopefully below 100 @most 150 dollars.

Anyone got an idea for a simple GPS tracker please

A friend of mine  lives out in the countryside (about 25+ miles away from the nearest village). His dog occassionally goes off on the trail of Deer etc. Normally it stays around the farm but every now and then off it goes when we are all working and not keeping an eye on it. I was wondering if there is a simple/robust GPS tracker that could be attached to the dogs collar (a bit like the dog tag metal disks that are available to put the owners name and address on)? My idea is that the owner could look on his PC or mobile phone to see whereabouts the dog has got to and then go and get her. If anyone has any suggestions they would be very much appreciated, Bernard UK

Designing a micro GPS tracking device

Hello all, could anyone give me some insight to how complex the process of designing a very small GPS tracker which could be used to track lets say a person, which can post its co-ords to map software which is custom programmed etc in realtime. Hypothetical scenario: 1) Tracking someone who is on the move outdoors, only has very small pockets to fit the thing in.  2) The device must send co-ords to mapping software on a computer every 10 seconds maybe. 3) Someone can view there position on the map software in instantly to understand their exact position. Also how expensive would the whole process cost to manufacturer roughly? Thanks in advance and sorry for the vagueness in my question

Road Speed limit project

Hello, I'ts my first post here, so dont get mad if it's not the right subforum for this topic. I would just like some ideas/opinions for my project, because maybe I am forgetting something in addition to i am new with arduino the idea is a device that tracks a car's speeds and omits a message to the driving control authority, in case the car exceeds the speed limit. so What I am trying to build,is a Speed limit notification system that can sense my location and speed using GPS then compare it to defined speed for the current road using algorithm then send data over GSM network to my webserver or mobile phone warning me if i exceed the speed limit . What I need to achieve (and my plans to do so) are: 1. Arduino Uno 2. GPS module  http://www.zeroohm.ae/Adafruit-Ultimate-GPS-Breakout-66-channel-10-Hz-updates-Version-3?search=gps 3. GSM shield for network connection or sms sending http://www.zeroohm.ae/Arduino-GSM-Shield-2-integrated-antenna?search=gsm 4. GSM + GPS shield (Replace 2 and 3 ) http://www.waveshare.com/phone-shield-sim908.htm 5. so i will defined  maybe two or three roads using this techniques and define any speed i want http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=136265.0 Is these parts good ? is it ok to connect GPS module through gsm shield to Arduino ? or replace both with one shield (GPS and GSM ) I'm working on this project alone, maybe I have missed something, maybe theres a better solution for something, maybe someone else has some great ideas they are willing to share, regarding this idea and how to pull it off. Thanks all and sorry about my english
