    Hi,
    i have a usb gps and working only with ”You are here gps” an every time i have to open app and click connect.

    Do you know how to find my gps and set corectly , and working without this app.

    A have android 4.4.2.

    On Odroid forum i found this instruction:
    I have connected my GPS by USBSerial and changed only two settings in build.prop:
    Code: Select all

    ro.kernel.android.gps=/dev/ttyACM0
    ro.kernel.android.gps.speed=115200
    

    But i cant find my gps , how is connected.

    Thanks a lot.

    USB GPS units use the mock location provider, which was designed for testing and development, but has been used to provide real data.
    I don’t know of any way to use a USB unit without a helper program of some sort, in your case it’s “You are here GP

    Ok, Thanks Eric.

    I start to hate android :).
    It’s so hard to add or change something …. 🙁
    And is hard to find information also..

    There is a LOT to learn when using it as more than just a phone or tablet. Lots of things in the developer docs which can be overwhelming.
    It’s a great platform and offers a lot of potential but also has a lot of convoluted documentation to study through

    You might be able to fix your issue with tasker, but I’m not sure. I don’t really know a lot about tasker, just that it can do a lot of cool things.

    Maybe you can find another program that does the same thing but uses a service.
    I don’t have a USB GPS unit to test with at the moment. I’d like to offer it as a supported option, but without hardware I can’t do much about it.

    Awesome. I haven’t gotten to the GPS yet, but I still think I’ll be able to use the Mock Location Provider and the Arduino to provide real GPS data.
    I don’t know if you’ve read about the shield I’m designing, but an option that it’s got is a GPS receiver intended for devices without GPS, like our UDOO boards.
