**** REQUIRES ACTIVATION OF MOCK LOCATION, see below
WARNING: Problems where reported with android 4.3
GPSBridge connects on a TCP/UDP server to retrieve NMEA sentences from an external GPS so you can use other applications like Google Maps and Navionics with your external GPS.
Tested with GPSGate client (for NMEA TCP server services), Google Maps and Navionics.
GPSBridge requires that you enable mock locations found in settings/applications/development.
An anchor watch alert is also provided. More to come like distance to waypoint, cross-track error, etc !
If you receive this error:
java.lang.SecurityException: Requires ACCESS_MOCK_LOCATION secure setting
You need to change the MOCK location settings found in: settings/applications/development.
Your GPS must be connected on a computer or a serial(rs232) to wifi device (nmea 0183 = serial)
The tablet or phone must be on the same wifi network than the computer/device.
If using a computer, you need to use a software like gpsgate client to share the GPS information
across the wifi network. (GPSGate is now free of charge)
If using a device, GPSBridge should connect right on and get the NMEA sentences.
The device/gpsgate address and port must be configured in GPSBridge.
Go to your android settings and pair your android device with the BlueTooth NMEA transmitter.
Start iNmeaLogger, select til right Bluetooth device and press start.
This will record a log in 30 seconds and enable you to send that log to us for debugging, incase some NMEA informations are missing or are misinterpreted.

Don't let others know, where you are! Build your own TCP/IP-Online-Trackingsystem with "myGPS4u" and "myGPScollector"!
The "myGPS4u" client software is an ideal complement to the free listener program "myGPScollector". It reads NMEA position data from the GPS receiver and transmits it in predefined intervals to a user defined server on the Internet.
With only a few mouse clicks, you install the software from the Android MarketTM, on your existing smartphones. In conjunction with the GPS receiver, GPRS or UMTS, the data will be sent over the Internet, to a computer running "myGPScollector", which can receive data from hundreds of senders synchronous. It then creates files for Google Earth(TM) (KML) or other applications (DELIMITED), like driver's logs. Now you can track the senders positions live. You can send 4 predefined and 1 adhoc state to your headquarters.
ATTENTION: The program runs only in conjunction with the freeware "myGPScollector"!!! You can download it for free from our website. Also have a look at free "myTrackConverter", for showing your tracks with elevation profile and speed diagram.
An ideal software solution for tracking vehicles (taxis), people, sports, dog squads, geocaching, theft ...
