WARNING: Problems where reported with android 4.3
GPSBridge Boat Edition add some fonctionnalities to GPSBridge standard edition. A visual anchor watch (over google maps) is added and a Visual bearing to destination is also added.
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 !
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.
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.
