Re: GPS via UART on Jessie-Pi3 Has Anything changed ?

I had searched for GPS and UART as that is what I had used to find my answers before. Never crossed my mind it was the Pi3, hence I assumed it was a change in Raspian and posted in the Raspian section to get everyones knowledge. Which has worked :D even if it is not actually Raspian that has forced ...

Re: GPS via UART on Jessie-Pi3 Has Anything changed ?

Thanks, doesn't explain my garbage but I'll switch to serial0 next from s0 and see if that helps. I'll also recheck go get my Pi2 back from wherever it ended up and check it still works there. I know stuff changes but it starts to render these thing useless in education when things are not compatibl...

Re: GPS via UART on Jessie-Pi3 Has Anything changed ?

OK thank it worked, sort o. For a few reading it gets the ifo but it skips and misses lots of readings. Looking in cat output after a few reading a jumble of mess comes through, then data then mess etc. Also not tried this back on the PiZero and A+ yet but hopefully will once I've sorted this jumble...

Re: GPS via UART on Jessie-Pi3 Has Anything changed ?

Is this change documented anywhere and is it just the Pi3 that needs this as that buggers up compatibility if it is hardware and not Raspian. As I'm writing it on the Pi3 as it's easier and plan to move it to A+ and Zero's and some might be run for testing on B2's before going to the smaller devices...

GPS via UART on Jessie-Pi3 Has Anything changed ?

Hi, I have been using my uBLOX GPS via a UART connection on the Pi. All I've been doing is looking and playing on a raspberry B+ an B2 (a few months back Jessie last time) all working nicely. No coding as yet. So today I set it up as usual on my usual way with a new fresh up to date Jessie on a nice...

Re: Raspberry Pi B+/GPS over serial

Did you managed to get geotagging working? I wish to geotag the RasPi Camera info from my GPS data (ublox viad UART) Both are working, but what do you use to Geotag the images when taken? In see in the camera I can use EXIF, just wondered if there was already some code (python 3 pref) to take the UA...

Re: Raspberry Pi A+ USB port bent pins

I would certainly say this is not our fault. It should be able to take a connector with no issues. I've never seen it happen to a USB in all my time. Given these are standard WiFi and keyboard/mouse connector (Dell and branded wifi). Also given they are designed for the education environment above a...

Re: GPSD + Jessie lite + rpi0 + ublox Neo-6m gps - [SOLVED]

Been having the exact same problems for a while and have been going round and round. Gpsmon was always fine, but cgps etc never worked.

I'll try that very last bit.

(Only tried on A+/B+/B2 since Jessie was released)

Re: Astro Pi Temperature Sensor Reading

Having of course the same problem I tried the ribbon cable and doesn't really help much. I found if I use a 1Wire DS18B20 as well, it much better and takes little room on top or even using the longer probe style. For a few quid for 5 of them it may make your calibration better. (Given you can read f...

Re: Sensehat & Rasp Pi B

B+ and 2B will work out of the box with a new Raspian image (did for me via Noobs recent)

Doubt you would be buying/getting B's (original style with less GPIO pins) at this time.

Datalogging, Seeing data/realtime graphs on teachers comp.

Hello, We have been using the Pi's for a while now (Rockets and onboard CanSat style datalogging, nothing has quite worked well yet but that's due to learning). Anyway, Since I now have a few A+ and SenseHats I intend to use them in the Science classroom for datalogging. But we need to see the data,...

Re: Raspberry Pi A+ USB port bent pins

I've just bought 3 A+'s for our school projects and while setting up we were having USB problems, noticed on has a lot of the pins bent backwards another one bent back and of course this has written them off and my B+ and the older B has not had any problems. Luckily the third A+ and hasn't yet. Do ...

Similar problem here, Just setup a B+ for the first time (Christmas 2014 if anyone searches this) and kids noticed Minecraft, so we are following the official website learning resources http://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/getting-started-with-minecraft-pi/worksheet.md and it mentions use IDLE not ID...
