I have not been able to get a reliable connection to the XGPS150a, but here are a few things to try:
Turn the XGPS150a on and make sure it is set to Andriod (as opposed to iPhone) mode.

You should see the XGPS150a and an address in the form of XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
Code: Select all
sudo rfcomm connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX 0 &
Wait 20-40 seconds and you should hopefully see a connection response.
Now you can enter:
If you are lucky, you'll see the output from the GPS device.
Search on "raspberry gps rfcomm" for more information. I'd love to be able to get this working consistently, but so far no joy.
