GPS Receiver data not being displayed in minicom
I have a GPS receiver(ProGin SR-91), that communicates via the serial port(RS232) with the computer. I have Ubuntu Netbook Remix v10 installed, with minicom on it.
According to the device specifications, I have set the baud rate to 4800, with no parity, and 1 stop bit (8N1), and disabled software and hardware flow control in minicom. The GPS device supports NMEA 0183 protocol. After this, I started capture to 'minicom.cap'. But nothing is being displayed in the minicom terminal.
PS: The GPS receiver is indoors right now, away from direct line of sight with the sky, but still, should I get some data from it?
