finding your way home with satnav linux?


Hello all,

Santa very kindly bought me a Sony NAV-U NV-U92T Satnav system and I would like to be able to update it and so forth using my Ubuntu laptop.

My computer seems to recognize it as a pda here is the dmesg output:

Code:
[ 1439.484000] usb 2-2.1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4

[ 2116.456000] ISO 9660 Extensions: Microsoft Joliet Level 1

Any ideas on what I could do next?

Thanks, trscookie.

Well, it will look like a serial port at /dev/ttyUSB0. It probably speaks standard GPS. Try connecting to it at 4800 baud with minicom and see if it spits out strings that start with "$GPS".

Also, check out this site: http://www.kh-gps.de/nmea.faq
