1. ## GPS + MSP430G2452 UART Problem

No, I'm just storing the \$GPRMC string and parsing the coordinates, and UTC time and date from there.
2. ## GPS + MSP430G2452 UART Problem

The TI example UART ( which he is using) doesn't use the crystal. True, but I used the crystal to calibrate my DCO.
3. ## GPS + MSP430G2452 UART Problem

I calibrated the DCO but it still has the same problem. So, as rockets4kids said, the best solution(simplest) for my problem was to change the controllers. Works beautifully with the G2553 . Thank you all for your help!
4. ## GPS + MSP430G2452 UART Problem

Thanks for the reply! I still can't figure it out. Here's what I did so far: I had already tried changing the DCO, and I get better messages, but still not correct ones. If they're not exactly right, the GPS software doesn't know how to interpret them. I think I'm losing a character at almost periodical intervals(In bold what I'm losing): \$GPRMC,10212.00,V,,,,,,31051,,,N*70 \$GPVTG,,,,,,,,N*30 \$GPGGA,12912.00,,,,0,00,9.99,,,,,,*6F \$GPGS,A,1,,,,,,,,,,,,9.99,99.9999.99*30new line\$GPGSV,2,,08,05,,31,12,,,2,14,,,22,6,,,23*72 \$GPGSV,,2,08,17,,21,24,,,7,27,,,2632,,,24*7something in the check-sum; it should be 2 characters long \$GPGLL,,,,10291.00,V,N*4something in the check-sum; it should be 2 characters long I can only store about 200 characters into a string, and that's not enough for all of the messages. (I want to mention that I'm a beginner with MSP430) I don't understand why I can't declare a bigger string in the main function? I don't get any error when doing that, nor warnings, but the program won't print anything. Already did that, but I don't think it has any effect. Do you have any other suggestions? Thank you very much, Octav

6. ## LCD noob help

Thanks for the reply! I've just realized that, but it was simpler to wire the data pins as 3,4,2,5. I tried to build a void function that simply shifts the bits, but without too much luck. I think I'll start the code from scratch and write it in this curious way. Thanks again!
