  1. No, I'm just storing the $GPRMC string and parsing the coordinates, and UTC time and date from there.
  2. The TI example UART ( which he is using) doesn't use the crystal. True, but I used the crystal to calibrate my DCO.
  3. 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. 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 th
  5. Hello, I am using the example code from TI for UART at 9600baud. I have connected a GPS receiver and I'm trying to get the NMEA data from the receiver on a serial monitor. However the received NMEA messages are degraded (and I can't use any GPS Software), for example: Degraded: $GPRMC,V,,,,,,,,,N*3 $GPTG,,,,,,,,N*0 $GPGS,A,1,,,,,,,,,,,99.9,99.9,99.9930 $GGSV,1,,02,17,,26,3,,,33*A $GPLL,,,,,V,N*6 Correct: $GPRMC,,V,,,,,,,,,,N*53 $GPVTG,,,,,,,,,N*30 $GPGGA,,,,,,0,00,99.99,,,,,,*48 $GPGSA,A,1,,,,,,,,,,,,,99.99,99.99,99.99*30 $GPGSV,1,1,00*79 $GPGLL,,,,,,V,N*64 T
  6. 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!
  7. Hi! First of all I want to say that I'm a beginner with ucontrollers. I recently got hold of a launchpad and I had a LCD at home and I managed to write on it, using the code and the pin definitions from TI. However I want to build a shield and it would be easier to use other definitions. I've attached the code and wrote in the comments where i changed the code. Could somebody please help me and explain why I'm only getting strange characters on my LCM? Thanks! #include #define LCM_DIR P1DIR #define LCM_OUT P1OUT #define LCM_PIN_RS
  8. Hello, and greetings from Bucharest Romania. I'm quite new to micro controllers and recently purchased a launchpad. I intend to connect it to a relay and control my outdoor lighting. I will also be using an LCM to program the time when to start and stop the installation. Where should I post questions? Thanks!
