GPS shield problems

by thefatmoop on Tue Aug 19, 2008 4:47 pm

I went through the instructions on

http://ladyada.net/make/gpsshield/gpstest.html
put the the softserial 2 folders to
C:\arduino\arduino-0011\hardware\libraries

I also changed buffer to 32

I get this error when I check the programming from the example

java.lang.StackOverflowError



>< any ideas? here is screeny

Problemo numbero 2o

Okies so i got my gps+shield in the mail. I tested the GPS using the serial cable normally used to program the boarduino w/e... Everything worked, and the gps had a lock VERY quickly compared to my car gps...

i'm just trying out the logging features. I downloaded all the libraries, changed the buffer to 32.

i've tried both example codes from
http://www.ladyada.net/make/gpsshield/download.html

Neither one will light up L1 or L2, It doesn't log to the SD card.
GPSlogger

writing to GPSLOG00.TXT

ready!



$PSRF151,1*3F

$PSRF103,4,0,1,1*21

$PSRF103,3,0,0,1*27

$PSRF103,2,0,0,1*26

$PSRF103,0,0,0,1*24


It never goes to GPSLOG01.TXT or 02 03...


Tried 3 different SD cards made from different companies 2x 256 and 1x 1gig all formated in "FAT"(16) and i even did the "safely remove..." cause linux doesn't do the buffer.. arduino prob doesn't
