NMEA and ublox GPS parser for Arduino, configurable to use as few as 10 bytes of RAM
This fully-configurable Arduino library uses minimal RAM, PROGMEM and CPU time, requiring as few as 10 bytes of RAM, 866 bytes of PROGMEM, and less than 1mS of CPU time per sentence.
It supports the following protocols and messages:
This means that GLRMC, GBRMC or BDRMC, GARMC and GNRMC from the latest GPS devices (e.g., ublox M8N) will also be correctly parsed. See discussion of Talker IDs in Configurations.
Most applications can be fully implemented with the standard NMEA messages above. They are supported by almost all GPS manufacturers. Additional messages can be added through derived classes (see ublox and Garmin sections below).
Most applications will use this simple, familiar loop structure: ``` NMEAGPS gps; gps_fix fix;
In an attempt to be reusable in a variety of different programming styles, this library supports: * resource-constrained environments (e.g., ATTINY targets) * sync or async operation (reading in
loop()vs interrupt processing) * event or polling (deferred handling vs. continuous calls in
loop()) * coherent fixes (merged from multiple sentences) vs. individual sentences * optional buffering of fixes * optional floating point * configurable message sets, including hooks for implementing proprietary NMEA messages * configurable message fields * multiple protocols from same device * any kind of input stream (Serial, NeoSWSerial, I2C, PROGMEM arrays, etc.)
