Tips and questions relating to the GPS modules from SFE
By yashu
Is it possible to use the MN5010 in a solicited message comm protocol mode?

That is... the MN5010 does NOT output a continuous data stream which has to be demodulated and parsed by a host microcontroller.....

and instead, the MN5010 will receive message requests from the host and subsequently reply with the appropriate requested data.

If so, can this solicited data include Lat,Long,Elev etc...

I do not see a 'hi level comm' arbitration discussion in the SiRF binary protocol doc.

Any help is appreciated.
