Hi, I want use GPS Stream widget for my project. I am using a Sparkfun ESP8266 thing board. The GPS module I am using Grove GPS module http://wiki.seeed.cc/Grove-GPS/. Can someone put a link to guide how to use this widget with the board.
It will also nice if a guide to use this widget with a mob phone GPS receiver is available.
I searched from the community page but was not able to find one appropriate thread.
I copied it from OP. As I didn’t knew that this widget works with mob phone GPS so I asked about both esp8266 and mob phone internal GPS receiver. Though as I am working with esp8266 so ask it at 1st place.
I cab write here again please if you can provide a link about how to use this widget will great help for me.
The GPS widgets in the app are for the phone device GPS only… In the case of Stream it supplies the phone’s coordinates to the MCU hardware for you to use in code.
Trigger can be used to “trigger” an action via virtual pin when phone enters or leaves a designated area.
All widgets have a little [i] to the right of them in the Widget Box that will provide information about it’s function. (so even if they are not in the DOCs, as the GPS ones are not?? @Dmitriy … there is still info and examples on how to use them).
Any MCU mounted GPS device will have to be utilised by whatever library, code and command sets supplied by it’s manufacturer… and is not directly Blynk relevant.
thank you very much for the reply
OP I mean original post !
Is not there any widget in blynk available which can receive coordinates either from a mob phone internal gps receiver or from mcu and renders it on maps. I mean kind of a maps widget that can be used on user interface of blynk along other controls.
Yes… and you are the Original Poster of the Original Post in this thread If you want to refer to someone else’s post, then please include a link to it… otherwise this is a big forum and only some of us read and remember everything (but not me )
As for the rest of your question… Not yet. I don’t think Blynk developers are interested in merging the functionality of every single app out there (i.e. GPS mapping app) into Blynk (probably just 90% ) but perhaps one of these days.
EDIT - @Dmitriy Doh… That’s it, I either stop answering or learn to type MUCH faster (or just look up from keyboard once in awhile)
Double EDIT - @Dmitriy Opps, you were answering me, not the OP… Got it
OK, thank you for the info. May be some work around in blynk provided options will help to do this maps thing once I learn use of this widget. Please don’t forget to post a link for guide for the widget.
