Any way to get NMEA string or PRN from GPS?

Postby Teario » Wed Jun 10, 2009 11:35 pm

Hi guys,

I am aware it is possible to obtain the postion information from the internal GPS on the Android phones by using LocationListener. However I actually want to get the NMEA strings that the GPS decide will be outputting, is there any way I can do this? Alternatively, is there a way I can obtain the PRN numbers of the satellites being used in the position fix?

I have seen in the documentation there is a GpsStatus class which may be able to get the PRNs, however it seems it is only available in 1.5 and I have yet to figure out how I use it.
