Getting Intra-Maps roam to interface with internal GPS

2018-05-27 14:58:43

I've got Intramaps Roam installed on a Panasonic Toughpad fz-g1 with integrated u-blox M8 gps.

When I open up GPSviewer I can see my position, everything seems fine. When I enable GPS with intra-maps roam, it says 'GPS Active' but the lat lon reading is 0,0.

I'm connected on COM3 with 9600bps.

Any ideas what's going wrong?

This has been patched in a newer (unreleased) version of Roam. You can build Roam from source if you want to try it out, or grab a build from here

It seems those GPS get the GLONASS messages as well as the normal GPS ones. The GPS module in QGIS didn't handle both of the messages. I have patch Roam to handle both.

I've got Intramaps Roam installed on a Getac F110 with integrated gps.

When I open GPS controller it is OK: I see my position.

It uses COM30, 4800 bps

However in Intramaps, I read "GPS not active". How to activate ?

Thanks for your help
