brilliant driver :)

It works good with Royaltek and I receive loads of TMCs, but I receive only cryptic data in GNS mode.
Is there any chance that you decode/implement the GNS protocol as well as some of us are using Navigon 7 that only takes GNS?

Cheers

awesome app , just a shame i wont be able to use it as tomtom on the omnia2 does not have tmc functions.

actually all tomtom versions on a pda / phone dont have tmc functions.

and i didnt / dont like igo so tobad for me :)



You could also try Sygic or Navigon, as TomTom for PDA is ancient in comparison to iGO, Sygic or Navigon imo

Unfortunately I'm not responsible for the TMC protocols - it is done by hypergps.dll , so please contact BeemerTPPC at xda.

Yea i was looking at sygic but im not sure if it can work with this TMC app ?

Navigon is way off on the routes i do all the time when i last tested it a year ago maybe it has become better now ?

There is no any special in the implementation - any GPS sw. must work with it which can read Royaltek or GNS formatted TMC data on a serial port, so I think yes.

Issued a new version 1.3. The debug code removed and there are two settings in registry which can be modify: HKLM\Software\gfmapi\ms, which is the cycle time in msec - in this frequency will be queried the chip for valid RDS data; slower (bigger number) reduces the power consumption, quicker yield more TMC messages in a given time. The rssi is the minimum seek RSSI threshold, the automatic scan stops when this value is reached. But until I will find the reason why the auto scan take such a ling time, I removed this and implement a single channel step instead, which is quick but it takes long time for iGO to scan the full band...

To enable GNS TMC you need to set TMC mode in HyperGPS to TMC+GPS, then it should work fine.

Hey guys, first: Great job!!

Second: Do i have to plug the earpice for enhance the radio signal? Or it should work without the earpice?
My problem is: i went to phj page, downloaded and installed all the stuff.
Then i opened the HyperGPS, enabled TMC at COM4.
Opened iGO, and told it to look for TMC hardware. Then i receive a MSG that TMC is not available... Is this due a lack of radio signal or my city does not have TMC?

You need excellent signal to receive TMC information, so you need to connect an antenna - not necessary the earpice, but a half meter cable connected somehow to the outest part of the jack ( I use a normal jack cutted at the first tag).

Not really need that, the HyperGPS has a switch program, which starting the TMC reception, start the navigation program, wait until finished and unload the TMC driver. Please study this link, at the HGPS_Switch:

So I assume your dll sends the radio data to HyperGPS without any difference regarding Royaltek or GNS?



To enable GNS TMC you need to set TMC mode in HyperGPS to TMC+GPS, then it should work fine.

That is exactly what I did.

The strage thing is that it works with TMC & Royaltek where I receive those
$RTRDS and $RTTMC signals in HyperGPS test mode.
When I switch to TMC+GPS & GNS I only receive blocks of hex code. I'm just wondering as I read plenty of comments by happy GNS/Navigator users that HyperGPS and the GNS decoding works perfectly with Navigator 7.

Any ideas?
