App Description

Do you need GPS NMEA location data for your computer - maybe to use some mapping or navigation software? Until now, you couldn't get external access to the GPS inside your iPhone, but now with GPS2IP you can stream the information in realtime to solve your requirements. The iPhone becomes a GPS server, and to get the information, you just connect to your iPhone. Alternatively, you can also push the NMEA data to any online server, using either TCP or UDP and process the information however you want. Each device can send a unique identifier, so that if you have multiple devices you can determine which device is sending what messages. GPS2IP now can be configured to restart automatically after your iOS device restarts, so you'll always keep track of your position. Methods for connection include telnet or netcat, or many terminal programs. Some navigation software such as MacEnc can read from an IP address natively. Setting up a connection between MacEnc and GPS 2 IP is easy. Also, starting gpsd with "gpsd tcp://192.168.1.70:11123" means you'll be receiving the data very simply. Different NMEA messages can be selected for transmission, and more will be added in the coming months. One non-standard message that GPS2IP transmits that is very useful for sailing is $PASHR. You can plot your location on GoogleEarth by using the KML format, or the portable GPX format. GPS 2 IP can run when the iPhone sleeps to support constant location reporting, but be aware that continued use of the GPS when running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. If your device dies or you turn it off when it was running, GPS2IP now automatically resumes sending the location. Beware that this will decrease battery life - we recommend keeping it charging if possible. GPS2IP can also be configured to output data at a selectable frequency (say once every minute).

    I used this app to geolocation 802.11 access points. For those who know there are a lot of android apps to do this. I use an iPhone 6 with gps2ip, a raspberry pi with Kali, and 3 USB wireless adapters. Work great!

    Doesn't do what it says. No way to trial it so I just wasted $7. Was a gamble but here is a warning for future lookers, look elsewhere.
  • Fantastic

    the timestamp provided on the NMEA messages must be the time provided by the GPS and not the iphone time! and the timestamp must be provided with milliseconds or less if possible.
  • Great

    Had a small issue getting grlevelx software to work with it due to the picky nature in which grlevelx reads NMEA sentences. Within a day of contacting the author he has a fix and has submitted it for approval. Author gets 5 stars because of his fantastic communication and support. Highly recommended app. Update: New version updated. Works perfectly with Grlevelx software.
  • Works great with PolarCom!

    Most navigation apps use iPhone as a repeater/receiver. With this I can now stream NMEA data from the iPhone to other apps, works great! My cell provider assigns private IP addresses, was initially having trouble connecting. Tech Support was fantastic, taking a lot of time to help not only from their side but also interfacing to the product I was trying to connect to (PolarCom / PolarView). Got it all connected and works great! Highly recommended.
