DG100 Control

DG100 Control is a simple progam to control the settings of the GlobalSat DG-100. It is based on work originally made by Mirko Parthey, and the DG-100 code used by gpsbabel, which is also based on Mirko's work with additional enhancements from Robert Lipe (and probably others).

DG100 Control consists of two frontends: dg100ctl, which is a basic console program, and qt-dg100ctl which is a graphical version of dg100ctl. Their feature-set is almost the same for the two:

  • Configuration of speed and distance thresholds.
  • Configuration of the three log interval modes. Can set both time and distance intervals.
  • Toggle WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS mode.
  • Toggle GPS-Mouse mode (experimental, dg100ctl only).

Although both dg100ctl and qt-dg100ctl are usable, they are still in the early stages of development.


Current version is 0.1. See launchpad entry for more information.
