Step 1. Install the supporting serial libraries on the Raspberry Pi:

       sudo apt-get install setserial netcat screen

Step 2. Copy the script to your raspberry pi.

Step 3. Change the permissions on the script so it will run:

     chmod 777

Step 4. Start the script from the command prompt:


Running gps2udp

Running gps2udp

The script makes it simple to connect to the GPS Click board on Raspbian Linux.

Connecting to the UDP socket

Once you have started the script on the Raspberry Pi you can connect to the gps datastream using a UDP socket from any computer on your network.

Viewing UDP data in mikroC

The easiest way to view a UDP datastream is to use the mikroC UDP terminal program. It is found in the Tools > UDP Terminal menu.

Open the UDP Terminal

Open the UDP Terminal

Open the mikroC Tools Menu and start the UDP terminal.

Start by typing in the ip address for the raspberry pi. In my case this is

Enter the port 36700 for the UDP connection.

To start the connection you need to send a bit of data over the UDP socket. Type "1" in the send text field and click the "send" button. GPS data should start flowing into the receive window.

Connect to the Raspberry Pi.

Connect to the Raspberry Pi.

You can connect to the Raspberry Pi using the UDP terminal.

Linux/Mac/Cygwin Command Line You can also connect to the Raspberry PI hosted GPS click from your desktop system with a tool called netcat. Tip: You need to have the full-featured version of nc / netcat installed that supports UDP connections.

Viewing UDP Data

Viewing UDP Data

The Linux terminal window can be used to viewing the live UDP data too.

My Raspberry Pi has an ip address of and the UDP port is 36700.

To start the desktop connection to the Raspberry Pi hosted GPS click open the terminal and type in:

     netcat -u 36700


     nc -u 36700

Once the connection has been made you need to press the enter key once to start the UDP data flowing. When you are done you can close the network connection on the desktop by pressing Control-C.
