Which GPS receiver can be used with Raspberry USB or GPIO connection? I want to buy a receiver with a magnetic compass.
I understand the presence of an accurate magnetic compass in the GPS receiver is critically necessary? KRAKENSDR will accept packets from gpsd?
Any GPS receiver that’s compatible with gpsd should work, although we haven’t tested all of them so can’t be totally sure. I’ve not tested a GPS/magnetic compass hybrid device yet though, I was under the impression from it’s documentation that gpsd does not support such devices.
A magnetic compass is not necessary as you can get the heading from the GPS while moving. But if you intend on not moving and don’t want to manually input a heading, a compass could help.
