I wrote the GPS Com component many years ago. You can download it here:

Delphi GPS Component 1.0

That will provide some insight into Object Pascal.

Surprisingly, the Delphi 5 code still runs on Windows 7.

Maybe you can use it as is.

Sorry Mr.Umbra, may I know why the time in NMEA format in the log file generated is different from the time at my current place? Is there any setting I need to do so that I will get the accurate time and date?
I look forward your reply, thank you so much. =)

The time in the NMEA format is "probably" UTC time. If you look, the only thing different should be the hour, not the minutes or seconds. Your computer adjusts the UTC time for the location you set in it. An example is Eastern Standard Time, which is UTC -5, which means subtract 5 hours from the Universal Time.

Dear sir,
Thanks for your reply.
And one more question, the LogGPS software is written to baud rate 4800? How I gonna change it become 9600 in order to make it compatible with my GPS module?
I look forward your reply, thank you so much. =)
MrUmbra
Try this:

a) Create a desktop shortcut to run LogGps.exe
b) Right click shortcut icon and edit the shortcut properties:

Type a space then add 9600 after the execution path

Hey guys,

I'm building a batch/ Vb script for testing Access Points.

It runs a command to get the mac of the AP's wireless card then it does a command to run Iperf bandwidth testing.

I also need it to capture the lat and long and log it to a text file.

I'm using the BU-353 GPS receiver.

What I need help with is, I need an app I can run from command line that will pull the Lat long off of the GPS adapter and log it to a text file and then close, so that I can run it from command line each time I want the new set of coordinates.

I see that some of the stuff that was presented on this thread like the Triplog.zip is very very close to what I need. But I need this to be able to be automated by a batch script so I need something that does not require user input to run and then closes its self once the lat lng have been written to a text file.

Hopefully someone can help me with this as I have spent about a week trying to find what I need and the closest match was on this site.

thanks in advance for any help

Hi Mr.Umbra,

New to GPS World, but am very interested in the simplified logger "LOGGPS" you designed.

Is there a way for me to expand the decimal points on the non NMEA setting to 5 decimal places ? (roughly 1m accuracy in metric terms).

FYI, The text file output can be read directly into ArcGIS, and plot xy updates the layer on the fly, which removes the need for me to convert from NMEA to shapefile.

Also, does this version support modifying via command to allow for the Com to be defaulted? On my device it is com port 3

It has been a while since anyone has replied to this thread, but i thought i would try my luck anyway...

Can TripLogV2 be run as a service and the comm port preconfigured?

I assume you are doing Windows. You didn't specify the format details but you can try the simple utility I wrote for you. I can change the record format without too much effort. The default is GPS on a com port; NMEA at 4800 baud but you can change the baud by specifying it as a command line parameter.

Hello, i just used this behind a command button in access thanks! although off topic do you know of a way to automatically load the lat/longs back into the database ie without writing another command button to load from the csv

Hi MrUmbra,

I was wondering if you might be able to help me out. I have downloaded the program linked and it works great. I was wondering if there was a command line switch to start logging automatically upon loading? I was hoping to use task scheduler to run your program to log GPS data. Also how do I change the time? It seems the time date stamp is not for my time zone, CST.

Your other programs log automatically however they do not date time stamp, thats very important to me. I hope you can provide me with some help. Thank you and have a great day!

This might be outdated question but I just found this site...
I have a tablet (Win8) installed on motorcycle handlebar and TripLogV2 works fine. Is it possible to add date and time into csv-file as separate columns?
LogGPS is running fine too but producing enermous amount of data during a long ride. It's almost impossible to extract out needed locations.
So kind of TripLogV2/LogGPS combination recording one position/date/time when enter-button is pressed would fine and usable with gloves on.

The log probably has date/time data although it may be somewhat hidden/obscure.
If you open the data file that is created in something like Excel or Open Office, you can see what is there and hide/reveal data columns (or rows for that matter). Excel will try hard to open files that are data matrices if you allow it to open files with any extension by inviting Excel to open files named [your file name].*. The "*" immobilizes Excel's default tendency to open only Excel-generated files.
