GPS 2 IP App Details

Do you need GPS NMEA location data for your computer or other device - 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 using either wifi or Bluetooth. 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. Apart from navigation software, other 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. Different NMEA messages can be selected for transmission according to your requirements. 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 (for example once every minute). GPS2IP is *not* able to send your GPS location to an iPad running the Apple turn-by-turn navigation app. It is designed for enthusiasts, or more navigation software that can use an external GPS unit.

  • Doesnt work

    By Jake3223456
    Does not work, no documentation, emails go unanswered, support website blows up on smtp errors.
  • Works great!

    It took me about 5 minutes to configure and that was only because I didn't configure the port settings correctly myself. Once I did it worked awesome!
  • Wardriving with kali linux and an iPhone 6

    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!
  • Worthless

    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

    Does what it promises, subject to iOS and hardware limitations. No complaints.

    Works perfectly! Thanks.
  • Can be improved. It is a great idea

    By masmor
    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
