Yes, the power problem triggered a face-palm moment that hit me about an hour after I posted that message.


Thanks, Fred, for the link to GridConnect devices. Interesting solution.

Yes, and there are various ways to pair devices (usually involving a pushbutton or jumpers), but you're still going to need power to both devices, so it's not that big a gain for many users.

My next generation trackers will have WiFi as well, so for the host connection I'm hoping to get more users to move to an AGWPE type TCP connection.

At the risk of hijacking this thread, would it be possible to implement a Bluetooth connection between a TNC and a GPS receiver? In other words, would it be possible to use Bluetooth to eliminate the wired RS232 serial connection between the TNC and the GPS receiver? Since neither device would have a user interface that understands Bluetooth, how would the pairing be configured?
