    Hi,

    I have a Microcontroller 16F883 (PIN RX) connected a GPS module A2235h (PIN TX), and I want to use the software GPSCockpit or similar to read the information. How can I do it or which code do I have to use?

    Thanks,

    Llimo

    AFAIK "GPSCockpit" is an app for the iPhone and such, and is not a suitable display.

    While that PIC seems to have plenty of housepower to read the GPS data stream you should consider another device for outputting the data, such as an alphanumeric LDC display.

    There are no standard "codes" to do things like this. You will probably find examples on each of the individual pieces but no coherent application code.

    That you need write yourself.

    OK, so you have a windows version, that's good. Give it NMEA data over a serial port and it should work.

    If your GPS receiver has such then you don't need the PIC, just an RS-232 level shifter as most basic GPS modules have the correct serial data but at logic voltage levels.
