There is also a mode where the temp sensor is the main input device (/rxen=?).    In this mode you can also use the /en=?? command to access a second temperature sensor.

This mode does not seem to work.  I had the env sensor working on com15 via USB  (/en=15)  Shut it down and changed the command line to /rxen=15.  Main screen says com1: then says serial port device not found.  It there a limitation I am not aware of?  It shows the system clock but not environmental information.

Oops...  try:   /rxen /15

Also, when using an environmental sensor the zoomed digital clock display (ZC) should also show the sensor readings...

I REALLY hate being woken up a millisecond early.  Or in some place I didn't go to sleep in...

USB-PA does not seem to be available anymore.  Do you have something similar that you are recommending now?

Currently supported sensors are the USB sensors
//             from dogratian.com  amd the LFS10x devices from
//             LookingForSolutions.com (like the LFS104BW)

DId you contact him to confirm?  I've seen him run out of stock on his Ebay site fairly regularly...

You can use the cheap STLINK clone dongles (STMF103 in there, I think) for all sorts of other stuff, including a USB temp/humidity sensor. You can also make them into Yubikeys.

Thanks for this... I was wondering how to get the dogration working!  I didn't see much about it except that it was supposed to work so I bought one.

The code (v6.14?) on eevblog is the latest version (both Windows and Linux and macOS)

I was getting ready to release a new version that supports some new devices, but my latest source code is at a locked down university.

Yep, try it!   It does take a while, though.

I try to use Lady Heather 6.14 with ZED-F9T (ublox GPS module) with the following command line:
HEATHER.EXE /3 /br=115200 /rxu /tz=+2eet/eest /vh
Date/time and position data are correct but no satellite info is displayed.
Please help.

Texaspyro has said somewhere, a beta code that corrects the problem exists but it's locked up in his secret laboratory at a university.  (under lock down)

感谢!thank you!我的三星STP 2878 LF已经可以正常显示了!之前5.0是不能正常显示的。
我把HEATHER6.14与5.0的放在一个压缩包内,以方便他人直接下载使用,再次感谢EEVblog电子社区论坛。
我英语很差,网页是通过翻译过来的,所以抱歉不能以英语交流,给朋友们带来不便了。

Hi,
thanks for adding Trueposition gpsdo to Heather.  I have made some modification to the source code to make the experience better. I am attaching diff for these changes.

1. initialization. There are 3 cases that need to be addressed:
- GPSDO is started in boot mode. In this case you need to send "$PROCEED" wait 1/2-1second, and then send initialization commands ($PPSDBG, etc)
- GPSDO is already started and tracking, in this case you just need to send initialization commands ($PPSDBG, etc.)
- Heather is started BEFORE GPSDO is powered on, in this case heather will notice BOOT GETVER response - needs proceed and then later initialization commands.

So i have moved the initialization commands to single function that gets called twice. Once for BOOT response and once in receiver initialization.

This function will send PROCEED wait 1000ms and send initialization commands. PROCEED command doesn't exist in main program. If gpsdo was already initialized, it is bacically nop (with wait).

2. Initialization command $PPSDBG needs parameter.
Parameter 1 = enable, parameter 0 = disable. The command parser in this GPSDO is dumb, it will look at fixed place for the character '1', if not enough characters it will just use character from LAST message.

3.  EXTSTATUS:
this response contains data copied from NMEA message $GPGGA, number of sats used and DOP (Hdop in 2d fix mode, and PDOP in 3d fix mode) as provided by Furuno module.
temperature is not taken from this message anymore.

4. PPSDBG:
Temperature is taken from this response.
This response also contains TRAIM information as provided in Furuno's GPrrm message. I have added parsing/displaying for these stats as well.

5. UPDATE FLASH command doesn't exist.
This is not command but response that GPSDO has written flash. I have commented this out. Not needed. Whenever you update nonvolatile parameters they get saved into Flash memory.

I have reverse engineered the firmware of the MCU used in the GPSDO and i have tried to fix available documentation:
https://github.com/robots/trueposctrl/blob/master/GPSDO_commandset.h
Some commands are still not added: like Jam sync ($JAM, without parameter). There are lot of interesting commands like: $SPIW x - write dac, $FxRxxH - toggle holdover, $F - send command to gps receiver, "$EBG *" - monitor gps messages.
