Configuring GPS Receiver

IMPORTANT: GPS functionality is available to Pro License users only.

To perform GPS surveys using TamoGraph, you need a source of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data. TamoGraph supports two types of such data sources:

  • A GPS receiver. TamoGraph supports any GPS receiver as long as it is NMEA-compliant. This includes almost all Bluetooth and USB GPS receivers; such receivers communicate with the computer over a virtual COM port (also referred to as a “serial port”). Unlike GPS receivers, GPS navigators (which typically have displays) are usually not NMEA-compliant and therefore cannot be used with TamoGraph unless special software is used. You can use Garmin devices; however, you will have to use either Spanner, a freeware utility by Garmin, or GPSGate Client, a commercial utility, to make your Garmin navigator NMEA-compliant.
  • On Windows only: a Windows GNSS sensor. Such sensors are integrated into many new Windows laptops and tablets. Note that there are location sensors that do not use satellite navigation. TamoGraph supports only satellite-based (GPS or GLONASS) sensors; other types of location sensors are not supported.
