      Hi!

      I had two busy months, I've been writting my PhD-Thesis, and another publication and yeap... sorry! I forgot to update the blog!

      Three weeks ago, I received a Ublox NEO-M8N GPS and I tested it with the code that I had. I said it should work, but as you know it always needs some modifications! The NEO-M8N supports GLONASS and GPS, so the $GP changes to $GN, e.g. $GPGGA (GPS) > $GNGGA (GPS+GLONASS).

      The following changes were added:

      # lines 604-606:

      Hi again!... First of all:

      Happy Chinese New Year!!!

      I've just uploaded some code for the Wipy 2.0. I wanted to write some python code. That was why I took the Wipy 2.0 and programmed something like a weather report box. In this project the Wipy 2.0 reads the GPS coordinates via UART, then makes a web get request using the API of openweathermap, and after that the results are displayed on a LCD.

      If you like this, please leave a comment, share and/or like! It would be very much appreciated!

      Config

      boot.py: add your ssid, wlan password, and configure the ip address. You need this file if you want to connect the Wipy 2.0 to your router, otherwise you can avoid copying it and the Wipy remains as an wlan access point.

      main.py: you find some options here. The most important option is ledNumber. Set this value correctly.

      Options...
