I have a U-blox usb-gps receiver, but I can not use it, because navigation apps do not get access to the location by gps.
In settings of last android rom there is no way to select a location by gps. Tell me how i can add location via gps in settings?
maybe they did not see topic?)
Our VIM3 don’t support USB GPS module now. But we will add support in the future. Can you tell me what’s the model of your USB GPS? I will buy one module to debug.
I am using the U-blox USB module (GNSS803G).
A driver for it is already in the kernel and works great. But i’m not sure about the gps library. I compiled gps library from the source for the odroid n2 (aml922), but I can’t check it without enabling GPS location in settings.
If i using the apps for mock location (UsbGps4droid, GNSS Commander), then navigation applications works fine. But this is a “kludge”. I would like navigation programs to work as they should)
Sorry for photo instead screenshots)
Please provide the gps library for me. Thanks

Hi @Terry just wanted to see if there has been any progress on getting this implemented. I’d like to use GPS in my car application as well.
Thank you very much, I will wait!
By the way, I added support for GPS and built the firmware from last sources.
I could not compile the gps library from the sources, so I had to use the old prebuilt lib ( without
timefix). Everything works with small bugs. It would be nice if you build a normal library.
I’ll write PM you.
on this cd is nothing useful. Only the U-center program for windows, that you can download in web.
Looks like it is available from the web address on the CD.
How goes this? I will need GPS for my Android project as well.
What about adding a serial GPS via GPIO ?
I have a USB GPS to use, as well tho…
Hi! I need GPS for my project too.
Advise solutions to the problem…
Can I use some gps module via gpio or anything else?
Всем привет! Мне тоже нужен GPS модуль для моего проекта.
Посоветуйте решения данной проблемы.
Могу ли я использовать какой-нибудь gps модуль через GPIO или еще что-нибудь?
Какой GPS девайс купить?
@JustSumDad same problem
Hopefully we get this figured out
I am working on a car install project too with a VIM3 Pro and need GPS as well. Looks like there are more and more people interested in getting USB GPS working. You love to see it!
Mine is a motorcycle adaptation of a carpc on Vim3 Pro
if I ever get one… I ordered it feb 5th and its still back ordered
Hello everybody. On my firmware I use a gps receiver U-803G from TOPGNSS. And I’m not sure that any other receiver will work. I dont have other receivers to test their work.
There is also a small nuance - the firmware is functional only if the receiver is connected directly to the USB port of the vim. When i turn on the receiver in a USB hub or turn on the system without a receiver it just freezes. I do not know what this bug is associated with (most likely due to the library used). And i do not have enough experience to fix this and any other problems, so I use it as it is.
In principle, almost everything that I need in the firmware works after preliminary settings. Except for an unpleasant moment with a turn to the portrait mode of some applications.
Vim3 has been installed in my car for more than two months, and during this time I did not any inconvenience. There was not even a thing to do was pull him out of the car and fix something.
If anyone needs, write me a PM, I will upload the rom anywhere and give a link to download it.
P.S. Terry with the same receiver did not work GPS on my firmware, I do not know what is the reason. It is possible that in his free time he will solve all problems with GPS.
