Description of the ML7 GPS Data Logger
Included in the kit with the ML7 GPS data logger are software, adapter and cable.
The ML7 mini GPS data logger is built around the MTK data logger chipset and the Transystem EB-230 GPS engine, and includes Flash memory for storing GPS logs. For charging the internal battery or uploading data, it has a USB-style cable to connect to your PC, using aTTL-level serial protocol (RS232), and requires a GPS-to-serial converter which is embedded in the cable. Although the cable resemble USB-to-mini-USB, an embedded chip converts USB signals to RS232and uses a mini-USB connector on the logger device to achieve the RS232 and power connection.
You need the correct USB drivers to be able to communicate with the data logger. The cable included with the logger device uses the Prolific Technology Inc. PL-2303 USB-to-serial bridge chip (0x067b). Drivers can be downloaded at: www.prolific.com.tw/eng/downloads.asp?ID=31.
Once the driver is installed, connecting to the serial port lets you see the live data logging (use a baud rate of 115200): screen /dev/tty.usb serial 115200.
Download the logs, using only the supplied software and special USB cable. This enable the device to offload the USB IC to save space within the ml7 mini data logger. Serial TX and RX signals are delivered to the ML7 mini data logger where there should be USB-D+ and USB-D- on the miniB connector.
