Title: Frimware Check List: baud rate formula caution
Post by: Horsa on September 28, 2010, 10:17:07 AM
Q: In Gtop-Firmware Check List-V100816.* and Gtop-Firmware Check List-V100813.* there is a note:
Caution: This formula is not applicable when setting baud rate / update rate / NMEA sentence using MiniGPS tool or PMTK commands!
Could you please explain the reason behind that?

GlobalTop software engineers build the firmware using a more sophisticated SDK (software development kit) tool that allows for less restrictions on the bandwidth bypassing the original bottleneck set by MediaTek commands and the MiniGPS tool. This means you can fit more sentences within the same bandwidth when GlobalTop software engineers write the firmware for you.
