Accessing Parsed GPS Data

The parsed API is one of the two interfaces provided by the GPS Intermediate Driver for accessing GPS information. Applications that use the parsed API do not need to write code to parse NMEA strings returned by the GPS hardware. Instead, they leave the parsing to the GPS Intermediate Driver.

In contrast, the raw interface provides access to the NMEA strings. For more information about accessing raw GPS information, see Accessing Raw GPS Data. For a comparison between the two interfaces, including benefits of each, see GPS Intermediate Driver Architecture.

The parsed data API uses these functions:

For information about how to use the parsed API, see Overall Parsed Data Code Structure, which explains how to connect to the GPS Intermediate Driver using the parsed API, with GPSOpenDevice, and how to set up code to run when the GPS hardware provides new data, or when the hardware changes state.
