I advise using a voltage divider with military spec resistors
Please read my threads, all the info,and values are there

notacop As the Scarecrow said.."If I only had a brain..." I'd love to make sense of a project like this. Good on youse guys!

lordneeko I recommend looking into this kickstarter project

Digispark - The tiny, Arduino enabled, usb dev board! by Erik Kettenburg — Kickstarter

Let me know if you need help coding anything. If I can't do it, I got about a dozen people that probably can.

the hunt continues.



Thanks!

I have looked at your project I think that is where I decided to try my own version of it

just have to find a case, and to interface the unit with the vstrom GPI (which I am nervouse about LOL)

Great, re-use is so important, in particular with open source projects. I my self re-used other components, concepts and open source projects to get things done. Nothing wrong with it, quite the opposite.

As for connecting to the GPS (Gear Position Sensor) - nothing to be nervous about it.
It is a 5V line. You just need to make sure that you use a large resistor so that you don't draw much current. really simple.
Start testing by connecting a digital voltage meter to the GPS pink line, I used a posi-tap. Takes maybe 1 minute to setup.
Then change the gears (with the key switch on, and engine cut off switch off) and see how the voltage levels change per gear.

DiscusZ-V:
You are welcome to look at the open source Stromputer project. Indeed, a similar concept based on an Arduino.
It is functional on the bike for some months now.

I wonder if you are planning to make your project open source.

DiscusZ-V GPS module added on Friday, tweaked GPS code took until into my truck and went for a spin, amazingly accurate to my vehicle speedo, with in a micro second it shows the same speed, direction heading works, lat/long next is gear postion on bike. then case, and mounting and done. they tweak code to make it smaller as I would love to record GPS info for putting on google earth or something showing trip path and altitude.

DiscusZ-V my GPS module is sitting at the post office so now I get to try actual GPS data rather than simulated data.. wish it was open right now..

I haven't seriously considered it yet. The demand has been so high that I thought to just wait a while before evaluating it. The lion's share of any of this work is in wiring in the data/control inputs, anyway.
