    Eggfinder LCD Question

    I own a Eggtimer GPS system (900 MHz) that I purchased assembled from another rocketeer. The receiver is mounted in a case, and currently has version 1.09e of the firmware.

    Transmission range impact?

    I admit my ignorance in terms of antennas and GPS/telemetry transmission range. This is an AIM XTRA 2.0. I added the two 90 degree elbows to fit my antenna into my av bay. Will the addition of the elbows increase transmission range, decrease range, or have a negligible impact on range?

    Android GPS Tracking App

    I had been using Rocket Locator on my Android tablet, but, recently it stopped working with Google maps, so, I'm working on developing my own app with somewhat similar functionality. I have a prototype working and somewhat functional, but, it is very rough. So far it plots the NMEA location...

    First Eggfinder Build--SUCCESS!

    Built my first Eggfinder Mini and Eggfinder LCD over the last couple days, and thankfully it all worked first go! I say thankfully because I got into a little bit of trouble on the Mini's GPS module. I had the four resistor leads soldered in place to act as 'guides' for the GPS module, but a...
