iPod Nano GPS hack

We haven’t been talking about any decent “hacks” lately. Well we just found one thanks to hack-a-day. Even though the hacker claims this is not all that complicated we advise you take his words with a grain of salt. After all the guy did end up writing a “graphics driver” to display the latitude and longitude on iPod’s screen.

Combining a reference design board containing a Nemerix GPS with an Atmel ATMEGA324 micro-controller (and of course assorted supporting components), I had the hardware tools to spit-out data to the iPod. However the iPod will not accept just any serial data stream. The data has to be formatted to display on the iPod screen, which made this project a challenge and appealing to me.
