Poverty Spec Data logger

I've been tinkering with a DIY 'poverty-spec' data logger.

It looks like this:


And records GPS data, FishFinder Data, Accelerometer data.

Out in my hard-boat today (Rib too far away and no FishFinder) I managed to get some data logged. A few data point were lost when one of the connectors started to get a bit wonky

The plan is to convert it to KML ("Google Earth") at some point.




(Out of the River Arun and westwards)




(Not yet converted to 'g'. About 1/3 of the way I throttle back and the acceleration is just due to the swell)


The plan is to convert this to KML at some point....

Don't ask me "why" - 'It seemed a good idea at the time'.

Now THAT, is without any shadow of a doubt, the best (or worst) case of too much time on your hands Kudos for actually building it though

No, that's very cool. A friend of mine does that kind of thing and uses the results for very accurate and useful benthic surveys. He gets PAID for the results!

Of course, he's nukkin futs too, but hey!

This is quite neat, good job

I have been looking for a cheap accelerometer for a while, it would be very interesting to see what G we pull when going along, especially after the I think 10,000 recordings of 10G+ on day 1 of the Venture Cup that Cinzano recorded!

Anyone know of a cheap & simple one?

Now with KML...


(Red / gray = Speed
Orange line = depth under keel
'Teeth' = heading)
