Low-key smart glasses with GPS? Anonymous 23/02/12(Sun)15:10 No. 18484 ID: aae5a9

Hi /sci/!

I’m looking for a pair of smart glasses that looks like normal glasses to use with contacts. (Pic is how I want to feel using them, not what too look like.) I want to enter a bunch of waypoints into a GPS and then have the glasses plot them out for me.

I’m looking for a system that can be used without any ”smart” phone at all. I want the whole thing to be totally offline. The only thing I want to receive is GPS data & send nothing out.

Never going to happen. It's needs the computation unit to work, so it needs a cellphone.

Sorry for obfuscating the question.

Is there smart glasses that can work with an external dedicated GPS-reciever?

Anonymous 23/02/12(Sun)21:26 No. 18487 ID: 32135d

No, they need to run the programs that run the glasses on the computation unit. Your GPS will have to be heavily heavily modified, and reprogrammable to handle it, then you need a program that will run it, with locked down apis from the glasses.

Won't happen. You need a smartphone.

Can I put the phone in airplane-mode and yet still recieve GPS-data?

Anonymous 23/02/13(Mon)18:44 No. 18490 ID: be6f8f

Yes. Airplane mode just changes the default operation so that radios are not used, until you turn them on explicitly. You can be in airplane mode with wifi and GPS, for example. But if you just want to purely receive GPS, you could run the phone without a SIM card and without wifi or bluetooth.

So if I want to go "off grid" and not fuck around with a custom Raspberry Pi, I should get a "burner phone", no? :-)

Yeah, or any other ARM-based portable device.
