Raspberry Pi ntp server gps

raspberry pi ntp server gps


You need:

stty -F /dev/ttyAMA0 raw 9600 cs8 clocal -cstopb

test gps

cat /dev/ttyAMA0



(eg, remove console=ttyAMA0,115200 and if there, kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200) /boot/cmdline.txt

dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait

Install ntp package

apt-get install ntp gpsd


# Default settings for the gpsd init script and the hotplug wrapper.

# Start the gpsd daemon automatically at boot time

# Use USB hotplugging to add new USB devices automatically to the daemon

# Devices gpsd should collect to at boot time.
# They need to be read/writeable, either by user gpsd or the group dialout.

# Other options you want to pass to gpsd


#ExecStart=/usr/sbin/gpsd -N $GPSD_OPTIONS $DEVICES
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/gpsd -N -b -n /dev/ttyAMA0

# Note that "restrict" applies to both servers and clients, so a configuration
# that might be intended to block requests from certain clients could also end
# up blocking replies from your own upstream servers.

# By default, exchange time with everybody, but don't allow configuration.

# If you want to provide time to your local subnet, change the next line.

# If you want to listen to time broadcasts on your local subnet, de-comment the

query and synchronize against a pool

KERNEL==”ttyAMA0″, SYMLINK+=”gps0″
KERNEL==”pps0″, SYMLINK+=”gpspps0″

The NTP status codes that ntpq is showing you are on this list, yours is showing an “*” which means you aren’t using the PPS, just the serial output of the GPS chip. You might want to look into that as the PPS is probably going to give you better time accuracy.

o = pps peer
* = sys peer
# = too distant
+ = selected
x = false ticker
– = discarded
