GPS Software from Sunninghill, for GPS Satellite Navigation (Sat Nav) and remote tracking systems.
Robin would love to hear from Snoopy's rescuers at sea. Was it Royal Marines ? Beers ? See Snoopy ;-)

This is "Home". Links above, on all Robin's pages, take you to other pages. e.g. "Contact", "AsOnTV", "Snoopy".
From Robin Lovelock: I officially retired in 2012, but my wife June says that I retired 10 years before that ! GPSS.co.uk began in 1995 for our GPS Software business - now a hobby. Many thousands of people around the World used GPSS for free - often in countries where SatNav or AVL was not available. Some pages are very old, but some are updated. e.g. my robot boats made attempts to cross the Atlantic from UK to USA, in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 - all sailed by Snoopy the Viking ! See Snoopy's Robot Sailing Boat or click on the changing picture to the right. Since 2002, I maintain the NHSCare.info Coughlan Campaign Charity site , helping people in the UK to use the Law to get free long term care from the NHS, and not have to pay for the care home. I now also has some inside knowledge on topics such as NHS Patient Choice, and NHS mental health treatment. See Robin's Grumpy Old Man page for "Interesting Stories" unknown to many. The rest of this Home page has changed little since 1995. Since I retired, I don't have time to do any real work :-)
GPSS pioneered navigation and remote tracking for police, military, business and the public, from 1995.
See how to navigate with this GPS Software and GPS, then download and run it on your PC to see a demonstration.
Run GPSS on a Laptop or Pocket PC with a GPS, and this same GPS Software will work for real.
Need a GPS ? click on GPS for advice. See Robin's new toy: the Linx 8 and GPSS with Speech Input.
See ASONTV and Robin's YouTube Channel A bigger list of Robin's pages are here .
The last software update was
GPSS Baseline v6.97 November 2011
with GPSSppc v14 for Pocket PC based Smartphones.
"where is the book ?" See User Guide to GPSSppc for Pocket PC and GPSS Guide for Windows.
Radio Direction Finding
e.g. tracking a radio transmitter - see picture on the right.
Techys can add mapping to GPSS. e.g. maps from Bing and Google maps; sounds for spoken guidance.
"It's like having a little friend in the car with you" :-) - try speech input or make GPSS speak other languages.
Tried geocaching, "GPS Teasure Hunting" that started in 2001 ?
"Speed Trap ! Watch your speed !" - see the speed warning page.
See AVL/CHASE page for remote tracking, including fleet management and security applications.
GPSS can track and control multiple vehicles from a fixed or mobile PC, by use of mobile 'phone, radio or satellite communications.
The objects tracked may be vehicles, people, boats, or even bottles. They may be many miles away, but seen on mapping for 164 countries - right down to "house level" maps.
GPSS can also be used in "chase" mode, guiding the driver to a mobile target. See
AsOnTV for UK police doing this in 1996.
You will see that I am extremely "up front" about who we are, and our GPS Software business since 1995 - now a hobby :-)
Big resources are not needed to give people permission to use GPSS, or make the occasional software change. I have worked in larger companies and on larger projects than most people, and have no need to pretend what I am not. I greatly respect others who are able to be equally "up front" about themselves and their own business - however small it is - so don't be shy :-) Please read my business page.
I would like to thank the many thousands of "enthusiasts" around the World who helped us test and improve GPSS. This was a family business, but it is still a great network of friends. Thankyou.
