Homepage of GPSS.co.uk updated 1800 Friday 19th June 2015 UK time.
GPS Software from Sunninghill.
Robin and June are back from Sicily, and Robin would love to hear from Snoopy's rescuers at sea ;-)
Links above, on all Robin's pages, take you to a particular page. e.g. "Home", "Contact", "AsOnTV", "Snoopy".

Robin officially retired in 2012: June says he retired 10 years before that. This site, GPSS.co.uk, began as a business site in 1995, and soon began to support the many thousands of people using GPSS for free, around the World - often in countries where SatNav or AVL was not available. Some of the pages are very old, but some may be updated every day - particularly GPS-related hobby pages. e.g. Robin's robot boats made attempts to cross the Atlantic 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. Robin spends a little of his time on the www.NHSCare.info Coughlan Campaign Charity, 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. More recently, Robin is getting some inside knowledge on topics such as NHS Patient Choice, and NHS mental health treatment. Check out Grumpy Old Man. Since Robin retired, he doesn't have time to do any real work - as June will confirm :-)

how to navigate
with this GPS Software and GPS,
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 here for advice. See Robin's new toy: the Linx 8 and GPSS with Speech Input.
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.
GPSS pioneered navigation and remote tracking for police, military, business and the public, from 1995.
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 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.
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.
