True though I did it so I can start up the server when I want and shut it down when I am done and shutdown pie gracefully instead of just powering off and on. I do have it configured to where if I wanted it can autostart. Also, in the new 2018 B1 they include a systemd script that can be used with the older version of Kismet as well if you want. Thinking of using that and systemd as my starters as well.

Does Wigle support the new sqlite output format of the newest Kismet already? Last time I checked it wasn't compatible.

Nope, that was another issue. Plus the new version is not complete and missing a whole lot of stuff the old one catches so I use the old one still.

Yeah, I was doing some digging into the sqlite db tables and fields, and there's a lot of information that gets saved in the 2016-07-R1 release that just isn't captured/saved in the 2018-08-BETA1 release. So I'm still running the 2016 code on all my raspis. I did shamelessly steal the concept of using the Pi 3B+ onboard wifi as a local AP/DHCP/NAT device so I can SSH into it from my phone and do whatever needs to be done and/or looked at as necessary... even in the middle of a walk/ride/whatever.

Still sniffing after all these years...

Just a general knowledge post.
While building a raspberry pi set up (or on any platform with no integrated GPS) most people recommend the GlobalSat BU-353-S4. But when I was building my set up the 30$ price tag was kind of high (this is almost a raspberry pi or a new wifi adapter). So, I found a method of building the same thing but for 3$. I didn't find any place describing anything similar so I'll post it here. Basically what I saw while looking at people setting up the GlobalSat receiver is that they use a Prolific PL2303 USB-UART driver. The word UART is an immediate hint on the fact that the GPS chip actually has nothing to do with USB and communicates using a Serial port. So, what I did is I found a UART GPS module which was the NEO-6M board (2.5$ on aliexpress) and soldered it to a CH340G USB-UART converter(0.5$ on aliexpress).
NEO-6M -----> CH340G
GND -----> GND
VCC -----> VCC or 5V or 3V3
TX -----> RX if correctly labeled TX if inverted labeling.
If the CH340G board has a voltage jumper select 3V3.
After connecting this contraption to a raspberry pi I've rut the generic:

Code: Select all

gpsd /dev/ttyUSB0

Code: Select all

cgps

and saw a 3D fix in a few minutes since I was indoors. Outside it takes 30-60 sec to get a 3D fix and then it maintains it really well. Kismet works perfectly on this cheap USB GPS module. Also, you can probably connect it to the UART pins on the pi itself but I didn't try this yet.

Could you, please, post a photo of the wiring for the module? It would help a lot of folks who are not familiar with that part of the equation like me for example. :) Thanks.

Here you go.
Down there you can see the voltage select pis usually there will be a jumper that connects two neighboring leads so you need to put in a postilion so it contacts the pin in the middle and the 3.3V pin.

Thanks a lot. Is there a way to connect it directly to the GPIO or it's mandatory to go via the USB through CH340G?

Apparently yes: https://www.instructables.com/id/Raspbe ... eo-6M-GPS/
