I suspect many people belive the NXT GPS is a hoax.

If it is, can you explain how it was done?

Yes. But not how long it took. Impressive.

I actually think it isn't working. The firmware hack looks like it works, but not the gps thing. It shows that it gets in satellites, even though my phone (which has built-in gps) is off and the NXT is the only BT device in the house that is on (even works with bt off). And ofcourse I think the Airforce/LEGO plane thing was fake. And I really don't belive in that levitation sensor thing either. The video was uploaded on april 1st, and the ball looks like it is being held up by a string or something (like the strings used on fishing rods, you know :-P ).

Oh and one more thing to Dave, in your gps program it shows "C:/" when it actually should be "C:\"
:-P
