Write a guide: astroberry and gps rtc #48810
Someone can help me gather information about:

1. how to config astroberry to use a smartpone with an app (netGPS) working like a gps
2. how to config astroberry to use the same mobile for RTC from gps

I think that gathering this kind of information can help many people save time and contribute to the development of the project.
When information is organized, it is more accessible.
I'm crazy?

I am designing a raspberry 3/4 based autoguide system that can be independent of the internet, which has as few devices as possible connected, with the power button and with an ssd. For now I am studying the necessary software then I will move on to the hardware.
Every kind of help is appreciated.
After this work , I will share the project.
1.NETGPS

1. First, connect your phone to the astroberry hotspot.
2. Assign a static ip for the phone (every time you connect to hotspot you may have a different ip)
3. Start Kstars and ekos. In the drivers aux tab chose GPS Nmea. Click save.
4. Start NetGPS Server. Create a server with the + sign and enable it. Pay attention to the port number. This one has to match with the port from ekos. I set mine to 50000
5. Start ekos. Go to GPS Nmea tab in the indi driver., choose connection and in the server option put the the static ip of the the phone an the port number and click set. Mine is 10.42.0.45 port 50000. Now go to options and click save to save the configuration.

The phone acts as a server. The indi driver is comunicating via IP with the phone. You need to point the indi driver to the phone, in the GPS Nmea options. The save the configuration.

Reading this, it possible to learn a lot about ekos settings

Next step is to configure chrony (rtc from GPS),. but I need more time to read the documentation ad to experiment.
