    after making a test program that is decode manualy NMEA sentence, I saw that I received a single string with 3 NMEA sentences :
    (program use listbox and strsplit to write NMEA sentence)

    $GPZDA Date & Time
    $GPGGA Global Positioning System Fix Data
    $GPRMC Recommended minimum specific GPS/Transit data

    These 3 sentences are separated by 2 specials Characters, but I don't know witch one (represented by square)

    Is someone already had this problem?

    How can I decoded this 2 specials characters?

    How can I change this (serial parameters?)?

    How can I securize data reading to avoid crash with not numeric data in latitude and longitude (single/double....)

    You could try getting their numeric value with "val = Asc(StrAt(...))" and then use "Chr(val)" in StrIndexOf(...) to find them.

    Why don't you let the GPS library to parse the sentences?

    The ending character is probably chr(10) which is linefeed.

    thanks for your Help.

    I unsderstand the mistake I do using GPS.dll.
    My GPS object is call "GPS1" and I do a sub call GPS_GPSdecoded in place of GPS1_GPSdecoded.

    So it's work fine now.
