RE: [K12OSN] [OT] Downloading GPS data

OK, lets see.  Many moons ago I used GP50 data loggers to record seismic
pressure readings.  The two older units recorded readings from the pressure
sensor via a serial port, while the newer units had the GP50 built into the
housing of the sensor unit.  Poking around an archive CD from 1996, I have a
file called pos-gp50.hw2 (ahh, home word 2...)

Here are the contents of that file:


Downloading from the data loggers

1. Using the blue cable on FRED, connect the data logging unit (serial port
2. Fire up Terminate, and select "GP 50" from the dialing menu
3. Once connected, you will see a flow of current data
   Press crtl-b repeatedly until you get a ">" or ":" prompt
4. Turn screen capture on
5. enter "type pdata"
6. When data dump ends, turn screen capture off
7. delete the extra lines from the capture file
8. save to a floppy disk and give to Toni or Laura

On the red units pressing tab at the prompt will give you a menu.  Select
option 2 to download data.

{end of file}

My first question is did it break to allow entry of commands?
