Why Connect A GPS?

The primary reason you would connect a GPS to a NST system is to geolocate systems based on WIFI transmissions.

  • You connect a GPS to your NST system.
  • You run the kismet process which will scan for systems using WIFI communications.
  • You then view the locations of discovered WIFI systems in Google Earth.

This page provides information on getting a GPS properly connected to a NST system. For details on using kismet after you have your GPS connected, see: "HowTo Geolocate kismet Data".
