GPS sensors are designed to provide precision location and time data but don’t function very well on their own – they need something that can collect and do something with the data! This GPS shield for Arduino is designed to connect a high quality GPS sensor to your Arduino Uno, Leonardo, Adafruit Metro, or SparkFun Redboard. Together the GPS and your programmed Arduino can be used to make things like a GPS compass, a super-accurate clock, or positioning device.
The shield has the GPS sensor, an onboard microSD card slot (for data logging / other general use), and a coin cell battery for up to 7 years backup. The onboard u.FL connector allows an external active antenna to be used in place of the internal patch antenna.
GPS can be a little overwhelming for beginners, but like most Adafruit products, there is an excellent tutorial going through the basics linked below.
Please Note: Minor soldering is required to attach the included breakaway headers.
- Dimensions: 69 x 53 x 6.7mm (2.7 x 2.1 x 0.26in)
- Low power module – only 20mA current draw, half of most GPS’s
- MicroSD card slot for datalogging onto a removable card
- Built-in datalogging to flash
- Internal patch antenna + u.FL connector for external active antenna
- Assembled & tested shield for Arduino Uno, Leonardo, Adafruit Metro, SparkFun Redboard
- -165 dBm sensitivity, 10 Hz updates, 66 channels
- RTC battery included, for up to 7 years backup
