Added to your shopping cart. This complete module is built upon the same technology as the ET, but includes on-board voltage regulation, LED status indicator, battery backed RAM, and a built-in patch antenna! Not sure which GPS module is right for you? The data sheet for the EM is a bit foggy on what the directive pin does. High level is 3.
Page 3 of the datasheet shows the pinouts and specs. For an example hookup with an Arduino, click here. If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code. Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code.
You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. See all skill levels. If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics. Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component.
Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that? We welcome your comments and suggestions below.
However, if you are looking for solutions to technical questions please see our Technical Assistance page. Does anyone have a good way to mount this? I'm currently using the BeagleBone Blue on a quadcopter. The module itself has no mounting holes.
I have a couple thoughts but I don't know if it would be advisable: Solder the outside shield to another PCB with mounting holes.
Glue it to some plexiglass that I can mount to my frame. Any help would be appreciated. I would like to know how I can change the default Digital pins for Serial communication. And also de baud rate. Please could you help me? Thank you. What kind of cable is that? I can't for the life of me figure out how to break those pins out into regular wires. But plugging it in is proving to be an embarrassing challenge.
If not can it be commanded to reset? Once I cycled the power switch on the shield, the worked a treat. Still learning what the interfaces are and trying to figure out compatibility. If so, can someone provide a brief description of how the wires connect to an Edison block? Or do I need some kind of additional hardware between the and the Edison blocks?
Does this module put out PPS like its predecessor? It has something called "Directive" but I have no idea what that is. Does the unit have to be placed facing the sky, with nothing covering it? Would it still work if, say, there was a sheet of metal over it? Is it possible to buy the little cable with the two plugs on it which comes with the unit?
I need an extra cable. I'm not sure its the exact same length, but this should work. I see in the revisions that the 1PPS signal was changed to "directive". Is the "directive" signal also timing quality, or is there a way get the 1pps back? Is this not a 3. Does that complicate it's use with battery projects? Looks like a great part aside from that concern. It's connected directly to arduino pins. You may have to cut a trace.
The little connector is impossible to solder, you'll just end up stripping the cable which isn't easy ; However the unit it's self is fantastic, accuracy to around three meters. Ran this module up on my coffee table in the lounge, and despite being inside a double brick building, got a reliable fix remarkably quickly.
NMEA data is pumping out as expected, and the provided interconnect cable had me connected up to my dev board really quickly. This thing has great accuracy. After the initial fix it could place my location on a map with pinpoint accuracy.
The fix time is quick if you are under open sky. In a building it is a bit slower. I've only done some rudimentary testing so far, but it seems to work fairly accurately. The GPS appears to lock onto the satellites quickly, usually within a few seconds. Sometimes longer, but it could depend on the cloud cover. I entered the reported position into Google maps.
I was sitting near a perimeter wall of my house, and Google pinned a location just outside of my house, about 10 ft away based on the outline of the shown houses. The GPS speed updated quickly tracking the car speed. I got this receiver for hobby purposes and wound up building a small decoder using the Uno.
The reception is pretty good. It will receive just fine indoors with the curtains open. If there was anything else that I might wish for it would be to add an optional external antenna. This is the first GPS module I've worked with.
It works as advertised, including very fast time to fix. I'm using it as part of a clock, so in a perfect world, I would want a unit that had a 1PPS output. As far as I can tell Sparkfun sells units that have 1PPS, and units that have integral antennas, but not units that have both. Does anybody know otherwise? The module worked as expected right out of the box.
Receive sensitivity seems to be quite good, but I'm not convinced that the Time To First Fix is as good as advertised. That, combined with the absence of a 1PPS output, is my reason for a four-star rating.
The accuracy and precision is great. GPS locks to satellite signal in just a few secs. The signal is great even indoors. Although you might need to take it outside for initial signal lock. The setup was very easy and quick. Quick negative point : GPS documentation could be better. The baud rate of the GPS is not specified on the datasheet and one has to shoot in the dark with guesses.
GPS datasheet could be much much better. Before I purchased, I inquired if it was suitable as a replacement for the redundant EM and was told it was. However information about software changes like Baud rate will be required before it will work as a change over replacement so it was not a straight forward replacement as expected. We have not completed the software changes to make it work yet so I hope I am not premature providing this requested feed back.
