New Kit! GPS Logging shield for Arduino

[flickr 2616756753 ]

I’m so very sleepy today but I should post about this before a nap…After many many many revisons, my GPS data-logging shield is done! Ive spent the last few weeks taking lots of data, so I think its pretty solid. The design supports 4 different (popular) modules, and writes data to an SD card as a plain text file. For geo-sensor tracking, I wrote a sketch that will log 3 analog sensor values along with the location, date and time. Many people have asked me over the years about DIY GPS loggers so hopefully they will be happy now. 🙂

There’s even some ideas for power management, and waterproof enclosures

You can pick one up at the Adafruit webshop right now, along with a rather nice GPS receiver module.

Phew…I think I’m going to take a break from designing new Arduino shields for a bit: I’m pretty happy with the 5 I’ve got and there are many other neat projects clamoring for attention.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
